A World Rebuilt
R.K. Ward, author
Charlie Spencer should not exist. She should have died in the explosion that started World War III. Instead, she survives and finds herself 1,000 years in a future where her very existence must be hidden. The world is still tainted with nuclear waste, causing sickness and death. The waste is also responsible for a small number of mutants whose presence seems to prevent and even cure disease. Charlie is one of these mutants, her DNA changed by a millennium of exposure to the waste. She may hold the key to restoring health to the planet and its people, but a corrupt government would prefer to keep that power for themselves. In a post-apocalyptic world where steampunk has become reality, Charlie has to learn who she can trust, and who might be out to kill her.
