Maggie is imprisoned at Real Impact, a boot camp for troubled teens in the Mexican high desert, when she learns the outside world has been forever changed by the HORPOV-25 pandemic. Everyone and everything she once knew is dead. Guided by Abigail and her crew of "troubled" teens, Maggie embarks on a journey to discover what it means to survive in a terrifying new world—and in the process, finds a young boy named Valentino who is searching for home. Meanwhile in California, Warren and April are heading south on a quest to find April’s biological son. They are joined by their newfound friend Damian and his dog, Wolf. Along the way, they find signs of a threat that may have deep ties to April’s past. And as they draw ever-closer to Valentino, their lives collide with Maggie’s in a way that will change their world and shape the future of humanity. A direct sequel to "The Road", "The Cave" is another thrilling, apocalyptic installment in the IN CAVES & CATACOMBS series by author Elle Otero. "The Cave" can be read as a stand-alone novel, and is the fourth in the complete series. Fans of "Station Eleven" by Emily St. John Mandel, "Edge of Collapse" by Kyla Stone, and "When the World Turns Dark" by Jack Hunt will appreciate Otero's post-apocalyptic world.
