Siblings Calix and Annora have spent their entire lives within Sanctum, the domed town that protects them from the dangerous sands that storm against the curved wall. But they are orphans, with questions about their heritage. With a childhood that prepares them to become scavengers. With a father figure in Kirillion who has an agenda all of his own – just what are they searching for when the scavenger crews depart?
The Nothing Within
In 2161, the first chimera arose. A year later, twelve billion people were dead. The few who survived called it the Reckoning.

Root couldn’t be more different.
