Genetic modification has rendered Earth's croplands barren.
Some survivors turned to Science.
Some turned to God.
Some turned to the Unthinkable.
Dr. Tula Macoby is a proud member of the Haldanian Protectorate, a compound built by those who believe humanity must embrace the same technology that caused the apocalypse. Bio-engineered with photosynthetic skin, their mission is to eliminate the cannibalism ruling the world outside the safety of its walls, one conversion at a time.
When a prisoner who is obviously not a cannibal arrives in Tula's lab speaking a language she's never heard before, she's intrigued. His gentle but firm refusal to be genetically modified makes her question for the first time the Protectorate's policy of euthanizing anyone who won't convert.
But the law is clear; savages who refuse the modification must be exterminated.
With time running out, will Tula risk everything to save the stranger from execution?

A cannibal wasteland isn't the ideal place to fall in love...
Eily lost everything in her pursuit of safety, including her twin sister. Now she lives a life of atonement within the walls of the Holdout, tolerated but not accepted because of her green skin and savage past. When news arrives that her sister may still be alive, she's offered a chance to rescue her—all she has to do is deliver a deadly plague to the very people she once called family.
As a trader, Jubal only avoids two things: slave trading and the green-skinned Flame Runnas. Unfortunately, he's forced to seek out both after a cannibal king takes his father hostage and demands Jubal bring back a green-skinned slave as ransom. The impossible mission is sure to end in Jubal's death, until sweet, green-skinned Eily makes his task far easier than it should be.
As Eily and Jubal travel across the poisonous countryside, they discover they have more in common than they first imagined, and Eily must decide how much of the peace she clings to is nothing more than an illusion.
With a father’s life at stake on one side and a sister’s on the other, someone is going to have to lose. And they both risk losing their hearts in the process.

Scientists call it innovation.
She calls the rape of the natural world.
Jaide does her part to live in harmony with nature. She recycles, doesn't eat meat, and only buys organic. She's teaching her daughter to have the same respect for life. When a genetically altered plant escapes into the wild, Jaide rallies her friends to pull the infected weeds.
However, they quickly discover that hand-pulling won't keep up with the rampant growth. The weed is taking over croplands and wilderness alike, eventually forcing the corporation responsible to implement scorched-earth tactics to destroy the infestation.
Their efforts fail.
As croplands are consumed, food grows scarce and civilization turns to violence. The rules of Jaide's insulated existence have changed, forcing her to make a choice between her ideals and her teenage daughter's life.
In the end, survival changes everything.

Humanity is on the brink of extinction in more ways than one.
Michael is the smartest of the Fosselite children, trusted to help in his father’s lab. The unconscious green people in there are not human; they are cannibals and must never be allowed to wake up. Although Michael doesn't like clearing the bodies when Father is done, he's determined to be a good boy.
Then Tula arrives.
She has green skin like the other cannibals, but she doesn't try to bite Michael. In fact, she's the kindest person Michael's ever met. Even Father seems to like her and doesn't strap her down with the others. Michael is delighted to make a new friend.
But when Father changes his mind, Michael realizes his obedience has been based on lies.
With Tula about to be reaped, Michael is forced to choose between a lifetime of obedience to family and his own new moral compass. The end result will impact a lot more than just his life inside the Fosselite mountain.
It will change the future of humanity.
