Abstract:

Having just escaped from the treacherous island that was once Manhattan, Brooke, Ben, Logan, Bree and Rose make their way up the Hudson river in their stolen boat, low on fuel, low on food, and desperately needing shelter from the cold. On their tails are the slave runners, who will stop at nothing until they capture them and bring them back. As they make their way upriver on their way to try to find the mythical city in Canada, they will need to use all their ingenuity and survival skills to stay alive. Along the way they will encounter crazed survivors, roving gangs of predators, cannibals, wild animals, a desolate wasteland, and an unstoppable blizzard. They sustain injuries, get sick, and the Hudson freezes over as they do their best to salvage what they can and avoid the slave runners' pursuit. They find a small island and think they have found respite-until events don't go their way. It is not until they board a mysterious train to nowhere that they find that things can always get worse. As they find themselves thrown back into an arena, they are shocked to discover that Arena Two is even worse. Thrown into a barbaric fighting stage, equipped with weapons, pitted against other teenagers-and against themselves-Brooke and the others will be forced to choose what's important, and to make the most difficult sacrifices of their lives.
