Fifteen years ago, anybody who could afford it went underground to escape the cataclysmic weather and searing radiation on the surface. Anybody left up top had to make do. A lot has happened since then, and the people who are still around are survivors.
Dr. Jenny Hanover is a survivor. She trained as an orthopedic surgeon, but was still just a resident when the Tunnel Rats sealed themselves in. Now her practical medical knowledge covers everything from eyes to feet, and she makes a living by traveling and bartering for her services.
Out in the wilderness of South Dakota, she stumbles across the astonishingly prosperous, healthy, and peaceful fort of Turtle Island. Her skill as a surgeon is enough to make her a valuable addition to the community, but when her skills with a sword become known, the fort’s manager wheels and deals Hanover into staying longer than she wanted … while trouble brews outside the fort’s walls. Bad trouble.
