POST APOCALYPTIC | SLOW BURN ROMANCE | LOW-TECH FUTURE
THE IRON FISTS
The world ended 240 years ago... and then it kept on ending over and over again.
Now humans live in the ruins of what once was. Meteorites have left giant pockmarks on the surface of the Earth, destroying infrastructure and leaving settlments scattered and disconnected.
Harley, a former erotic dancer, lives with her sister in Bale Rocks, a town a stone's throw from the edge of one of the craters. Her town is rife with crime and gang warfare, but leaving is unthinkable. Beyond the town boundaries, the wastelands loom, filled with wild animals, slavers, and cannibals.
And yet, remaining means making peace with the things she has to do to survive.
There's a fine line between desperation and devilry in Bale Rocks, and as Harley is forced to make difficult choices, she finds herself pushed ever closer to the point of no return.
