Even as Daniel’s troops close in on Thunder Mountain, Smith insists on taking Jeremiah and Kurdy to a children’s home that neither of them has ever seen before. There, a few adult survivors of the Big Death have banded together to shepherd the next generation of the human race toward their own adulthood. And they’ve made a discovery: the new generation of children is smarter than previous generations, and at a much younger age, though no one knows if this is evolution at work, or a side effect of the virus. Smith hopes that the home can be protected, but Marcus can’t guarantee this when an attack closes his supply lines right on the doorstep of Thunder Mountain. Worse yet, evidence is uncovered of sabotage taking place within the complex – Sims’ people are already inside. And on the eve of battle, when Jeremiah discovers how and why Libby really died, it seems there’s little chance that he’ll forgive either Sims or Smith.
