Sun Bleached Winter
Sun Bleached Winter
Lionel Morton and his sister, Claire are alone and in danger in a wasteland frozen in nuclear winter. Somehow, they managed to live through the collapse of human civilization, but the real nightmare is just beginning. Taking shelter in an abandoned bunker, they intercept a radio broadcast that promises salvation in “New City” — the supposed last vestige of humanity. Now Lionel and Claire have to make a difficult decision: do they risk their lives fighting to reach a place that may not exist, or try to survive on their own in the terrible cold?
Sun Bleached Winter is a dark, violent story of survival, desperation and loss that explores the truly terrifying reality of the apocalypse in a world where good and evil are meaningless and where killers, monsters and cannibals lurk just over the next hill.
