Lucy dreams of being a maid in one of the houses of the gentry - anything to get her closer to the queen and further from her drunken father.

By an odd twist of fate, she finds employment at the house of Dr Dee, court magician and consultant to Elizabeth I. Lucy is intrigued by the mysterious work of the doctor and his dark associate, Mr Kelly. She can’t resist poking her nose in, especially if it means catching a glimpse of the queen.

It's the near future - the very near future - and the fossil fuels are running out. No gas. No oil. Which means no driving. No heat. Supermarkets are empty. Malls have shut down. Life has just become more local than we ever knew it could be. 

Nobody expected the end to come this fast. And in the small town of Spring Valley, decisions that once seemed easy are quickly becoming matters of life and death. There is hope - there has to be hope - just there are also sacrifices that need to be made, and a whole society that needs to be rethought. 

Teens like Nicki, Tom, and Leila may find what they need to survive. But their lives are never going to be the same again.
