Summary

Two children discover a secret that could alter human existence in a world where a virus has caused global infertility.

How far would you go to save those you love? Lowrie and Shen are the youngest people on the planet after a virus caused global infertility. Closeted in a pocket of London and doted upon by a small, ageing community, the pair spend their days mudlarking and looking for treasure - until a secret is uncovered that threatens not only their family but humanity's entire existence.

Now Lowrie and Shen face an impossible choice: in the quiet at the end of the world, they must decide what to sacrifice to save the whole human race.

NOTE : One of the characters is bisexual and there is a loving relationship between a woman and a trans man. These relationships aren't central to the plot, they're a matter of fact.
