Toby, a survivor of the man-made plague that has swept the earth, is telling stories. Stories left over from the old world, and stories that will determine a new one.
Listening hard is young Blackbeard, one of the innocent Crakers, the species designed to replace humanity.

As clever Pigoons attack their fragile garden and malevolent Painballers scheme, the small band of survivors will need more than stories.
