2408. Humanity has travelled to the stars through interstellar portals, but the rebels and criminals were left behind on a ruined Earth. Eighteen-year-old Blaze is one of the last seven hundred people scavenging a living in an increasingly lethal New York. Her mother died six years ago. Her brother turned traitor. She believes her father is Donnell, the leader of the uneasy alliance between the remnants of the Earth Resistance and the old criminal gangs. She’s not sure what Donnell believes because he’s barely spoken to her since her brother betrayed him. Blaze has survived this long by being too unimportant to kill, but now the alliance is on the brink of starvation, and an old enemy is trying to seize power. When an aircraft carrying three privileged off-worlders crashes in New York, it adds more fuel to an already explosive situation, and Blaze is forced to step into the spotlight. Can the traitor’s sister convince Donnell, the warring divisions, and the off-worlders to work together to leave the death trap of New York? Blaze thinks that failure will mean the death of everyone she knows, but then she discovers the off-worlders’ secret. The stakes here are far higher than just seven hundred lives. Scavenger Alliance is set in the same future timeline as the Earth Girl trilogy, but takes place several centuries earlier, and features an ancestor of the trilogy’s main character, Jarra.

Scavenger, they called him. Ben Elliott was a fool, everyone in high school thought, a fool for believing what his grandfather believed: the world was about to shatter. For years, Ben and his grandfather had worked hard to prepare for the end of the world, gathering supplies and equipment, buying what they could, taking any castoffs people cared to give them, and ferrying them to their place hidden in the foothills of Cat Mountain. Ben's grandfather was right-but as Ben discovered, things seldom happen as planned. All summer Artie Ames had felt that something was wrong, something she couldn't name. Even after school began in the autumn, she still couldn't shake the feeling. Then came what would be called The Last Friday. Suddenly, everyone she loved was gone and Artie found herself running in the dark. Everything Artie and Ben had known had fallen away, and winter was coming. Could they survive?
