When his world changing experiment is sabotaged, fifteen year old genius Benjamin Knight is cast into another world where an uneasy peace hangs in the balance.
Saved from near death by a band of traders, he joins the Road Trains on their journey north as he struggles to understand what has happened to him.
However, Ben soon realises that everyone has their secrets and that no one is safe, especially when one man has the power to realise his ambitions. Friends are lost, plots revealed and battles fought as the unlikely companions seek to prevent war.
They were too late.
Despite everything that they'd sacrificed, everyone that they'd lost, they were still too late to stop the army from the north.
Now, outnumbered and out gunned, the survivors from the Road Trains fight back against the force that has occupied their homeland, but Alexander seems to be one step ahead of them at every turn.
If it's always darkest just before the dawn, what happens if the sun never rises?
Alexander's army seems unstoppable. Phalathlan and Oster have fallen, and now they have turned their attention towards Morton where the surviving forces seem powerless to stop them.
