The world has entered an ice age like never before, very little remains of the human race and those still alive live in domed cities. Teenage boxer Soloman Wheat knows something is wrong when his father disappears, leaving him a gun and a note to trust no-one. Meanwhile his friend Cleo is more bothered about where her next hit of stem is coming from and getting her band the end of year gig at school, than the mysterious accidents happening to the machine that sustains them all.

Both are plunged into the underworld of their restrictive environment, and have to face the dangerous Clockworkers to survive.

This is a fairly fast paced thriller with some pretty violent scenes, but enough characterisation to make you root for the unlikely teenage heroes.

I have a soft spot for post-apocalyptic domed cities and the setting of this one adds to the grim, gritty and tense atmosphere of the novel.
