Shelter, book one of The Aftermath, is the first book in a new shared world series from Solaris Books that brings together leading lights of genre fiction in a bold new approach to shared world fiction. Introducing us to the world of The Aftermath, Hutchinson pulls out all the stops in this gripping, no holds-barred tale of what survival means when the world we know is gone and cannot be rebuilt to resemble what it was.

For almost a century after the coming of The Sisters, the survivors of rainswept England have huddled in their tiny communities, scavenging the ruins of the old world.
