What does it mean to be an environmentalist after the world has already ended? For Callum Israel, leader of the Ninth Wave oceanic activist group, this is the question that cuts to the core of his identity. In a post-war, post-Crash, post-disaster, post-everything world, nothing is certain and ideologies are meaningless. But the mission remains: search this crumbling world for answers to the cause of the Crash, and keep up the hunt for their missing sister ship, The Massive, lost and adrift in the chaos.
<p>Brian Wood's new, sprawling, post-apocalyptic epic takes the crew of the Kapital from the flooded remnants of Hong Kong to Unalaska, with stops in Antarctica and Mogadishu, as post-Crash ethics and economics are explored across a broken world.</p>
Following the Crash, the environmental group the Ninth Wave strives for purpose aboard the Kapital as they encounter a self-described utopian society and follow a signal north through regional wars, swarms of sharks, and encroaching ice ...
Callum Israel and the crew of the Kapital face their greatest threat yet: Arkady, Israel's former colleague bent on revenge. When the Kapital is bombed in port, Callum and Mag head into the dangerous streets of post-Crash Europe to confront Arkady. But what they ultimately discover may lead them to their long lost ship The Massive!
Meanwhile, Mary reappears in the Sahara desert, guarding a convoy of fresh water, holding a secret that might unravel Callum for good.
The Massive begins its most powerful chapter yet as Brian Wood, Garry Brown, and Daniel Zezelj unravel the ongoing mystery of Mary and set the stage for the final act, when the cause of the Crash is revealed.
