The first novel based on a Trilogy of books from the Dystopia Rising game universe.

Many generations have passed since the Fall of civilization. So much has been lost that no one can really say exactly how it came to pass, but the world’s scars tell some of the story plainly enough. A terrible infection raged out of control - a fast-mutating disease capable of raising the dead and turning their insatiable hunger against the living.

Nuclear weapons turned some cities to ashes while conventional weapons turned whole nations into battlegrounds.

The world drowned in blood and fire as the living fought desperate battles, first against the dead, then later against each other as precious resources dwindled. In a flash, the time of culture and plenty was over, and the true test of survival began. This is the story of Tribeca Verrazano Rockaway, a proud name of survivors of Old York.

This is the her legend, a story that every sewer rat and iron climber in Old York know. Some of the legends say that she was a ruthless killer, but the legends should also say that she only ever did what she had to do.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
