A new novel by Chris Ledoux. 

The fire awoke as the sun set on humanity.

A devastating super storm slams into the eastern United States, causing uncontrolled fires that burn through cities and the countryside, spurring anarchy and a mass exodus.  As ash clouds rain down toxic chemicals, mass psychosis begins to emerge among survivors known as the Dazers.  Fourteen-year-old Baeran Sheridan joins with the Seekers and flees his home, avoiding cities and the fires at all cost.  Trapped in the wild between the subhuman Dazers and roving gangs, called Jackers, Baeran befriends the mysterious girl Solstice Dayton.  When winter closes in, Baeran must opt between the alluring Solstice, a seer of fates and a kindler of elemental powers, or protecting his family on their journey westward while The Burnt Sunset looms on the horizon.
