Description

No school. No phones. No friends. Just a race for survival.

A deadly virus, red fever, has killed most people on Earth. Scotland is a wasteland, overrun by wild dogs: The few survivors are terrorised by pirates and raiders.

Toby must race across a post-apocalyptic Scotland to save his family. He invades a fort, befriends a wolf-girl and steals a speed boat. But with super-intelligent dogs hounding them and fierce raiders threatening his life, can Toby save them before it's too late?

Red Fever and Black Tide are two thrilling post-apocalyptic adventures set in Aberdeenshire. Black Tide was shortlisted for a Scottish Children's Book Award.
