Description

What would it be like to survive the plague? Could you make a good life in a brutal new future?

That’s the fate of the few survivors of a worldwide epidemic that wipes out billons of lives in Louise Welsh’s terrifying Plague Times trilogy. In No Dominion, the third and final book published this year, former TV presenter Stevie Flint has to make tough decisions to protect the fledging but fragile society she and a small band of survivors have carved out on Orkney. When some of the community’s children go missing she undertakes the perilous journey to post-apocalypse Glasgow to bring them back. Can she make it past the marauders, religious zealots and power-hungry robber barons, and what choices will she need to make to survive?

Join one of Scotland’s best novelists (and Arlington Baths member) Louise Welsh, to explore morality in the worst of times.
