The west coast left the United States. Nevada piggybacked along but then refused to join the new country of Pacifica. Instead, the rebels formed the independent nation-state of NEVADALAND. Tribes reign in the wilds as cities struggle with poverty and crime. Underneath the weirdness and lies, NEVADLAND is all about power.
In Volume 1, THE PLAYERS, Diesel Duran graduates from her low status as a ward of the state and enters into adulthood. Except in NEVADALAND that means she must battle to the death in the zone for the entertainment of home viewers. Girls don’t fight in the games, but the system refuses to acknowledge its mistake. During her training, she learns how to cheat from Cheng, to fight from Bull, and to hide from Walker. And while these new skills certainly help, she’s got unique talents of her own.
Part Hunger Games, part Running Man, part Mad Max, and part X-Files the NEVADALAND series offers non-stop adventure, bizarre creatures, dystopian conspiracies, impending doom, and an ongoing alien mystery. Nothing is what it appears to be, and everything is so much more in NEVADALAND.
