The last child. Humanity's final hope

Fifteen years ago, Earth's population ceased to mushroom. Wholesale application of population control technology had rendered man infertile, and it's not long before society loses its mind.

The Young and Old begin to spar over whose rights are most important. Leaders rise out of the darkness, and in political uprising food becomes a much fought-over luxury. Famine, plague and war spread like wildfire. And no children are born - anywhere. Two generations later, the spread of the immuno-factor was complete.

A team of scientists, headed by Dr. Richard Parnell and wife Therese, works tirelessly to produce life artificially. Then one day, a young girl walks into their midst. "I'm eight," the girl announces proudly. Mankind has been sterile for more than fifteen years... How can she be alive, and so young, when not a single child has been born for two generations?

Parnell and his team are now on a mission: to find the parents of this young girl, named Ria, before the trail runs cold and humanity's last hope disappears into the darkness. Unto the Last Generation is a gripping technological sci-fi thriller set in a dystopian future America.
