A short story.
Set in the world of the Heartland, this short story takes readers back in time, back to when things were simpler yet no less dangerous for the Big Sky Scavengers. Gwennie’s little brother, Scooter, is missing and all signs point to one abandoned processing plant. The plant is said to be teeming with shuck rats, and not your regular variety of them. What waits for Gwennie and Cael inside the plant? Is Scooter really in there?
