We know you are here, our brothers and sisters. We will, one day, emerge from the Dome to join you in peace.
For now, we watch from afar, benevolently. Pressia Belze has lived outside of the Dome ever since the detonations.
Struggling for survival she dreams of life inside the safety of the Dome with the 'Pure'. Partridge, himself a Pure, knows that life inside the Dome, under the strict control of the leaders' regime, isn't as perfect as others think.
Bound by a history that neither can clearly remember, Pressia and Partridge are destined to forge a new world.

Review by atreic
I never thought I would reach a point where I would say 'you know what, maybe I've read enough post-apocalypictic dytopias for a bit'. But maybe I have. This is likeable and readable. The author sidesteps the obvious love triangle in a pleasing way. It reminds me of Harry Potter, in that much of the plot of the protagonists is shaped by the story of their parents, which neither they nor the reader fully knows yet. I remain slightly divided about whether the fusings (disfigurements where the victims became fused to inanimate objects, creatures, or other people during the atomic bomb) were too far fetched and gimmicky, or a really interesting idea. The world is very 'small' and both the bad guys and the good guys feel slightly too omnipotent. But I am looking forward to seeing where this goes next.
