Throwaways by PJ O'Dwyer

Two thousand years ago, four children were cursed by their stepmother, separated and driven apart. For centuries they have searched for each other and now they are finally together again. With three new friends, they find refuge in the remnants of a dead city. They are the Throwaways, children who have been driven out of their colony because they looked different.

In the city they meet John Ashley, an aging warrior who has outlived his family and friends, and has lost all hope. He is at war with what's left of civilization; Jacob and his followers, who have taken over the city and begun to establish a new world. When Ashley discovers the seven abandoned children and becomes their protector, he is given a new sense of purpose, but when Jacob learns of their existence, they are no longer safe in the city. Their battles with Jacob, their escape from the city, and their subsequent search for a new home, combines myth and fairy tale in a post urban adventure.
