Earthweeds – Rod Little

At world’s end, 98% of the population has suddenly disappeared. Two boys with extraordinary powers gather the last survivors to find clues to the vanishing, while searching for alien artifacts and fending off mutations: giant lizards and other creatures are battling for the remaining food supply, with the humans caught in the middle.

Sam, a boy who has superhuman powers able to generate electric charges, teams up with a boy who can understand the language of birds and spiders, and together they set out to find the answers. Another camp led by a mad scientist is racing to find the same answers, but for a very different reason. To save the world, they must face the evils of men and beasts alike, while a band of psychopaths stands in their way.

A gripping post-apocalyptic Sci-Fi thriller, fast-paced and intensely compelling.
