Pines Overview

"Pines" is a science fiction thriller by Black Crouch which involves the efforts of Ethan Burke, a Secret Service agent, to track down two missing agents in the town of Wayward Pines, Idaho. But Ethan discovers nothing is so cut-and-dried: the town is the last town on earth with the goal of saving the human race against humanoids called abbies, the descendents of homo sapiens, who are cannibalistic, highly evolved creatures. The novel thus deals with timeless and relevant themes of dystopianism, survival, and mystery.
