[Heatwave] Introduction, characters, locations
The entire planet surface was burnt one day. Completely burnt. The only who survived were staying underground when the disaster happened. Now what? Survival. Restoration. Dealing with the reality. Dreaming of what one owned before. Dreaming of the past... but moving on.

Heatweave is a debut post-apocalyptic novel by Katarzyna NINa Górnisiewicz. It's very visual, broody with no happy end. No zombies, just a mysterious disaster to deal with and learn about. Written in Polish with additional English translation. The work has been in progress since early 2010.
