Welcome to Wayward Pines, population 461. Nestled amidst picture-perfect mountains, the idyllic town is a modern-day Eden…except for the electrified fence and razor wire, snipers scoping everything 24/7, and the relentless surveillance tracking each word and gesture.
None of the residents know how they got here. They are told where to work, how to live, and who to marry. Some believe they are dead. Others think they’re trapped in an unfathomable experiment. Everyone secretly dreams of leaving, but those who dare face a terrifying surprise.
Ethan Burke has seen the world beyond. He’s sheriff, and one of the few who knows the truth—Wayward Pines isn’t just a town. And what lies on the other side of the fence is a nightmare beyond anyone’s imagining.
This is a FANTASTIC series and will be made into a television program in 2015 on Fox and I can’t wait.
All of the people of Wayward Pines are there because of one man, who considers himself a God. He and several hundred people were placed in suspended animation and awakened 1800 years into the future because said he could see the end of the world as humans had known it. When he was “brought back” he and his minions had to rebuild the entire town and put up a high high electrified fence around it to keep out the “abbies”, the abortions of previous humans, who are now monsters and prey on the new town inhabitants.
Only a handful of people know the truth and Ethan takes it upon himself to tell everyone the real history of the town and of David Pilcher, the man responsible. Some don’t belive at first but eventually they do and when Pilcher sees that they will all turn against him he does a horrific thing. HE TURNS OFF THE POWER TO THE ENTIRE TOWN INCLUDING THE FENCE THAT KEEPS THEM SAFE.
