Daily Prompt: Coming To a Bookshelf Near You

Write a summary of the book you’ve always wanted to write for the back cover of its dust jacket.

Magnolias in the springtime
By Annetjie van Wynegaard

2044: Human life on earth is eradicated. All that’s left is an underground facility run by a mysterious doctor and his band of runaways, and the Newworldlings – curious creatures born from the decay, or a science experiment gone wrong?
2004: Dr Shin Hyun Woo, a scientist at the Kyungpook National University Hospital in Daegu, South Korea, makes a startling discovery at his top secret black ops research facility for protection against nuclear attacks.
2011: A British sociology student working at a butterfly sanctuary on the outskirts of Siem Reap, Cambodia, sees the future and a possible cure.
1999: A tsotsi in downtown Johannesburg, South Africa, overhears a dark secret and acquires a precious jewel that is of some relevance to the story.
April 2012: Two events coincide that bring on a world-scale catastrophe: North Korean rocket launch fails, and Black Widow gets sentenced to death in Japan after allegedly killing 3 men.
And you? You have just entered the last place on earth, hundreds of kilometers underground, where nobody would ever think to look, if there was anyone left to search for you.
