The Electric kingdom by David Arnold

This is a post apocalyptic YA novel.
Arising as if from nowhere (but hinted as genetic tampering in Russian labs) massive swarms of carnivorous flies attack everybody, in a second you’re skin and bone.

Fifteen years later we have a few kids and one adult survivor living in an old cinema (the electric kingdom). Many miles away we have a girl and her dog on a mission for her scientist dad, now living in a shuttered farmhouse.

The two parties unite and journey together. An unknown guardian keeps appearing to help. Then it’s revealed there are one way time portals (known as tollbooths) scattered around the country, that’s what the old scientist was working on.

The story then takes on a wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey aspect, with a somewhat confusing mish mash of story arcs.

Conclusion: not too bad but a bit wordy
