This discounted ebundle of the John Matherson Series includes: One Second After, One Year After, The Final Day

“Forstchen is the prophet of a new Dark Age. The wise will listen.” —Stephen Coonts

From New York Times bestselling author, William R. Forstchen: In the span of a single second, the United States is plunged into darkness as an Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) wipes out all electricity. Trains, planes, cars, phones, computers, power plants, electronics and electrical equipment—all comes to a screeching halt. The country is in chaos, and everyone wants to know why. Whatever the cause, looting, food riots, and global insurrection are the order of the day. The New Dark Ages are suddenly upon us in this series exploring the potential aftermath of a very real threat.

One Second After — In the novel that was cited on the floor of Congress as a book all Americans should read, professor John Matherson struggles to save his family and his small North Carolina mountain town after America loses a war in one second, a war that will send the country back to the Dark Ages.

One Year After — Two years after nuclear weapons were detonated above the United States and brought America to its knees, the survivors of Black Mountain, North Carolina, are beginning to recover technology and supplies they had once taken for granted, like electricity, radio communications, and medications. When a “federal administrator” arrives in a nearby city, they dare to hope that a national government is finally reemerging. But the new regime is beginning to look a lot like tyranny.

The Final Day — Since the detonation of nuclear weapons above the United States more than two years ago, the small town of Black Mountain, North Carolina has suffered famine, civil war, and countless deaths. Now, after defeating a new, tyrannical federal government, John Matherson and his community intend to restore their world to what it was before the EMP apocalypse. For the most part, they are succeeding . . . but progress is halted when the national government overturns the Constitution and a terrible truth is revealed: the people in power may have seen the EMP strike coming all along.

A series of battles will bring both sides together in one final, massive battle that will decide the war. Can Cate Harrow and Gort Eagleton survive and avoid disaster?

This ebook also contains the first novella in a new series (Tales of the High Avenging Angel)


LeClair was just about to give the order to deploy the RD2s into their pre-jump positions when the tactical display double-pinged and the icons representing Bismarck Sea and Valley Forge suddenly began flashing to denote damage of some kind. Before he could say anything, Waterloo’s icon started flashing too.

“What the hell is happening?” snarled LeClair.

“Admiral, Waterloo has multiple hull breaches and the number is continuing to grow!”

LeClair recognized the voice of Waterloo’s C.O.

“Valley Forge reports they’re under attack, Admiral!” shouted the com technician.

“But from where dammit?” yelled LeClair.

“We have to jump away, Admiral!” Waterloo’s C.O.’s voice was on the ragged edge of panic.

“NO!” shouted CAG. “The squadrons don’t have a rally point! If we jump away now, they’ll never find us again!”

“And if we stay long enough to give them a rally point, we might not be able to jump away at all!” said the C.O.

The CAG started to say something, but LeClair cut him off. “We jump right now! Fleet Commander to all units, emergency jump NOW. I repeat NOW!”
