Massive electrical storms roll across the upper peninsula of Michigan as a result of the supervolcano eruption out west. Destructive lightning sets the city on fire, illuminating the night with crimson skies.

Allexa Smeth and her town of Moose Creek are finding it more and more difficult to survive the latest unleashing of natural–and manmade–disasters.

Crimson Skies continues the saga of The Journal and takes the reader head-long into the fury that only Mother Nature can dish out.

About the author

Deborah Moore lives a quiet life in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan with her cat, Tufts. She was born and raised in Detroit, the kid of a cop, and moved to a small town to raise her two young sons, then moved to an even smaller town to pursue her dreams of being self-sufficient and to explore her love of writing.

Being a life-long Prepper, Deborah has done numerous articles for magazines, and speaking engagements at conventions regarding the subject.

Her first published novel, The Journal: Cracked Earth, made the Best Seller’s list in just six weeks. Book Two of the series, Ash Fall, went to the printer eight months early because of the unprecedented popularity and Book Three, Crimson Skies, is proving to be even more popular. And Deborah is delighted to announce that book #4 is right around the corner.

Allexa Smeth has believed in being prepared ever since she got caught up in a grocery store mob hours before a big snow storm in Detroit. Many years later she’s living a quiet and peaceful life in a remote region of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and still preparing. This serves her well when a horrendous natural disaster rocks the entire country and brings all shipping to a halt, leaving many without food and other necessary supplies. In her small town of Moose Creek, Allexa serves as the little needed emergency manager, but is called on when many start to feel the effects of the food and gas shortage and they don’t know where else to turn.

The nearby county seat is overwhelmed and leaves Allexa to handle the problems that arise on her own. With the crisis worsening, power plants begin to divert electricity to the major cities, leaving the town a casualty of the needs of the many outweighing the needs of the few. With this happening at the beginning of winter, the timing couldn’t be worse. The lack of heat pushes the residents to the limits of endurance; some leave for the city to be taken care of, others stay only to die of exposure, starvation or illness. Still others that have stayed survive by working together, only to be attacked by outsiders wanting what little the town has left. As the winter progresses, more and more issues come up for Allexa to deal with, some of a very personal nature. Her son turns to her for help in caring for his autistic child when his wife goes missing. She then learns to prioritize and she learns she can’t save everyone.
