Keith has always wanted to make a difference, but as a regular guy surrounded by superheroes, that dream has always seemed unattainable. That is, until he’s tapped for Shuteye, a secret government program founded in case of the end of the world—and in Keith’s world, the apocalypse can come in many forms. From a meteor on a collision course with Earth to the always-possible threat of nuclear war, the Shuteye program is humanity’s only hope for rebuilding if the unthinkable happens.
Which, of course, it does.
When Keith wakes up fifty years into post-apocalyptic America, alone and in a secret military base, he has one mission: reunite with his teammates, find any other surviving members of the Shuteye program, and help rebuild civilization. On the way he must battle zombies, feral mutated humans, outlaws, and mysterious, grotesque super soldiers, all while avoiding capture in a world ruled by women.
This unique, cross-genre survival story is a non-stop action-packed science fiction thriller that ignores boundaries and answers the age-old question: What happens after the apocalypse?
Fans of Charles Stross and Hannu Rajaniemi will lose themselves in this adventure as Threnody Corwin and her team of rogue Strykers contend with the aftermath of the events in Mind Storm and the unlocking of a new kind of psion power. They're on the run with Lucas Serca, who is closer than ever to destroying the World Court and his father's grip on the planet. Targeting the hidden cache of the planet's food supply meant to transform Mars into a paradise for the chosen few, Lucas triggers an escalating fight with the ruling government as worldwide chaos ensues. It's up to Threnody to save society before it destroys itself, but the cost is high and in the end, there is no such thing as compromise.
There is only survival.
In Threnody Corwin, K. M. Ruiz has created the coolest and most bad-ass sci-fi heroine since Signourney Weaver portrayed Ripley in the Alien films and Terminal Point takes her to the next level.
