 I can’t believe we’re still alive. I can’t believe we’ve
made it this far. With the army I’ve grown, thousands of Urthmen have fallen.
But more await us. More are coming. It’s only a matter of time before they reach
us, before the King’s army finds us. And when they do, we’ll be outnumbered,
faced with an unwinnable battle. 


I must find a way to keep my people—my
sister and loved ones—safe. I cannot allow them to die.

After winning
the battle at the underground city, Avery and her soldiers have waged war
against Urthmen. But word that the King has dispatched his army changes
everything. She and her people must scramble to find a stronghold, a task that’s
seemingly impossible.
And that’s not the only challenge facing her group.

Betrayal threatens to destroy everything. Will it divide the human alliance
before the King’s army arrives, or will humanity prevail? Find out in this
riveting fourth installment of the Planet Urth series.

About the author

 About the Authors

 

Jennifer and Christopher Martucci hoped that their life plan had changed radically in early 2010.  To date, the jury is still out.  But late one night, in January of 2010, the stay-at-home mom of three girls under the age of six had just picked up the last doll from the playroom floor and placed it in a bin when her husband startled her by declaring, “We should write a book, together!”  Wearied from a day of shuttling the children to and from school, preschool and Daisy Scouts, laundry, cooking and cleaning, Jennifer simply stared blankly at her husband of fifteen years.  After all, the idea of writing a book had been an individual dream each of them had possessed for much of their young adult lives.  Both had written separately in their teens and early twenties, but without much success.  They would write a dozen chapters here and there only to find that either the plot would fall apart, or characters would lose their zest, or the story would just fall flat.  Christopher had always preferred penning science-fiction stories filled with monsters and diabolical villains, while Jennifer had favored venting personal experiences or writing about romance.  Inevitably though, frustration and day-to-day life had placed writing on the back burner and for several years, each had pursued alternate (paying) careers.  But the dream had never died.  And Christopher suggested that their dream ought to be removed from the back burner for further examination.  When he proposed that they author a book together on that cold January night, Jennifer was hesitant to reject the idea outright.  His proposal sparked a discussion, and the discussion lasted deep into the night.  By morning, the idea for the Dark Creations series was born.

The Dark Creations series, as well as the Arianna Rose series and the Planet Urth series, are works that were written while Jennifer and Christopher continued about with their daily activities and raised their young children.  They changed diapers, potty trained and went to story time at the local library between chapter outlines and served as room parents while fleshing out each section.  Life simply continued. 

As the storyline continues to evolve, so too does the Martucci collaboration.  Lunches are still packed, noses are still wiped and time remains a rare and precious commodity in their household, but it is the sound of happy chaos that is the true background music of their writing.  They hope that all enjoy reading their work as much as they enjoyed writing it.

 <b>The world has changed.  It’s dangerous, deadly.  Inhuman creatures rule the planet.  Animals have mutated.  The land is hostile.  But it’s all I’ve ever known.  Hunger.  Fear.  Panic.  Those emotions are my reality.  They are my every day.  I am Avery, and I am seventeen.  My father died a year ago.  Since then I’ve been responsible for my
eight-year-old sister, June. 


I worry we are the only humans left.


Humans have been hunted for centuries, to the brink of
extinction.  I must fight each day to
protect my sister.  It is the reason I
wake, the reason I breathe.  But how long
can I go on fighting?  How long will it
be before they find us?</b>


 


More than two hundred years into the future, human beings are
an endangered species.  The planet has
been battered by war, its inhabitants plagued by disease and death.  Few humans survived and remained
unaffected.  Most changed dramatically
and evolved into something else entirely. 
Irrevocable alterations caused by chemical warfare have created a new
species.  North America is in ruins and
has been overtaken.  Humanity has fallen
at the hands of mutants known as Urthmen


Seventeen year-old Avery is alive and unchanged.  But she has not been immune to the harshness
of the new world.  She has lived on the
run for much of her life, in terror. 


After losing her father, Avery is the sole guardian of her
eight-year-old sister, June.  Avery is
now charged with June’s safety as well as her own, a nearly impossible task.


Forced to hide deep in the forest and away from the cities
overrun by Urthmen, Avery and her sister are
constantly hunted.  Danger awaits them at
every turn.  They fear they are the only
human beings left, that they are the last of their kind. 


But are they truly alone?


Find out in this raw and riveting first installment of the

Planet Urth: The Underground City (Book 3)
We can’t stay out here in the open any longer. We killed the king’s son. It’s only a matter of time before his people find us, before they slaughter us all. We need to leave now. We need to make it to the underground city.
Avery, June and their friends are being hunted. They need to find fuel so that they can travel across the country to the underground city, to a place where humans live safely, free from the terrors above ground. But once they make it there, will it be the idyllic paradise they imagine it to be or will it be worse than the current nightmare in which they live? 
Book one in the hit series that's soon to be a major motion picture starring Amandla Stenberg and Mandy Moore--now with a stunning new look and an exclusive bonus short story featuring Liam and his brother, Cole. When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something alarming enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that got her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government "rehabilitation camp." She might have survived the mysterious disease that killed most of America's children, but she and the others emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they cannot control. Now sixteen, Ruby is one of the dangerous ones. But when the truth about Ruby's abilities--the truth she's hidden from everyone, even the camp authorities--comes out, Ruby barely escapes Thurmond with her life. On the run, she joins a group of kids who escaped their own camp: Zu, a young girl haunted by her past; Chubs, a standoffish brainiac; and Liam, their fearless leader, who is falling hard for Ruby. But no matter how much she aches for him, Ruby can't risk getting close. Not after what happened to her parents. While they journey to find the one safe haven left for kids like them--East River--they must evade their determined pursuers, including an organization that will stop at nothing to use Ruby in their fight against the government. But as they get closer to grasping the things they've dreamed of, Ruby will be faced with a terrible choice, one that may mean giving up her only chance at a life worth living.
