THE GREAT AWFUL

Chronicles Publishing

When Devastation, Plague and Inhumanity attack, a young woman struggles to survive… Who to Trust? Who to Kill?

First Book in the Dystopian REIVERS’ INCURSION thriller series by KAYLAN DOYLE………



Katie Davis and her mother are alone the night a series of earthquakes rocks their isolated home. In the valley below Katie’s house, an erupting volcano spews lava, incinerating everything in its path. Power grids explode and communications systems fail.



The earthquakes force an ancient meteor up through the earth’s surface, bringing yet another disaster. Something … far greater than nature … is responsible.



Katie and her mother have no way to know the police are dead. No way to know inmates have escaped from jails and institutions and that people are fleeing populated areas.



For years, Katie has asked why they hide. For years, her parents have refused to explain while her military father trains her in weapons use and combat skills, with the expectation that she will protect her emotionally fragile mother.



Like the malevolent meteor, Katie’s training surfaces … with deadly intent. Pushed to the breaking point, how far will she go? What is she willing to do to survive?

About the author

Kaylan has been an avid reader and writer all her life, especially action thrillers. Then a co-worker loaned her Dune. Hooked-by the first three pages, science fiction remains her favorite genre. Her lifelong goal – writing a novel – became a reality with the science fiction release of Survivors’ Dreams (2011). A fast-paced action thriller set in a far futuristic galaxy, filled with danger, tension, romance and conflict. Kra’aken survivors battle for their lives on a hostile planet ruled by a vicious alien species, bound by vows to obliterate the Kra’aken race. Growing up in the rough and exotic terrain of Eastern Oregon, Kaylan loved the geodes – called Thunder Eggs – found in the region’s rock formations. The elusive and strange beauty of the crystal formations inside the geode’s, inspired her Young Adult dystopian fiction – The Great Awful (2014). Kaylan lives in the Pacific Northwest with her extraordinary husband and quirky Pixiebob cat. Surrounded by all the glory of the area – from breathtaking mountains, rain forests, lakes and ocean – the beauty of nature inspires her muse to create strange, fascinating and dangerous environments. Kaylan enjoys reading, writing, weight lifting, needlework, and collecting vintage jewelry. The acquisition of an exceptional Juliana parure, provided the inspiration for her urban fantasy - Bijoux Majik, which will be released during the summer of 2014.
