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?
HERE’S WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT APOCALYPSIS: BOOK 1 (KAHAYATLE):
“The storytelling was absolutely first class.” ~Trevor Morris, reviewer
"Elle Casey has done it again. Created a world that drags you in and won't let you go. I think I am a little bit in love with her brain ... at least the imagination part of it. I love books that make me root for the characters, and this one has you rooting from the very first page..." ~ Cynthia Shepp book reviews
"What took me so flipping long to read this book?! Apocalypsis: Kahayatle was so very different than what I expected - but just that much better because of it. Elle Casey creates a world ridden with violence and horror and injects the perfect amount of belly-laughing sarcasm, wit, and romance. Her characterization is phenomenal and honest through a setting that is disturbingly realistic..." BetweentheBind.blogspot.com ~ Jenna, Book Blogger
“I read A TON of dystopians and post-apocalyptic novels. They all run together, but not this one. This is the kind of dystopian that I want to read. I love the world Elle Casey has created. It’s a tamed-down, less-depressing, good-humoured The Road meets a more-aggressive, less sophisticated The Silence of the Lambs. Read this! It’s bloody brilliant.” ~ Lucas Deal, Goodreads Reviewer
“If you don’t enjoy reading books that tend to be addictive and take over your life until you have finished reading it, stay away from Apocalypsis. It was nearly impossible to put down. It is also funny - I spent most of the book chuckling or full out laughing.” ~ Tiffany Loves Books, Blogger and Goodreads reviewer
“Good Omens . . . is something like what would have happened if Thomas Pynchon, Tom Robbins and Don DeLillo had collaborated. Lots of literary inventiveness in the plotting and chunks of very good writing and characterization. It’s a wow. It would make one hell of a movie. Or a heavenly one. Take your pick.”—Washington Post
According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.
So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.
And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .
The hungry dead have risen. They shamble down the street. They hide in back yards, car lots, shopping malls. They devour neighbors, dogs and police officers. And they are here to stay. The real question is, what are you going to do about it? How will you survive?
HOW WILL THE WORLD CHANGE WHEN THE DEAD BEGIN TO RISE?
