Everything has changed in Bloody Gulch…
When vegan, organic food-loving Suz returns to her hometown amid the red rocks of Arizona, everything is different. Her mother has morphed from a wilting wallflower into a gun-wielding sharpshooter and the Frankenfood corporation she most loves to hate has built a processing plant on the edge of town.
And he’s changed most of all…
Her nerdy high school boyfriend has evolved into a card carrying hunk, making her plan to let him down easy a little harder to carry out. As matter of fact, she might not want to let him down at all.
Terror lives there now…
But neither of them realize the biggest change of all—not until it starts clawing at Suz’s bedroom window in the middle of the night.
The hippy and the nerd must team up to save the ones they love.
Jackson Hart is a survivor. It's been two years since the virus first hit the country, and she watched almost everyone she loves die...or turn into zombies with a ferocious and insatiable appetite for flesh. Her instincts and her machete keep her alive, even if she’s forgotten almost everything she knows about living.
Luke Granger never expected to see another living human being, let alone that she'd be a fiery little thing who stirs his blood. Outnumbered by the dead, their only hope of survival is to get the hell out of Chicago and head south. Food is running out, and the walking dead are no longer mindless.
Jackson and Luke finally have something to live for––if they can just survive the night.
They look like an everyday family living an ordinary life. But beyond the edges of this peaceful farm, unimaginable forces of light and dark have been unleashed.
Fallon Swift, approaching her thirteenth birthday, barely knows the world that existed before—the city where her parents lived, now in ruins and reclaimed by nature since the Doom sickened and killed billions. Traveling anywhere is a danger, as vicious gangs of Raiders and fanatics called Purity Warriors search for their next victim. Those like Fallon, in possession of gifts, are hunted—and the time is coming when her true nature, her identity as The One, can no longer be hidden.
In a mysterious shelter in the forest, her training is about to begin under the guidance of Mallick, whose skills have been honed over centuries. She will learn the old ways of healing; study and spar; encounter faeries and elves and shifters; and find powers within herself she never imagined. And when the time is right, she will take up the sword, and fight. For until she grows into the woman she was born to be, the world outside will never be whole again.
The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsed—and more than half of the world’s population was decimated.
Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magick rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max. Some of it is unimaginably evil, and it can lurk anywhere, around a corner, in fetid tunnels beneath the river—or in the ones you know and love the most.
As word spreads that neither the immune nor the gifted are safe from the authorities who patrol the ravaged streets, and with nothing left to count on but each other, Lana and Max make their way out of a wrecked New York City. At the same time, other travelers are heading west too, into a new frontier. Chuck, a tech genius trying to hack his way through a world gone offline. Arlys, a journalist who has lost her audience but uses pen and paper to record the truth. Fred, her young colleague, possessed of burgeoning abilities and an optimism that seems out of place in this bleak landscape. And Rachel and Jonah, a resourceful doctor and a paramedic who fend off despair with their determination to keep a young mother and three infants in their care alive.
In a world of survivors where every stranger encountered could be either a savage or a savior, none of them knows exactly where they are heading, or why. But a purpose awaits them that will shape their lives and the lives of all those who remain.
The end has come. The beginning comes next.
