One of the most thrilling writers working today. Miss him at your peril.” – Blake Crouch, Wayward Pines

The second book in the Next post-apocalyptic thriller series

EARTH ZERO

As the remnants of the human race mobilize for an attack on the mutants who have taken over the abandoned cities, a small band of survivors are caught in the middle of the conflict.

Rachel Wheeler’s own mutant abilities could make her a valuable resource for the new government and the army it has formed in the wake of the apocalypse. But the people who want to take back the world have a ruthless vision for the future, and a toxic planet is unleashing its rage in the form of deadly predators. Meanwhile, the mutants are evolving at an astonishing rate and establishing a social order that defies human control. When her group is drawn into the ultimate war, Rachel must decide whether to stay loyal to the ones she loves or fight for ideals she doesn’t fully embrace. 

The top of the food chain is at stake, and the extinction of the human race may not be the worst possible outcome.

 “Always surprises and always entertains.” – Jonathan Maberry, Patient Zero

"He has a fresh and true voice that will affect you, disturb you, enrage you, or make you laugh. He will not, however, leave you cold."--Kevin J. Anderson, co-author of Dune: House Atreides

Next #3: Radiophobia

When mutants develop technology that threatens the dwindling human race, the last survivors fight to regain control of their world.

Rachel Wheeler and her friends are dropped into the enemy stronghold of Wilkesboro as part of a desperate military operation. Their mission is to disrupt a new energy source that will give the mutants unlimited power. Even as the remnants of the central government plan nuclear strikes on all major mutant colonies, a mysterious new fallout threatens them all.

Will the nuclear holocaust deliver a final victory to the human race, or will the survivors face their own extinction in a world overrun with monsters and strange new races?

Look for Next #4: Directive 17, as well as the AFTER and ZAPHEADS series.

 "One of the most thrilling writers working today. Miss him at your peril." - Blake Crouch, Dark Matter

A near-future spinoff of the bestselling AFTER post-apocalyptic thriller series.

NEXT #1: AFTERBURN

Five years after a devastating solar storm wipes out civilization and spawns a strange race of mutants, Rachel Wheeler and her misfit family must choose whether to hide away or fight to join other survivors.

As their food supply dwindles in the military bunker they’ve occupied, radiation from abandoned nuclear plants is altering the world around them. Not only are the mutants building their own cities and weapons, the remaining dregs of the U.S. military are massing for an attack. As the environment decays, hostile new creatures crawl out from the crevices and up from the waterways to threaten them all.

But as a half-mutant, Rachel’s choice isn’t as simple as mere survival—the mutant way of life might be more promising than anything humans could hope to restore. And Rachel’s next decision could tear apart her family and the entire world.
