But her life soon starts to spiral out of control and the supernatural events that follow her refuse to give her peace. The difference is, this time she is not alone—she has a group of friends willing to do whatever it takes to help her battle these demons once and for all. Faced with her greatest challenges yet, Cali must find the strength to listen to what the forces are trying to tell her and most of all, to listen to her heart.

About the author

An avid reader of young adult, adult fiction and erotic novels, Terah Marie’s love of reading is what inspired her to write. She wrote this book because she wanted people to know that supernatural phenomena is widely experienced by others and she doesn’t feel the topic should be avoided. She has worked as a hair stylist, medical transcriptionist and customer service representative, but her biggest joy was raising her daughter, who is now a young lady. Terah enjoys painting and making jewelry, and she also plays several instruments, including piano, trombone and violin. She lives with her husband, Jeff, her eleven-year-old daughter, Railyn, and her two dogs, Riley and Beemer, in Edmonton, Alberta.

New York Times Bestseller: A young girl’s visions offer the last hope in a postapocalyptic wasteland in this “grand and disturbing adventure” (Dean Koontz).

A PBS Great American Read Top 100 Pick
 
Swan is a nine-year-old Idaho girl following her struggling mother from one trailer park to the next when she receives visions of doom—something far wider than the narrow scope of her own beleaguered life. In a blinding flash, nuclear bombs annihilate civilization, leaving only a few buried survivors to crawl onto a scorched landscape that was once America.
 
In Manhattan, a homeless woman stumbles from the sewers, guided by the prophecies of a mysterious amulet, and pursued by something wicked; on Idaho’s Blue Dome Mountain, an orphaned boy falls under the influence of depraved survivalists and discovers the value of a killer instinct; and amid the devastating dust storms on the Great Plains of Nebraska, Swan forms a heart-and-soul bond with an unlikely new companion. Soon they will cross paths. But only Swan knows that they must endure more than just a trek across an irradiated country of mutated animals, starvation, madmen, and wasteland warriors.
 
Swan’s visions tell of a coming malevolent force. It’s a shape-shifting embodiment of the apocalypse, and of all that is evil and despairing. And it’s hell-bent on destroying the last hope of goodness and purity in the world. Swan is that hope. Now, she must fight not only for her own survival, but for that of all mankind.
 
A winner of the Bram Stoker Award and a finalist for the World Fantasy Award, Swan Song has become a modern classic, called “a chilling vision that keeps you turning pages to the shocking end” by John Saul and “a long, satisfying look at hell and salvation” by Publishers Weekly.
