For two veteran police officers and their small group of friends, the first day of the outbreak starts out like any other until they are confronted with a new and unexpected enemy. Each one of them is forced to confront the unthinkable. Zombies are real, and craving the living with an insatiable appetite. Against the full specter of a society crumbling around them, and the dead stalking the living in the streets, it will take all of their skill, knowledge and courage to survive. Yet, amongst it all, they still face enemies among the living as well. Armed gangs free to roam the streets. Powerful men who want to play politics with people’s lives, and wolves in sheep’s clothing. Together, the group faces an uncertain future as they struggle against relentless enemies, living and dead, in a devastated America.

Matvei, the Russian mercenary, had been poised to carve out his own empire from the ashes of humanity. Horribly underestimating the enemy he now faced, the once leader of an army struggles to survive against the very creatures he helped create. For Mike and Stephen, the idea to use an abandoned prison as a modern day fortress was brilliant. Solid stone walls protected them and their growing group of survivors against the relentless advance of the undead howling for their blood, giving the people inside a sense of hope in these dark days. Utilizing the skills and knowledge of the people sheltered inside, they had turned the old prison into a working community. They had shelter, food, and weapons to combat the dead. What could go wrong?

In a nearby conclave was Father Kettle. He was a man used to his position of authority as a man of God to get anything he desired. Now, along with a congregation of ruthless murderers, he desires everything the survivors hold dear. Father Kettle’s personal assassin, Jonas, had infiltrated the prison to undermine their cause. Joining their conspiracy, burning with the need for revenge is former Councilman Lewis.

All the while, far to the north in the burning remnants of Chicago, the countless eyes of an undead host, filled with hunger and rage, looked to the south…

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER (December 2017)

A stunning new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts—Year One is an epic of hope and horror, chaos and magick, and a journey that will unite a desperate group of people to fight the battle of their lives...

It began on New Year’s Eve.

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.
