Ally Lane survived the sinking of the Betty Loo, escaped imprisonment, and averted an all-out war between the nations that would have destroyed the world. Now she is faced with her greatest challenge. She must cross the country, avoiding hordes of the undead and groups of people willing to do anything to survive.  While she travels with a rag tag group of survivors and new additions, the reality of their situation hits home. There are worse things out there than the zombies, and she can only think of one solution for them to live.

After a close encounter with a maniac convinced the zombies can be tamed and made into a new breed of soldier, Ally implements her plan. With only a handful of people left from her group, they make the trek to the coast where they find the rusting metal hulks of what used to be grand floating cities. When they board them, they discover they are not alone. Forced to make a choice between the lives of those she cares about or death, she does the only thing she can. Ally forges a shaky alliance with a man she doesn’t trust, but it will get her one step closer to her goal. The voyage is filled with peril and danger, but they reach their destination. Midway Island. Soon after, they discover there is something deadlier than zombies. As their time ticks away, Ally's strength, determination, and will are tested.

Firm leaders are dying, being taken out by an unknown enemy. The epidemic created by greedy corporations has grown out of control and the world is now a zombie utopia.
Ally Lane wakes up aboard a cargo ship dazed and confused. She has survived the explosion of the Betty Loo only to discover she's in more danger than ever. The captain has a hold full of zombies and the doctor on board is out for himself. The reality of what is happening hits her when she sees a map of the infected areas. 

Armed with the truth, Ally must find a way to let as many people know what is really going on. She runs into a snag when the captain betrays her, turning her over to an enemy from a past she'd rather not remember. Mark Richards, the man responsible for who she is, takes her to his compound. She ignores his attempts at talking, the anger inside bubbling over when she realizes he is the one responsible for the death of all her friends and her fiancé, Marcus, on the Betty Loo. She fights her way free, only to find herself in the middle of hell. Charlie Myers, a former friend turned enemy from her past shows up and with the help of him and his men they escape.

Ally doesn’t know who to trust, but has to play the game long enough to stay alive, figure out what's happening, and get a message out to those left.

Joseph Erdman is the head of the Israeli Firm, but abandons his post when the undead close in. He heads for America and the one person who can help him, Ally. In a remote location, several forces collide and Ally must side with former enemies and turn her back on friends in order to save what's left of the world.  Joseph has a plan, but he doesn’t share all of the details.
While Ally and a team of mercenaries try to get him to the Old House so he can claim the Presidency and give people guidance in the time of crisis, another foe is heading directly for them. Ally finds the Old House and another structure where men in uniforms are taking a stand. Joseph has gone missing and her opportunities to broadcast the truth are gone. She knows nuclear weapons were part of the plan and decides to get to them first.

#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.
