John Tiggs, mining engineer and munitions expert, tried to get back to the small town of Moose Creek after the first ash fall from the Yellowstone caldera. Instead, he got picked up during a martial law crackdown and thrown in a labor camp. To free himself, he agrees to work for FEMA for six months helping with their rescue and recovery efforts. It is hard and dangerous work, but John finds it emotionally satisfying, knowing that he is making a difference.

Nearly two years later, John is finally on his way home to an unknown reception-he let a lot of people down when he left, and now it's time he made it up to them.

Meanwhile, Allexa Smeth, Emergency Manager and reluctant deputy mayor of Moose Creek, has her own problems when a band of rogue militants comes to town and tries to seize control. With Colonel James Andrews missing, Allexa must enlist the help of the nearby military base to save her town from an even bigger threat.

Nora Roberts
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

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.
