For good or ill, the future has begun.
Fleeing the impossible nightmare, 10,000 from nations across the Atlantic seaboard found refuge on the Welsh island of Anglesey. There, they should have been safe. There, they should have been able to rebuild. There, they were betrayed.
Forced to flee once more, a hasty exodus was planned, but those plans were sabotaged. The survivors became scattered across the island of Ireland. Old-world supplies are scarce, hope is running out, and safety is just a memory. The snow has come, and though rain will soon follow, winter has truly begun.
In Dundalk, 800 survivors have occupied a local college, but the campus is too dispersed to defend. As they scour the snow-covered town for a safe route to the sea, they find signs of long-fled survivors and answers to a question they hadn't asked.
In Belfast, the situation is increasingly precarious. There are saboteurs in their midst. As the investigation into their identity slowly progresses, the terrorists continue to plot. Rumors of a mutiny escalate into a riot, while an unseen clock ticks ever closer toward humanity's destruction.
Set in Belfast and Dundalk over three days that change everything.
Coming next (towards the end of August), Book 14: Mort Vivant.
Stranded in France, Bill and Chester begin the long trek home. Can they trust their companions? Can they trust the survivors they meet? Have they really found a way to ensure the survival of humanity? Perhaps...
Happy listening (and Happy August!), Frank :)
