Inspired by Hugh Howey’s world of Wool, “The Last Prayer” features… …A Different Silo, A Different Threat. In the post-apocalypse, society continues in underground silos, kept safe from the toxic world above by a simple hatch door and a strict set of rules.

For generations, an oligarchy of priests and politicians preserved their standing while the common workers lived in ignorance. When a young girl starts speaking of heaven as if it were just outside, the rigid caste system begins to crack. Sides are quickly drawn.

The only thing preventing a violent upheaval is an old priest’s confession and the child’s last prayer. But will such simple faith be enough to save them all?

“One of dystopian fiction’s masterpieces alongside the likes of 1984 and Brave New World.” — Daily Express

The first book in the acclaimed, New York Times best-selling trilogy, Wool is the story of mankind clawing for survival. The world outside has grown toxic, the view of it limited, talk of it forbidden. The remnants of humanity live underground in a single silo.

But there are always those who hope, who dream. These are the dangerous people, the residents who infect others with their optimism. Their punishment is simple. They are given the very thing they want: They are allowed to go outside.

After the previous sheriff leaves the silo in a terrifying ritual, Juliette, a mechanic from the down deep, is suddenly and inexplicably promoted to the head of law enforcement. With newfound power and with little regard for the customs she is supposed to abide, Juliette uncovers hints of a sinister conspiracy. Tugging this thread may uncover the truth . . . or it could kill every last human alive.

“An extraordinary real picture of human beings numbed by catastrophe but still driven by the unconquerable determination of living creatures to keep on being alive.” —The New Yorker

The classic apocalyptic novel by Pat Frank, first published in 1959 at the height of the Cold War, with an introduction by award-winning science fiction writer and scientist David Brin.

“Alas, Babylon.” Those fateful words heralded the end. When the unthinkable nightmare of nuclear holocaust ravaged the United States, it was instant death for tens of millions of people; for survivors, it was a nightmare of hunger, sickness, and brutality. Overnight, a thousand years of civilization were stripped away.

But for one small Florida town, miraculously spared against all the odds, the struggle was only just beginning, as the isolated survivors—men and women of all ages and races—found the courage to come together and confront the harrowing darkness.

Dark Universe

The classic tale of a post-apocalyptic world where humans have built a society in the dark underground. The descendents of the survivors only remember the pre-apocalyptic world in old stories, legends and myths. ***

Light, itself, is remembered as something holy, and Radiation is feared as the ultimate evil. ***

Jared is the son of the Prime Survivor, the leader of the Lower Level Clan. In a world of darkness and monsters both real and imagined, Jared embarks on a quest for Light. Little does he know just how dangerous his quest will turn out to be.

The day after The Flux hit, Jase Holland was still alive…and immune. The world was not as fortunate. The Flux was a genetic plague—possibly leaked from a biowarfare lab—and it played havoc with the DNA of everything living, mutating genes and creating strange new sentient beasts both beautiful and monstrous.

Rushing home to search for Jenn, his pregnant fiancé, Jase encountered what appeared to be demons intent on destroying the remnants of humanity. Calling them the Vile, he wondered if something other than humanity’s hubris and irresponsibility had triggered The Flux. Evil forces were on the march and Jenn was nowhere to be found.

Fleeing to Louisiana, Jase joined a group of other Immunes for safety and survival. But he never gave up his search for Jenn and their child. It’s been fifteen years since the plague struck, and it’s time to move on. There’s only one problem. The Vile have discovered their hidden sanctuary. And the stakes are life and death.

Although humans are no longer the only sentient species on earth, they may be the first to go extinct.
