A dark, gritty post-apocalyptic tale of love & loathing!
Alex, her sisters, and their kids are on their way to her camp in the Adirondack Mountains for the Columbus Day weekend when the unthinkable happens. A voice on the radio warns the country is under attack! Greeted by guns and bullets when they try to seek shelter, they’re forced to hide in a cave to wait out the fallout. After two weeks in their dank hole, Alex wakes up one morning to discover her sisters gone. They’ve taken the rented minibus and returned to the city to search for their husbands, leaving Alex to care for her 7 nieces and nephews. It’s an arduous 35-mile hike through the mountains to her camp‚Ä¶a journey through hell! Society is devolving. The strong: looters, murderers, and rapists; preying on the weak. The small hamlets and villages they pass through have become killing fields, as survivors battle each other for the few remaining supplies. Above them, the skies are growing darker every day, blocking out the sun. Temperatures are plummeting. Winter is coming early. Along the way, Alex rescues two starving orphans whose mother was murdered by marauders. In her struggle to keep the children alive, Alex stumbles on a hidden cache of food only to discover it’s guarded by a man who’ll haunt her nightmares. Half guardian angel, half demon. Both barbarian and benefactor. A strange mixture of brutality and gentleness, cruelty and caring. A man named Wolf!
