“The truth was that the fall of humankind had been nothing like the boy had been told it would be, and in some peculiar, yet uniquely teenage way, he felt as if he had been cheated. His generation had been conditioned from birth to always presume the fantastic, to always expect the astonishing, but the fact was that Armageddon had not come with a brilliant flash, or the blockbuster finale that he, and so many others had expected. The machines had not taken over. There had been no zombie outbreak, no hostile alien invasion. There had been no global thermonuclear war, no doomsday meteor, no Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. In reality, the final days had been nothing like Hollywood had promised him it would be, and as the boy looked over at the burned out homes, and the piles of garbage that would hopefully contain his next meal, he knew firsthand that the end of the world had been anything but spectacular.”
An excerpt from DARK TOMORROW.
When a deadly plague decimates the Earth’s population, 16-year-old Sawyer Bradshaw finds himself both immune, and alone, in a world that has descended into violent chaos. Armed with only his estranged father’s shotgun, and an unrelenting desire to stay alive, Sawyer discovers that he not only has an uncanny knack for cheating death, but also for taking lives. Nevertheless, it is not long before he meets his match in a fierce and cunning teenage girl named Sara, and by her side he emerges as more than just a natural-born killer, but also as a leader among men. Still, in time they find themselves caught up in a series of twisted struggles for power and survival, and they soon come to realize that love, betrayal, and death, tend to walk hand in hand.
DARK TOMORROW is a startlingly realistic, post-apocalyptic thriller that will appeal to a wide range of both young adult and adult readers.
