The Darkness After Publisher's Summary
The thrilling story of teenagers struggling for survival as the modern world collapses around them
Massive solar flares bombard the Earth. An intense electromagnetic pulse undermines America’s power grid, wreaking havoc. Panic and chaos ensue in cities like New Orleans, where 16-year-old Mitch Henley was stranded after driving his parents to the airport. The son of a game warden in a rural Mississippi county, Mitch is an expert hunter and woodsman and knows he can survive back on his family’s remote 600 acres. With no way to know if his parents’ plane landed safely or crashed because of the pulse, Mitch sets out alone to walk home.
But what Mitch hadn’t counted on was meeting April: a determined young woman who has an even more compelling reason to make it to her destination. Thrust into adulthood at an early age, April is a fighter who won’t back down, and when the two of them pair up to face the dangers ahead, they endure and overcome one setback and disappointment after another.
Set in the world of the author’s dystopian thriller, The Pulse, where anarchy and desperation reign, The Darkness After is a frightening look at how fragile our technologically dependent lifestyle really is.
