When a viral apocalypse kills 97% percent of the people on the planet, the survivor's humanity is hanging by a thread. Amid the leftovers of civilization, ex-Army Ranger Jason Larsen is reminded of the meaning of hope, family and loyalty by a dog and a young boy who are as alone as he is. The survivors he seems to collect become family, and that is very bad news for those who think they run the apocalypse. This is the first book in a new series from the author of the Eden Chronicle's "A Bright Shore", "Come and Take it", and "New Shores." The author is a former CIA operations officer who has decided that his lifelong love of writing is more fun than "real" work. "Finally an author that doesn't pull punches..."
