Summary

In this chilling novel by the author of the Domain of the Dead series, one man is on his own in a desperate struggle to survive the end of the world. 
 
Even though he knew something was coming, even though he tried to prepare his family, even though he had bought survival equipment and food stores—when it happened, he wasn’t ready. 
 
Now he is slowly starving to death in a desolated apocalyptic wilderness. He tries to find food and stay warm. He is hounded by his fear of being discovered and haunted by the loss of his family. As the sunless days grow colder and as he grows weaker, he is forced to risk more and more for less and less. To survive he must risk dying—or even worse—getting caught.
Available since: 01/20/2015.
Print length: 154 pages.
