"I'd give it more stars if I could...Characters well developed, plot intricately woven, and twists and turns at every corner!"
-Amazon top 50 reviewer


In a near future devastated by famine and disease, the United States balances on the cusp of collapse.

When terrorists hijack a lavish cruise ship, wealthy Amelia Black is forced into hiding with Gabriel Rivera, an enigmatic stranger with a dangerous secret. He's her only hope--if she can trust him.

Despite their overwhelming differences--and the killers hunting them--the pair must form an unlikely alliance to survive. As the lines between enemies and allies blur, they uncover a new catastrophic threat: a world-ending bioweapon hidden on the ship.

What starts out as a single, terrifying incident will soon evolve into a race to save mankind from an extinction-level event...

With hundreds of five-star reviews, thousands of sales, and millions of pages read, this explosive post-apocalyptic series features compelling characters, fast-paced dystopian action, and ripped-from-the-headlines twists.

*Rated PG-13 for mild language and moderate violence.*
