An unlikely group of survivors on the run.  An impossible decision for a dying President.  An AI God about to get the most awesome power…

Nothing comes easy in this sixth installment of The Last War series. Nick and Bailey are alone, Marcus is MIA and the President hangs on the bitter edge of life and death at the hands of a traitor. Meanwhile, while hundreds of thousands of souls are perishing, the Silver Queen is enacting a most diabolical plan.

Rich with character development, heavy on the action and packed with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing long into the night, The Barbarous Road proves no one is safe, and not everyone survives the fall of mankind to the machines...



Instantly absorbing and frighteningly realistic! Five stars just isn’t enough! Totally captivating cast of characters dealing with an all too possible nightmare scenario. The story displays in graphic detail both the very best of human reactions to an unthinkable tragedy and the depraved depths to which some will fall victim in such a situation. Nonstop action and riveting drama kept me reading from start to finish. Highly recommended as a dire warning of future scientific possibilities, and the devastating impact on our fragile civilization.”

Absolutely 5+ stars! Amazing books, loved the character building. Indigo was my favorite, then Rider, Rex was damaged but came through a hero. Elizabeth a miracle. Thanks for writing such an engrossing story. Lost some sleep, well worth it.”
