It didn't come because of man's
inhumanity to man. It didn't come from bombs, or plague, or even
from aliens descending from outer space. In fact, no one knows what
triggered it. And even if they did, there was no way to turn back
Only one thing was certain. One
evening the sun had grown unexpectedly bigger and hotter, and heat
and radiation unlike anything ever experienced washed over the
Earth, bathing it in searing rays that devoured over three-quarters
of the world's population.
Now the sun is smaller, and it
doesn't radiate as much heat as it used to. The world is colder.
Food is scarce, and people are fighting to stay alive.
Michael Tollson, aka "The Silent Wraith", was a man who roamed from
settlement to outpost to city, offering his protection from
scavengers and renegades. Years ago, right before the sun had
exploded, when he had been a boy growing up in a small Texas town,
he had felt his first crush for the little tomboy he knew as Jo.
Now, as a grown man, he has finally made his way back to his boyhood
home to see if Jo is still alive, or if she has been a victim of the
Apocalypse. He has to know if the dreams and memories he has
harbored were mere fantasies, or if the infatuation he'd felt then
has grown into something else, something stronger and more tangible.
JoBeth Wythe was a member of The
Triad, three leaders who protected their little settlement, and
tried to recall the carefree days before the Apocalypse. All they
wanted was the chance at a decent life, with enough food, some
shared warmth, and a little hope for the future. She had never
forgotten the pudgy little kid who had followed her around when she
was growing up, the little boy she called Mikey. Every time she
thought of him, it only brought back pain and a wistfulness for a
past that no longer existed.
For Drew and Jo, it was only a
matter of time before they would be reunited to fight together. To
survive together. And to discover that the innocent kisses they had
shared as children had grown into a love that would overwhelm them
Warning! Contains permanent extreme cold, love
everlasting, survivalists, separation, a legend in the making, a
