How did it start? A deadly virus from the Arctic. An international team of US, Russian, Chinese, and Korean scientist uncovered a prehistoric artifact frozen in the ice of the North. What they didn’t know is it carried a slumbering disease more fatal than the Medieval Black Plague.
Gideon Cole is the son of a US General stationed in San Francisco. Gideon is surprised when the first nuclear missile hits New York City, ushering in the Apocalypse. His Dad calls, telling him it’s time to head to a secret war bunker.
Along the way, as time is running out, they pick up Lynda Brodunvich and her father. Lynda was Gideon’s high school crush a decade ago.
Will they make it to the bunker in time, before the bombs drop? If the plague doesn’t wipe out humanity, will they destroy each other on apocalyptic scales? If they do, is this the end of the world? Or can two people begin mankind over again?
If you enjoy the dystopian genre, the end times, the last days theme, you’ll enjoy this book. With a Rise of the Machines, Terminator 3, style (without the evil robots), or Book of Eli, Armageddon theme, this author brings out a different aspect of what a nuclear holocaust could start. What if we could start the world over again? What would that be like?
Born in Oklahoma, raised in Eastern Europe, John Irvin now lives in Florida. He enjoys writing speculative fiction–fantasy, sci-fi, paranormal. In his life, he has visited at least 20 various countries of the world and considers this a blessing as it has helped shape his worldview. He enjoys spending time with friends and family, enjoying nature, and reading every book in his growing personal library.
“One of my lifetime goals,” John declares. “Is to build a personal library of at least 4,000 volumes.”
Having gained his Bachelor’s Degree in Humanities, John went on to work in several different fields before he realized, it was writing that did it for him. He’s been writing since 2004. Writing at least 10 books during high school, he never dreamed he’d be pursuing a full-time career as an author.
“I’d always imagined I’d be too busy for writing once college came along and life afterward,” John remarks. “But back in 2016, a friend asked what I wanted to be doing in five years. Did I want to slave away at some dead-end job?” He always smiles with his response, “I decided, No. I wanted to be a writer.”
Recently, John picked up his pen for Amazon Kindle and is pumping more ebooks as the months pass by.
