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?
