Book Description

When Daniel Miller wakes up one morning, something has gone terribly wrong. The power is out. The phones are dead. The house is silent. The street is shrouded in fog. Both his partner and their adopted daughter are missing. So are their neighbors. And so is everyone else in the world. Daniel Miller is the last person left on Earth... or is he?

From award-winning, best-selling horror writer Brian Keene comes this quiet, chilling, supernatural short tale (15,000 words).

5.0 out of 5 stars Alone January 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been a huge fan of Brian's since first finding a used copy of The Rising in a local book store. This was another great story written by one of today's best!
A man wakes up and discovers that he is all alone. What happened to his family and neighbors? What is the mysterious fog that surrounds the neighborhood? You will have to give this a read to find the answer to those questions.
Highly recommend this title!!

This is written very well. Just because a book is predictable doesn't mean it can't be good. Long time fan of Keene.

I have become a big fan of Brian Keene after picking up a used copy of The Castaways. For me he is right up top as A horror writer. Enjoyed this one, but sorry Brian, it was easy to guess where Dan was. Keep writing!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable little tale December 25, 2012

As an as avid Brian Keene fan I've come to expect great stories from someone I consider a master of horror. However, I felt this story was lacking the same punch a usual Keene story has. Hard to put it into words because it's a good story but I guess I just expected more.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's barely ok !
Without spoiling the ending, I can't say why I didn't love it. Which is a first for me and Brian Keene. I'd rate it 2 1/2 stars.

I thought it was an actual book, but, just truned out to be a short story:( And it was a near recreation of the movie The Sixth Sense.
