To provide for her son, June would sacrifice anything. She would live in fear every day and shield her son from it. She would stay, tormented, to hang onto his inheritance.

This story was originally published as three novels: Madelyn's Nephew, Madelyn's Mistake, and Madelyn's Last Dance.
After the sun turned, Madelyn fled north to escape the riots and the encroaching glaciers. As long as the world was ending, she wanted to live her final days in the one place she had always been happy—her grandmother's cabin. She survived the Roamers, the scavengers, and the wildlife, but she can't escape her fear of dying alone.
From renowned horror author Ike Hamill, comes a sci-fi epic of a woman fighting a dying world. Join Madelyn as she fights for survival and prays for death.
She left behind this note:
Gather my bones, if you find them. If a bear hasn’t dragged them off, or a wolf cracked them for my marrow. My skull goes on the wall with the others. Any other remains can be planted near Sacrifice Rock. That’s where my grandfather is buried, and where I dug up the skull of my beloved grandmother.
Her sweet eyes were still wise and kind, even when I only imagined them from their hollow sockets. She taught us so many things—how to hunt, trap, and fish. She should have taught me how to live alone. I never learned the trick of scaring away the ghosts. They won’t shut up and leave me in peace. I guess it's time to join them.
Miles away, Brad battles the same blizzard. Alone, he attempts to survive as the snow envelops his home. When the storm breaks, he makes his way south to where the snow drifts end and the world lies empty.
Join Brad, Robby, and the other survivors as they fight to find the truth about the apocalypse and discover how to live in their new world.

This time, they’re battling their own desire, and fighting to stay alive, as individuals. They’re fighting to remain Distinct.
I tell the old man about what kept me awake when I was a kid. He doesn't laugh when I mention vampires.

It must be the heat. The old man is delusional. At least that's what I tell myself. Things are different in the middle of the night. When monsters come tapping, it's impossible to dismiss the idea that the Maine woods hold secrets--deadly secrets.
