Editorial Reviews

Review

“Civilization slides into the abyss of a new dark age in this horrifying apocalyptic novel. Forstchen has put Bin Laden's wet dream on paper and, in the process, taken civilization straight to the rack.” ―Stephen Coonts, New York Times bestselling author of The Art of War

“The only thing more terrifying than this masterfully crafted story is the possibility of it actually happening―and not a damn thing being done to protect us.” ―W.E.B. Griffin & William E. Butterworth IV

“Forstchen's work has flair and power.” ―Joel Rosenberg, author of The Sleeping Dragon

“Forstchen did such a damned fine job with One Second After that shortly after the first page, I had been reeled in hook, line, and sinker.” ―David Hagberg, New York Times bestselling author of Tower Down
