Editorial Reviews


 ★★★★ "Michelle Bryan's writing is brilliant, eloquent, and, at times, grotesque and downright disgusting- the perfect combination to create a novel about surviving the end of the world. With likable characters, uncertain futures, and a desire to know what happens next, the novel is easily finished in a day, and skipping work is highly recommended. With more books in the series, readers are sure not to be disappointed with Bix's journey."-Red City Review

★★★★★ " What a protagonist! Bixby is strong, resilient, and something out of this world, but still extremely relatable. The characters are gritty and raw, as they should be, and this just makes them that much more believable. The environment was ideal for the world she created. The novel was thrilling, satisfying, and made me beg for the sequel! Simply amazing."- Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite

About the Author

Michelle Bryan lives in Nova Scotia with her three favorite guys: her husband, her son, and her crazy fur baby. Besides her family, her other passions in life consist of chocolate, coffee, and writing. When not busy managing a chocolate store or spending the day at her computer, she can be found with her nose stuck in any sort of apocalypse book.

Marnye Young is a Yale MFA graduate; SAG-AFTRA voice, stage, and screen actor; and a member of the APA. She volunteers with TIC and CRIS, two nonprofits for the blind or visually impaired. A proud mom of identical twins, she is a fisherman, she grows some of her own food, listens to opera when she writes, and is an avid NASCAR fan.
