Writing as Ellen Connor, Ann Aguirre and Carrie Lofty join forces to create a chilling, post-apocalyptic series, Dark Age Dawning. Frighteningly intense in its depiction of the struggle to survive in a world run amok, there’s edge-of-your-seat thrills mingled with supernatural forces, giving rise to a dangerous and passionate story.
Jenna Barclay never believed the dire warnings her late father espoused about the technological world ending. But now power grids have fallen in Europe and back east, though in Oregon they still have their technology. Then Jenna is abducted by ex-Marine John Mason, who claims to owe his life to her father. Mason knows that magical change is about to hit, so he takes Jenna into the wilderness to survive. Attacks by mutant dogs indicate something has gone wrong with nature. When five strangers, including two children, appear, desperately fleeing the bloodthirsty packs, their small band must make a dangerous journey to find supplies and shelter. Surviving in this dark new age may force changes on them all. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Jun., 336 pp., $15.00)
