Product Description

"Always surprises and always entertains." - Jonathan Maberry, PATIENT ZERO


When massive solar flares wipe out the technological infrastructure and kills billions, Rachel Wheeler sets out across the Appalachian Mountain wilderness in search of her notorious grandfather’s survival compound.

Rachel is separated from her traveling companions and is captured by Zapheads, violent mutants who are gathering in packs and collecting dead bodies while mimicking human behaviors. Then she undergoes startling changes herself, as her friends are hunted by a rogue military platoon that wants to impose its own law and order in the world of After.

Can Rachel and her fellow survivors make the dangerous journey to Milepost 291 and evade the Zapheads long enough to form a new society and preserve the human race?

Look for the other After books, First Light (After #0), The Shock (After #1) and the Echo (After #2). Whiteout (After #4) is available for preorder on Amazon. Also look for the spinoff series ZAPHEADS: BONE AND CINDER, written with Joshua Simcox.

Scott Nicholson is the international bestseller author of more than 20 thrillers, including THE RED CHURCH, LIQUID FEAR, SPEED DATING WITH THE DEAD, McFALL, and the SOLOM series. His website is

I can't wait for the next book to come out. I hope the author is not planning to end this series anytime soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars AFTER is a great series... 23 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A huge solar flare storm has literally fried Earth; it's technology and most of it's people. Leaving a group of survivors battling zapheads and other dangers on their way to Wheelerville - Milepost 291.

In book #3 the "nature" of the zapheads seems to be changing and so is Rachel.

This is quickly becoming one of my fave post-apocalyptic series. Cannot wait for After 4: Whiteout.
