Product Description

Product Description

Ragnarok was only the beginning.

Buried in Cheyenne Mountain, Colorado, is the massive Bunker One. Long conquered by the spawn of the xenovirus, it is now the mission of Alex Keener, Samuel Neth, and Makara Angel to find the fallen Bunker, or die trying. Contained within are the mysterious Black Files, which may be the key to stopping the xenovirus before it is too late.

But one thousand miles of post-apocalyptic desert stand between the team and their goal, and human hostiles and killer dust storms are the least of their worries. They must make it to Bunker One before the winter snows bury it...and before anyone else can claim the files as their own.

For growing in the south in the wake of the expanding Blights is the mysterious Empire, who will stop at nothing to secure the Bunkers' resources, technology, and information...and Bunker One is at the top of their list.

And in the Great Blight, the monsters get bigger. Much, much bigger.

More About the Author

The Wasteland Chronicles, my post-apocalyptic series, is set in the year 2060, thirty years after a meteor hits Earth. I've always enjoyed speculative fiction, preferably things that have dark themes. I have always believed people can find the hope to overcome their circumstances, whatever those might be. I try hard to weave those themes into my stories.

I was born in Lake Jackson, Texas, but now live in Oklahoma City. I graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 2010 with a Bachelors degree in Journalism. Since then, I've published several books independently, and have plans to publish many more.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a grower 30 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found the first book ok and didn't plan to read on...but, somehow, I found myself thinking about it. Book two is better, more action and the plot has developed at a fast rate. This is junk food writing, to be honest, but it's easy to digest and the characters are interesting enough , if sketchy. I could see this as a graphic novel. Great teen reading and good sci fi of the old fashioned kind. Worth a try and I can't help but want to know what happens next.....

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book 28 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was better than the 1st book. The story is more substantial and flows better. The characters feel real. There is still a couple of niggles like who is the old guy they meet on their travels? (prophet maybe?) I would like that to be resolved because it looks like he was just put in the story to have a reason why some of the characters did what they had to do later on. Still a good read though. Get it!
