A sudden epidemic of natural disasters is claiming hundreds of human lives at a time and gives some people cause to ask heretical questions that others refuse to hear.
An unlikely group of characters from conflicting ideologies find themselves on the same path to restoring the balance of Nature in the middle of growing apocalyptic devastation: Malaya, a strange street girl with mysterious friends; Krysta who has an empathetic link with Nature; Malachi, an Agent of The Hereafter lured from his training by Krysta's convictions; Agent John, a militant Agent of the Hereafter who believes in little more than doing his job; Terry, a detective sick to the soul of feeling like a pawn in other people's games and Kaylamarr Cromwell, a man hell bent on restoring the threat of divine retribution to people’s lives.
The Hereafter is a fictional exploration of two questions intertwined:
What would life be like if technology could guarantee us an afterlife?
Will Nature ever allow humankind to outgrow Her or are we and will we always be a part of her over which she has ultimate control?
