Publisher Description

For rising young lawyer Cal Griffin, it’s just another day in the Big City—until the lights go off … for good. Suddenly packs of pale crouched figures are stalking the darkened subways, monsters prowl Times Square, and the people all around Cal are … changing. Similar weirdness is happening everywhere, from the dank, cold heart of a West Virginia coal mine to a remote lab in South Dakota—where a team of government scientists has unwittingly invited something catastrophic into the world—to the highest levels of power in Washington, DC. And Cal Griffin is not the only one struggling to comprehend the surreal, devouring chaos surrounding him—nor the only one who will be forced to accept a new role in this brave new world of nightmare and wonder. For the forces bled from the stilled machines are fueling a consciousness both newly born and ancient, and more than one unlikely hero will be needed for the titanic battle between the darkness and the light.

    " This was a suprisingly interesting post-apocolyptic book. I not only enjoyed it, but it has stuck in my mind since. I will have to see if the author has other books I might similarly enjoy. "

    " Fast moving, fun read...The Stand meets Alice in the Looking Glass? Or something in that vein. Yeah, I really liked this book. "

    " I liked the book fine. Doesn't really break out of the standard post-apo conventions--stayed engaging and entertaining. I thought the pay off for sticking with the very slow first 100 pages or so was a little weak. I'll probably read the other books in the series on a free weekend, though. "

    " This was originally intended to be a television series and I think they could have done great things with it visually. The first two books (this one as well as Angelfire) are amazing, unique stories and I love the characters. "
