An ELECTRIFYING story of survival . . .
In THE BORROWED WORLD, Franklin Horton showed us an America brought to its knees by a nationwide terror attack. The target? The American infrastructure. Cell phone connections became sporadic. Electrical power began to fail. Fuel was unavailable, stranding travelers wherever their vehicles ran dry.
One of those stranded travelers, Jim Powell, and his group of coworkers were frantically trying to make their way home using the gear on their backs. It was a journey wracked with violent, deadly encounters and exhausting physical demands, pushing each of them to the brink of their abilities. Meanwhile, on the other side of Virginia, Jim’s family was facing their own struggle as desperate neighbors began to turn on each other with increasing brutality.
In the second book in this series, ASHES OF THE UNSPEAKABLE, we find Jim and his group still working to get home. While just a few days have passed since the initial attacks, the country is quickly descending into a desperate, chaotic landscape where nothing comes easy. Conflict becomes unavoidable as a growing number of people realize there are no boundaries in a world without law.
At home, Jim’s family is forced into seclusion as the local jail discharges its starving inmates, leading to the arrival of a new and extremely violent presence in their valley. This new arrival is intent on driving families from their homes and taking their possessions. As Jim fights to reach them, his wife Ellen struggles to keep their family safe while neighbors begin to disappear, and homes burn to the ground each night.
