The Perseid Collapse Series

2019. The United States is under attack. Six years after the Jakarta Pandemic killed twenty-eight million Americans, a new nightmare has been unleashed. In the blink of an eye, more than three hundred million Americans lose power, nine out ten cars are rendered useless and anything connected to the power grid is instantly destroyed. Most are blissfully asleep when it happens, unaware that their lives have been forever changed. In the wake of the attack, unlikely heroes will rise and inconceivable evils will emerge. The prepared will survive—the rest will be thrown at the mercy of an unforgiving aftermath. From the windswept steppes of western China to low-earth orbit aboard the International Space Station. From the rocky coast of Maine to the rubble strewn streets of a post-apocalyptic Boston. The Perseid Collapse World offers a nearly unlimited platform to explore the “survivor” in you.
