A stunning new novel from the #1 New York Times
bestselling authorâ€”an epic of hope and horror, chaos and
magic, and a journey that will unite a desperate group of
people to fight the battle of their livesâ€¦
It began on New Yearâ€™s Eve.
The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear
spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted
on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law
and government collapsedâ€”and more than half of the worldâ€™s
population was decimated.
Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the
power of science and technology receded, magic rose up in
its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by
Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares
with her lover, Max. Some of it is unimaginably evil, and it
can lurk anywhere, around a corner, in fetid tunnels beneath
the riverâ€”or in the ones you know and love the most.
As word spreads that neither the immune nor the gifted are
safe from the authorities who patrol the ravaged streets,
and with nothing left to count on but each other, Lana and
Max make their way out of a wrecked New York City. At the
same time, other travelers are heading west too, into a new
frontier. Chuck, a tech genius trying to hack his way
through a world gone offline. Arlys, a journalist who has
lost her audience but uses pen and paper to record the
truth. Fred, her young colleague, possessed of burgeoning
abilities and an optimism that seems out of place in this
bleak landscape. And Rachel and Jonah, a resourceful doctor
and a paramedic who fend off despair with their
determination to keep a young mother and three infants in
their care alive.
In a world of survivors where every stranger encountered
could be either a savage or a savior, none of them knows
exactly where they are heading, or why. But a purpose awaits
them that will shape their lives and the lives of all those
The end has come. The beginning comes next.

Re: Year One
Debbie, you did an excellent job of capturing what this
story is about. This is a different type of story for Nora
Roberts but I couldn't stop reading because it has a reality
to it. You did an excellent job with this review.
