This week I have a book to share that will come out towards the end of this year, but it is a Nora Roberts title, so I thought I share it already.
When the author made the announcement and published the cover a little while ago, I actually didn´t quite realize what this new trilogy´s plot would be about.
That came a bit later when I had time to let the summary kick in and when I noticed that I had, for whatever reasons, not really the chance to pre-order it yet; at least not from its original publisher.
Year One is the first in her new trilogy and the cover is soooo gorgeous! Not to mention the summary which sounds intriguing and thrilling like hell. And as an old NR fan, I for sure have to read this. Good, it seems very long until December, at the moment at least, but if the year goes on like it does right now, the release day will arrive very soon.
Year One will be published on December 5, 2017 by St. Martin´s Press (Hardcover).
It began on New Year´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 collapsed – and more than half of the world´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 river – 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 who remain. The end has come. The beginning comes next.
