Dystopian Apocalyptic Fantasy Sci-fi
the BURNT SUNSET
a young adult book series
In my dreams, the sky fills with lightning, shocking the earth, spreading a living flame as the light of day fades. Ash swirls at my feet while I walk upon the skulls of the fallen. But I am not alone. Six more trek with me into certain peril.
The seas crest and the ground opens up. From the cracks emerge the warped remnants of humankind. Their flesh peels and boils, exploding into a mess of black phlegm and blood. But they are the lucky ones.
Most will burn. Many will decay in the daze virus. And only a few will evolve.
This is my past, present, and future. And today my doom is upon me.
