Jeremy teams up with his wife Hilaree for her debut novel in this intriguing sci-fi epic.
We get thrown into the mystery fairly quickly, with the event that sets up the rest of the tale happening within the first few pages – all of a sudden, every human on the planet except two are turned to dust at once. Why were these two spared? Can they find each other? How do they survive in a world where they are suddenly the last two humans on the planet?
The first half of the book goes into detail about what the world is like now and the difficulties the survivors face. The second half then answers the lingering questions.
Overall a truly great tale, and an impressive debut for Hilaree!
