BOOK BLURB: When Wynter Roth is turned out of New Earth, a self-contained doomsday cult on the American prairie, she emerges into a world poised on the brink of madness as a mysterious outbreak of rapid early onset dementia spreads across the nation.

As Wynter struggles to start over in a world she’s been taught to regard as evil, she finds herself face-to-face with the apocalypse she’s feared all her life—until the night her sister shows up at her doorstep with a set of medical samples. That night, Wynter learns there’s something far more sinister at play and that these samples are key to understanding the disease.

Now, as the power grid fails and the nation descends into chaos, Wynter must find a way to get the samples to a lab in Colorado. Uncertain who to trust, she takes up with former military man Chase Miller, who has his own reasons for wanting to get close to the samples in her possession, and to Wynter herself.

REVIEW: This author is creative and has a vivid imagination that has taken readers on amazing rides through time and characters that stay with you long after you’ve finished the story. This is the first installment of thought-provoking series that is told through main character Wynter Roth twenty-something eyes. The world around her has been affected by a crazy virus and the after math of an EMP black-out. This has the world turned upside down. People start breaking out in random acts of violence and appear to have the beginnings of dementia. She struggles to make sense of life, not only with all the drama (virus, violence, black-out) but with what she was told by the occult about the evil world around her. What to believe?

The story is told in current time with flashbacks of when Wynter was in an occult. This is a story I had a hard time connecting with at first. It starts out on a farm and then the author talks about pigs etc. But after I got a lay of the land and was introduced to Wynter Roth things were better. I was hooked.

It was excited to learn through Tosca’s news letter that she is in negotiations right now to adapt this story for a TV series. How exciting! This would definitely work for a lively book club meeting. There will be no shortage of things to talk about.
