When the apocalypse comes knocking, don’t be afraid to slam the door in its face.
Unusual storms are becoming so frequent that they no longer count as unusual. James Black, a young man living in the Midwest, watches as the storms grow to titanic proportions and evacuations begin. Every city within hundreds of miles starts to flood and the real fight for survival begins. Panic becomes widespread, the government loses its grip, and the evacuations are called off. Individuals who are desperate to control their own fate begin to emerge and the scavengers are born. The remaining populace becomes a danger to itself as the last bits of law and order are stripped away.
James does what any strong, intelligent, and unattached man would do...He hides.
The road to safety is treacherous at best, so James bides his time while planning for the future. All of his plans blow up in his face when he helps a young woman named Emma. She is smart, beautiful, and witty. She changes everything.
The world may never again be the place that it once was, but people will never change. The good, the bad, and the somewhere in between will always be a factor. James learns about himself, and the people around him, while discovering what it truly takes to survive.
