FOR EVERY END, THERE IS A BEGINNING
Growth must happen— so says Darwin, anyway. I’m Laura, and my Villagers and I continue to make our way through the decay of post-apocalyptic Coastal California during the nuclear winter and fallout of the Last War.
THE EARTH IS ENRAGED AND SEEKING REVENGE FOR OUR TRESPASSES—WITH LEFTOVER SURPRISES IN THE RUBBLE OF OUR CITY, DORMANCY CAN’T LAST FOREVER.
When the Plague runs murderously through the Village, and lives and psyches continue to be pushed to their limits, I’m faced with a gut wrenching decision. But are the Villagers ready to take the risk and leave this catastrophic reality for what could be a worse unknown? Should we follow the ambiguous motives of Colonel Jackson?
GROWTH IS HARD, BUT STAGNATION MEANS CERTAIN DEATH!
Following a global nuclear disaster which decimates what is left of Monterey, CA, a disparate band of survivors decides to set out for a new (and hopefully not as dangerously polluted with biochemicals) home. Their leadership, headed by Laura Patton Balous, comes together with a heretofore hidden band of military veterans to make their way out of the Monterey area to their goal, Carmel Valley, a journey of only 98 miles but one which takes months to accomplish. They fight nuclear winter and another enemy strike, as well as, troubles within the ranks as they struggle onward toward what each and every one of them hopes to be a better future.
The Beginning at the End of the World was every bit as enthralling as Monte Vista Village and I cannot wait to get my hands on the next installment of what happens as Laura and her fellow survivors face a new world.
