An epidemic has devastated the world and America has gone to hell in a handcart … welcome to the post-apocalypse as you’ve never seen it before.
Forget your depressing dystopias, Abaddon Books brings you a trio of the most apocalyptic novels you’re likely to read in The Afterblight Chronicles: America, where the US turns from The Land of the Free into the Home of the Hunted.
From the white-knuckle ride of Simon Spurrier’s The Culled to the double-crossing intrigue of Rebecca Levene’s Kill or Cure and the ultra-violent man-punches-bear bloodshed of Al Ewing’s Death Got No Mercy, the world of the Afterblight Chronicles series is no place for the feint-hearted.
A breathtaking journey across a crippled continent, The Afterblight Chronicles omnibus breathing new life into the post-apocalyptic genre. In a world where the only kind of law comes down the barrel of a gun, the only guarantee is action-packed survival adventure.
About the Series
The world has been devastated by an epidemic. Although there are pockets of an attempted continuation of civilisation, the truth is that the world has gone to hell in a handcart. The reason for this is a disease that has wiped out most of the world’s population. It kills almost all those who are not of the blood group ‘O neg’. Those people who survive are untouched. Everyone else dies. Infrastructures have collapsed. Mobs run rampant. The only kind of law that exists is that imposed by the people with the biggest guns. In this chaotic world who can bring hope and order?
The Afterblight Chronicles bring together the best genre writers in a shared world full of action-packed surprises and terrifying images of a world gone to the dogs, in a series that refuses to wallow in dystopian despondency when there’s meals to catch and cannibals to ward off!
Abaddon Books recently struck a deal with Multistory Films to bring The Afterblight Chronicles title School’s Out by Scott Andrews to the big screen.
