Five friends. West L.A. The power goes out, and everything with it. Civilization as they know it has ended. And they are in the worst place they could be - surrounded by looter gangs and millions who will soon be desperate and dying. Young, fit, but ill prepared, their choices are few and stark. Jeremy's Run: L.A. Dark is the first installment of a serial story that chronicles an epic struggle of the human spirit to survive, to prevail over the odds, to retain one's humanity, and to keep alive the hope for a new and better future.
Thirty-six hours have elapsed since the power died and most everything with it. It has been said that society is ever nine meals from chaos. True, perhaps, were humans civilized. Though young and fit, Jeremy and his friends are much like people we know. They've made no preparations. Each possesses certain skills, but the only member of the group with some infantry experience, Kade de Silva, is recovering from a gunshot wound.
Jeremy, Kade, and Karina go to Kar's ex-boyfriend, Eddie, to trade for a decent weapon. Eddie won't trade, and Kade won't take no for an answer. In the meantime, Matt and Sarah, who venture out on their own, are abducted by an armed gang. When the others discover them missing, Kade sets off with Gooch to follow their trail, find them, and kill their captors.
In Book 4, The Prophet's Niece, Paula Ivanova is reunited with her uncle, Hiram Ezekiel Smith, the powerful and charismatic Prophet, Seer, and Revelator of a cult of his creation. He's been expecting her. Her friends think she's there to visit. True enough. Few acts are more intimate than murder.
