- Chronicles of The One, Book 1
- By: Nora Roberts
- Narrated by: Julia Whelan
- Length: 12 hrs and 20 mins
It began on New Year's Eve. The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsed - and more than half of the world's population was decimated. Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magic rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max.
Ahhhh finally! A book that hooked me!!!

A fresh start creating a new beginning
Best-selling author Nora Roberts’s new post-apocalyptic dystopian fantasy novel is a departure from the romantic fiction for which she’s known (or the suspense of her alter ego J.D. Robb), but it showcases the masterful storytelling that fans know and love while embracing the kind of world-building called for in this genre. Julia Whelan’s nuanced narration captures Roberts’s wide swath of characters and their authentic relationships. When the earth succumbs to a new plague, otherworldly powers manifest and human traits come in both life-affirming and monstrous ways in the first of a promising series.
