Refuge Omnibus Edition Publisher's Summary

Refuge, New Hampshire, is a small town. The kind found on postcards. Their biggest concern is the rowdy summertime revelers making their way up from Massachusetts and New York. And with most of the town's residents in neighboring Ashland, for the Fourth of July fireworks show, Refuge is quieter than usual. That is, until the Baptist church's bell starts ringing - on its own.

The bell chimes faster and faster, reaching a frenetic pace, as though rung by the Devil himself. But the bell is just the beginning. The air shimmers. The night-time sky fills with a burning red aurora. The moon, previously a crescent, is now full. And just hours after dusk, the sun returns to the sky, revealing an endless desert where there was once a mountainous pine forest.

Led by ex-Army Ranger turned surrealist painter, Griffin Butler, Sheriff Rebecca Rule and her deputy, Helena Frost, the residents of Refuge must weather an ever changing onslaught of otherworldly dangers while trying to uncover how and why the landscape beyond town shifts every time the church bell tolls.

As a sequence of horrific events threaten to destroy the town, the residents must band together, search for answers and find a way to defend their homes, or Refuge will be lost.

Refuge is a serialized novel, co-authored by #1 Amazon.com horror author, Jeremy Bishop, and five other authors, including Amazon.com best sellers Kane Gilmour and David McAfee, USA Today best seller, Robert Swartwood, and newcomer Daniel Boucher. The novel was released in five parts, every two weeks beginning in late 2013, but it is now available as one complete novel. So listen for the individual parts or the whole completed novel. Either way, you're in for a creepy ride.

    Sam Lake awakens from an alcohol-induced stupor to find his town, Refuge, New Hampshire, is no longer on an Earth he recognizes. While he slept, the town shifted between universes, leaving behind loved ones, severing all contact with the world they knew and resulting in several deaths - including that of Sheriff Rebecca Rule. The new Sheriff, Helena Frost, and the recently deputized ex-Army Ranger, Griffin Butler, work to coordinate a response and figure out what's happening to their small town, but they need help.

    The town of Refuge has finally come to a safe place. Surrounded by a serene freshwater ocean, it seems the town has been given a reprieve from the terror it has experienced since the shifts began. The wounded are treated. Fractured psyches are mended. And the search for answers begins. But then, the town shifts again, and it is deposited in a world of massive scale, where trees tower like skyscrapers and the creatures flying overhead are the size of 747s.

    The surviving inhabitants of Refuge have been shifted between worlds, never knowing what would come next. When the bell rings out once more, and the town is deposited in a new dimension, they find themselves surrounded by the worst of all possible landscapes: Hell. And a very familiar one, at that. As Griffin and Frost work to safeguard the town's survivors from untold dangers yet to come, and solve the enigma of Renford Ellison's plan, the town is thrust into a world straight out of Griffin's nightmares - and his twisted, surreal paintings.
