Description

For fans of The Wanderers by Chuck Wendig comes an apocalypse story like no other. Seven strangers wake to find they are the only humans left alive. But they are not alone. From a teenage delinquent to an MIT scientist, seven strangers with little in common wake one morning outside of Boston to discover they are the last humans alive. First they slowly find their way together across a wildly overgrown Massachusetts, tangling with packs of wild pigs and coywolves, with little food or information. As they try to build a new community with limited resources, all the while wondering how they slept through the end of the world, they begin to feel that something is stalking them... AUTHOR: Gene Doucette is the author of the best-selling The Spaceship Next Door, as well as the Immortal novel series and the sci-fi thriller Fixer. He is also an award-winning screenwriter and playwright.

Review quote

PRAISE FOR THE APOCALYPSE SEVEN "Doucette's 'seven' aren't just 'magnificent'--they're also entertaining as hell."
--Scott Sigler, New York Times bestselling author of the Infected Trilogy "The adventure I've been looking for! Never once did I know what to expect, and I loved being proved wrong at every turn. Far more mind-bending than a book this fun has any right to be."
--Zack Jordan, author of The Last Human "Doucette is ultimately able to do something new with a familiar genre, and do it astoundingly well."
--Booklist, Starred Review "[A] riveting postapocalyptic outing... Doucette's vibrant prose and unique premise make for an enticing adventure."
--Publishers Weekly "Speculative fiction ranges from straightforward to bewildering, and Doucette covers the whole arc here...A cinematic, speculative exercise."
--Kirkus Reviews PRAISE FOR SPACESHIP NEXT DOOR An Amazon "Best Book of the Month" "A fun and heartwarming send-up of classic science fiction."
--The Washington Post "Doucette delights with this wonderful example of speculative fiction...[and] writes winning characters who read like real people, and Sorrow Falls is similarly credible. The head-spinning ideas both power the narrative and invite the reader to think hard, while plenty of humor and action move the plot along. This excellent work will appeal to readers from middle school through adulthood."
--Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW "Doucette's genial, leisurely novel feels like a throwback to the squeaky clean science fiction of the mid-20th century... the town is vividly realized and described...[and] Doucette's dry sense of humor and obvious affection for his characters go a long way... a warmhearted ode to a simpler time and place in a community so small that everybody knows everybody else's business."
--Kirkus "An enormously enjoyable first contact story you won't forget from a talented new voice in sci-fi!"
--A.G Riddle, best-selling author of The Atlantis Gene and Pandemic
