Description

Undergrounders have risen from the belly of the planet to wreak havoc on humanity. They hunt in darkness, dragging bodies into tunnels teeming with primitive life. Elise is a widowed mother trying to keep her daughters alive, but bloody battles with beasties define survival road. Even when Elise finds Jason - a strong, capable man - she feels no safer, no more confident that her babies will see a tomorrow. Barely staying alive becomes the norm. Against all odds, Elise and her group reach a sanctuary. Yet there is no rest for the weary. Doctors O'Toole and Peters have been experimenting on the humanoid monsters... but they aren't interested in saving humanity. Elise assists them reluctantly, all the while working secretly with Nick and Jamie to return the world to what it once was- Before the undergrounders came out to play on the surface.show more

About Eli Constant

Eli Constant is a genre-jumping detail junkie, obsessed with the nature of humanity. She believes that there's beauty at the core of most everything, but that truly unredeemable characters create the best stories. Eli is the author of "Dead Trees," "Mastic," "DRAG.N" and is a contributor to the charity anthology "Let's Scare Cancer to Death," benefitting the V Foundation. *** Eli lives in Virginia with her husband and two daughters. She is surrounded by battlefield country, farmland and lakes. Currently, she spends her days being a devoted mother and, of course, writing. Eli feels fortunate that her marriage is one of real love and she thinks her children are the coolest people in the world. She also feels so lucky to have an extended family that is ever present with encouragement and kind words. Eli completed coursework at USC-L, Columbia College, TAMU-CC, and George Mason University. She enjoyed a varied course load, but finally settled on Biology and focused on a career in lab research. She spent time in Texas volunteering at Flour Bluff Shrimp Mariculture Lab [and being paid in Pink Hawaiian Shrimp- which was, in a word, delicious.] and also spent time at NIH participating in an Animal Research Program in the Infectious Disease Dept. It took two years working in Histology/Pathology in Sterling, VA for Eli to realize she wanted to be a writer. She is still very interested in the sciences and hopes to use her background knowledge effectively within her writing. When it comes to her writing, Eli has one ultimate goal: to become better with each word written. She is obsessed with the nature of humanity- the innocent, the corrupted and the confused. She's always been a great lover of Science Fiction, but has also grown to truly appreciate other genres, especially Horror and Fantasy. Her other interests include art with a focus on charcoal medium, walking her American Foxhound Dottie, eating egg-drop, wonton soup from the local delivery place and watching low-budget Sci-Fi movies with her awesome family. www.eliconstant.com - Twitter @Author_EliC Facebook: https: //www.facebook.com/authorEliConstant Books on Amazon: http: //amzn.to/1leEDEo Goodreads: https: //www.goodreads.com/author/show/6901568.Eli_Constant Wordpress: http: //authoreliconstant.wordpress.com/show more
