“Like his idols Genghis Khan and Attila the Hun, he would sweep across the land like a plague, destroying everything in his way. The thought made him grin. Finally, he was fulfilling his destiny, preparing for the final battle that would decide who ruled the world – a battle he would not lose.”
In his third Day After Never novel, Russell Blake brings to a climax as evil brings its army to destroy. Magnus personally leads his evil warriors in an attempt to destroy resistance. Which is more important, a well defended position or overwhelming force, weaponry and manpower. This is a classic good versus evil story and you’ll have to read to see who triumphs. Even winning doesn’t resolve everything in these novels.
Purgatory Road is the second in the The Day After Never series by author Russell Blake. In it, our hero Lucas again faces overwhelming odds to save those closest to him while staying one step ahead of some very nasty people. In this dystopian novel, the world population has been devastated by a global pandemic. More than half the population have succumbed and a great many of those left have sunk to brutal levels to survive…generally at the expense of others. Lucas finds himself pushed to help the two who he saved find their promised land before they themselves were found.
The Day After Never by Russell Blake takes place in the Southwestern United States. America is torn apart by a pandemic flu that kills a large portion of the population. Anarchy rules in this Post-Apocalyptic Dystopian novel. Pockets of civilization dot the countryside barricaded against the lawless groups that roam; looking for easy prey.
“As with most black swan events, so named because they were unpredictable singularities, the combination of the super flu – regardless of whether brought to the U.S. by refugees, illegal immigrants, or returning servicemen – and an economic meltdown had never been envisioned. There were simply no scenarios for it, and when it happened, civilization had unraveled far faster than anyone would have believed.”
