(The second book in the Warriors of the Apocalypse series)
A novel by Anthony Giangregorio
A Brave New World---- Survival is a perilous game a hundred years after the bombs fell, devastating the world and leaving behind death and destruction in its wake. But no matter what, mankind perseveres, and out of the ashes small towns still exist, ruled by barons with a taste for wealth and blood, while outside these small enclaves, slavers, marauders, and cannibals search for easy prey. ----Past Mistakes---- A century earlier, Hank Summers and his band of warrior survivalists became inadvertently trapped in an underground government bunker with little food and no hope of escape. With the only egress to the bunker sealed with a timer, one not to be opened for a hundred years, the four weary companions had no choice but to use the experimental hibernation chambers, in the hopes of remaining in stasis until the doors opened ten decades later. ----Blood and Death---- But nothing experimental is foolproof, and Hank ends up waking weeks earlier than the others. With no choice but to venture out into the world alone, to find food for himself and his soon-to-waking-friends, he quickly discovers that the world is just as cruel and barbaric as before he went into hibernation. With only his weapons and wits to survive, it's still possible Hank may not survive to return to the bunker and his waiting friends, as new enemies soon begin hunting him. Though the future may be deadlier than the past, it's all that remains.
