The world has descended into chaos.

A lethal super-virus has wiped out much of the population, toppling governments, religions, and most of society.

Stranded on a remote, faraway mission, Col. Noah Dresdon agonizes about what’s become of his family in Florida. Did his wife survive? The last time he talked to her, she was already sick.

What about his two daughters? When the plague began, they were in college on opposite ends of the state. But it’s been weeks. He’s heard nothing.

It’s not like Dresdon can just abandon his post to look for them. He’s stuck on a NASA space station 250 miles above the Earth.

But when a resupply mission to the station goes wrong and some of the crew contract the virus, Dresdon and a colleague commandeer the lone remaining shuttle in a desperate bid to get home.

The world they return to, however, barely resembles the one they knew before. Civilization has collapsed. Roving gangs—small private armies of heavily armed marauders—rule pockets of the country amid endless wars for food, weapons, and the few remaining resources.

Making it back to Earth was just the beginning. To find his family, Dresdon must navigate a reality turned upside-down while evading the bloodthirsty mobs who might kill him on sight.

Last Dawn: Apocalypse, author Richard C. Hale, creator of the fan-favorite Jaxon Jennings crime series, delivers the powerful first installment of a new sci-fi series that could be ripped from today’s headlines. The sun has almost set on humanity, Hale cautions us in his new, gripping tale, and mankind will have to fight like hell just to survive one more day.
