Apocalypse: Year Zero

(2012)
An omnibus of novels by

 
 
-- Four end-of-the-world novellas by four award-winning dark fantasy authors ---

* A cynical New York commodities broker on the eve of her wedding
* A British advertising executive on vacation with her husband in Thailand
* A troubled New Orleans pharmacy student caretaking her even more troubled little sister
* A Hollywood D-Girl cracking under the strain of her surreal life

Each of these very different women finds herself in the middle of an apocalyptic disaster: the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center, the tsunami in Thailand, Hurricane Katrina, and Southern California's dreaded "Big One." Each survives the ordeal with great personal loss: the death of loved ones, disfigurement, mental collapse. But each also finds herself in sudden possession of mysterious powers of Fire, Water, Air and Earth.

As the women are inexorably drawn together, their powers increase, but they quickly realize those powers can be used for evil as well as for good.

And with the signs of a coming Armageddon building around them, the women start to wonder...

What if the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse aren't men at all?
