The same flames that consume the chaff will purify the silver.
Unlike many of the people in their compound, Shane, Julianna, and Cole are still alive. However, their trial by fire is far from over.
The replacement currency has failed and America is crumbling from within. Roving gangs scour the country, preying on small towns which are too weak and unprepared to fend off their carnivorous attacks.
When one such band of ruffians shows up in Sylva, NC, Shane and Julianna will have to strike a decisive blow before they are subjugated into slavery.
A spark has found a bed of tinder. The inferno of chaos may never stop burning.
If they are successful in their campaign against the lawless criminal biker gang, the next challenge will be taking on the IMF’s special commission, which is tasked with selling off all of the country’s assets in what amounts to a national bankruptcy. Profiteers swoop in like vultures ready to harvest the still-beating heart of America. With carte-blanche privileges, the pillagers make their own laws, take what they want, and force US citizens to carry out the abominable work of draining America dry of all her resources.
Will this blaze of destruction thaw Julianna’s frigid heart?
No matter how hard he tries to push it out of his mind, Shane can’t stop wondering what it would be like to hold Julianna in his arms. She has warmed somewhat, but still keeps him at arms’ length. Yet, the more he allows himself to dream about the family which could be, the more distracted he becomes from the mission at hand. If he fails to keep Julianna, Cole, and himself alive, nothing else will matter anyway.
Don’t miss the heart-stopping conclusion to the Black Swan trilogy. Read Gehenna today!
