Product description

Product Description

Where would you go to survive a deadly pandemic?
An unstoppable virus. Humanity’s last stand has failed. In the aftermath of a devastating flu outbreak, what would you do to stay alive?

"Mad Max meets The Last Ship", "Terrifyingly realistic", "A perfect blend of science fiction, history and social commentary."

The UK survivors of a killer virus hide behind the high walls of a medieval fortress, struggling to rebuild in a world without electricity or government. Scraping a living far away from the smoking ruins of the cities, they wait in hope.

Hurst Castle stands alone. Its seventy-four occupants united in a struggle for survival against all the odds. The Millennial Virus is the least of their concerns. When the arrival of outsiders threatens to tip the balance of power, the people of Hurst are faced with a desperate choice: set aside their differences and join an alliance that promises new hope or unite against the newcomers and their plans for reconstruction. Who can be trusted? Only time will tell.

The battle for Hurst has begun.

If you enjoy fast-paced, post-apocalyptic stories such as The Passage, The Road, Station Eleven, The Stand, and The Atlantis Gene, you'll love The Hurst Chronicles series that weaves together history, science and social commentary in a dark, dystopian page-turner.

"An action-packed, disturbing and thought-provoking story of an all-too-possible dystopian future." - The Book Reviewers

"One of the most original and just flat out interesting and intelligently profound dystopian novels I’ve ever read." - Indie Book Reviewers


About the Author

Robin Crumby is an author and writer living in London with his wife and two children. Since reading John Wyndham's Day of the Triffids as a child, he became fascinated by end of the world dystopian literature. More recently, re-reading Cormac McCarthy's The Road and Emily St. John Mandel's Station Eleven inspired him to start writing. Why? Because post-apocalyptic fiction fires the imagination like nothing else. Pondering what comes next, who would survive, what would life look like? Much of the best fiction in this popular genre focuses on brain-eating zombies or events unfolding in the USA so Robin determined to write a story set in the UK. His Eureka moment came wandering the shingle beach at Milford-on-sea, inspired by the beauty and rich history of the Solent. Where better to survive the end of the world than a medieval castle surrounded by water? Robin spent much of his childhood messing about in boats, exploring the many waterways, ports and military forts of the Isle of Wight, where The Hurst Chronicles are set.
