"In 2009 Forstchen released ONE SECOND AFTER, a story of one man's struggle to save his family and his small North Carolina town after America is hit with a high altitude EMP that sends America back to the dark ages.
In 2015 ONE YEAR AFTER picks up one year after One Second After ends, two years since the nuclear weapons detonated above the United States brought America to its knees. After months of suffering starvation, war, and countless deaths,the survivors of Black Mountain, North Carolina, begin to recover some of the technology and supplies they had once taken for granted, like electricity, communications, and medicine.
In the highly-anticipated last chapter in THE DAY TRILOGY, the author returns us to Black Mountain,as the survivors face a dark world, filled with fear, hunger and hopelessness.
