It began on New Year’s Eve.The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsed—and more than half of the world’s population was decimated.Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magic rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max. Some of it is unimaginably evil, and it can lurk anywhere, around a corner, in fetid tunnels beneath the river—or in the ones you know and love the most. As word spreads that neither the immune nor the gifted are safe from the authorities who patrol the ravaged streets, and with nothing left to count on but each other, Lana and Max make their way out of a wrecked New York City. At the same time, other travelers are heading west too, into a new frontier. Chuck, a tech genius trying to hack his way through a world gone offline. Arlys, a journalist who has lost her audience but uses pen and paper to record the truth. Fred, her young colleague, possessed of burgeoning abilities and an optimism that seems out of place in this bleak landscape. And Rachel and Jonah, a resourceful doctor and a paramedic who fend off despair with their determination to keep a young mother and three infants in their care alive.In a world of survivors where every stranger encountered could be either a savage or a savior, none of them knows exactly where they are heading, or why. But a purpose awaits them that will shape their lives and the lives of all those who remain.The end has come. The beginning comes next.

4.5 Year One by Nora Roberts - My Thoughts
I absolutely loved it! I'd been dying to read it and was thrilled when it finally went on sale last week - for a day. I cannot justify $15.99 for a book. Not really. So I waited. This book had everything I love about post-apocalyptic type stories. It had characters that make you want to root fo...

I don't know how Nora Roberts does it! Man she can crank out one book after the other, from any genre she wants, and they are all good! & not just good-really good! Year One is no different! I thought the story was excellent and the audio performance was too. I'm glad she branched out into the post-...

4.5 Year One
Holy cow...I really enjoyed this. It was a total departure from what I'm used to from Nora Roberts (the In Death books included), but yet still felt like a Nora Roberts book. When the world is hit with a fast acting virus, nearly 80% of the world's population is eradicated. The other 20% are immun...

3.5 "Year One - Chronicles of the One #1" by Nora Roberts
Year one is sort of urban fantasy twist on "The Stand". It tracks the path of groups of survivors of "The Doom", a virus which kills anyone who is not immune. As billions die, some of the immune discover latent magical powers and find themselves drawn to The Dark or The Light. It's an easy to read...
