The fate of humanity rests in the hands of a child
The Order, a mysterious and powerful organization, has infiltrated the U.S. government at the highest levels, bent on remaking humanity in its image. Deep in their underground genetics facility, they've created a new race of enhanced humans, among other deadly creations.
As an infant, Erica escaped the facility, but will she ever be able to escape her fate? In hiding for over 15 years, she's been hunted. Her desire, to live free and in peace.
Now the world has changed. A viral outbreak manufactured by The Order, human apex predators roam freely, humanity has bound together in pockets of resistance. The children of The Order have turned on their masters in a race for supremacy; spread out across the country, systematically taking over key military installations.
Though not entirely human, Erica may hold the key to humanity's survival. Will she run, as she always has? Will she stand, one against many and risk losing all she holds dear – Her freedom, her family, her very existence?
Into Armageddon is the beginning of a dystopian post-apocalyptic world, includes elements of Military Fiction, Science Fiction, hard science, and genetic engineering, but reads like an action/ adventure and romance all wrapped up into one pulse-pounding novel that you won’t want to put down. It’s the first book in the Ruler of Ashes series.
