The Survivors Book I: Summer

by V. L. Dreyer

A tale of love, hope, and humanity set against the backdrop of post-apocalyptic New Zealand.

“Ten years ago, a deadly plague ravaged humanity. There were seven billion souls on our planet; now, there’s just a handful. Our extinction event has come and gone, but a few of us did survive. We’re the lucky ones, born with a rare genetic adaptation that gave us immunity to the plague. But the intervening decade had been brutal and unforgiving; so many more of us died.

“I was eighteen years old when I watched my family die one by one. Now, I am alone. I’ve managed to eke out an existence amongst the ruins of our shattered world, but there is so much danger that it’s a miracle I’m still alive. I am a lone female in a world without rules; death stalks me at every turn.

“But I will not give up. I will not surrender. I am the last of my line, and I am determined to honour my family, even if I couldn’t save them.

“My name is Sandy McDermott, and I am a survivor.

“This is my story.”

When talented FBI agent Jodie Watts takes time away from work to visit her childhood home, nestled deep in the redwoods of Mountain City, California, she finds herself thrust into a terrific battle.

Gathering together the only people she knows she can trust, Jodie won’t be stopped until she unravels the truth behind this mind-blowing government conspiracy. Her tenacity, which served her well as an FBI agent, may reveal more than she wants to know, as she learns someone she has a special tie to is about to unleash a series of catastrophic events on the planet. Now, all that stands between the people of Earth and total annihilation is one FBI agent and her mismatched group of friends. Will Jodie succeed and save everyone and everything she holds dear?

The Soloist

by Matthew Phillion

Before she joined the Indestructibles, Kate Miller haunted the streets of her hometown, a hero trying to drive away the ghosts of her own losses and failures. Masked and alone against the dark elements of her city, Kate became known as the Dancer, the ballerina vigilante, fighting street-level crime and trying to make the world a better place, one fight at a time.

But when an early mistake leads her back to her roots, will Kate have the strength to fight on? And how will it help her become the hero she’ll someday become as part of the Indestructibles?

“The Soloist” is a story told in the “one-shot” style of old comics, a self-contained adventure from the Dancer’s early days. Find out how one night almost ended her career as a vigilante before it even began, and learn more about what drives the Dancer to keep fighting . . .
