**Black Autumn is a survival/military thriller, Book One of the Black Autumn Series. The five books of the Black Autumn Series occur during the same seventeen days of the collapse of America and can be read in any order: The Last Air Force One, Black Autumn: Travelers, Fragments of America,and Black Autumn: Conquistadors.** The series is continued into winter with White Wasteland, Honor Road, America Invaded and President Partisan.
To survive long enough to reach their save haven.
During the first seventeen days of the collapse of America, three men travel through the mounting destruction, seeking asylum in the Rocky Mountains, but finding instead the nucleus of who they are as men.
A jaded special operations soldier, a self-doubting family man, and a once-pampered teenager make their way from three corners of the country toward a survival compound in the state of Utah, but they must first pass through a land of chaos and death ― a land that will no longer allow them to hide behind post-modern artifice.
With society on-the-ropes and Mother Nature on-the-rise, these three men must either re-invent themselves in a condition of honesty and savagery, or perish with the rest of Western Civilization.
Black Autumn Travelers is Book 2 of the Black Autumn series. Honor Road is the DIRECT sequel to Travelers, following the same characters--Mat, Sage and Cameron--and continuing their journeys into perilous winter. Readers may also wish to continue reading the Black Autumn series in published order, which groups the Black Autumn books in the same seventeen days of the Black Autumn collapse, then continues into the winter months with White Wasteland, Honor Road, America Invaded and President Partisan. Apologies for any confusion, but the series can be read in two ways: the black books of Black Autumn (seventeen days of the crash, across five books) OR as direct sequels following the characters. The direct sequel to Travelers, again, is Honor Road.
Conquistadors is Book 3 of the Black Autumn series, which chronicles the first seventeen days of the Black Autumn crash. The DIRECT SEQUEL to Conquistadors follows the characters--Noah and Billy--into America Invaded during the two months of perilous winter. Apologies for any confusion. These books can be read in two ways: following the timeline (black books first and then the white books, the published order) OR following the characters. Again, the direct sequel to Conquistadors is America Invaded if you prefer to follow the characters instead of the timeline.
December descends on a broken nation, and the Homestead survival clan trembles beneath a tide of human suffering crashing at the gates of their mountain refuge. A fanatical warlord arises and drives the Mormons* of the Rocky Mountains toward civil war.
While threats surge around the Homestead, Special Forces veterans and civilian fighters face a moral collapse at home, as the founder of the community struggles with personal demons, and a secretive group of women follow their hearts into uncharted waters. Strange visions, precarious faith and troubled dreams gnaw at the Homestead’s survival. Is their salvation hiding in the dim corners of their nightmares?
White Wasteland continues the saga of Black Autumn, Book One of the Black Autumn series.
*neither of the authors is a practicing Mormon--nor will they ever be--but a story about the apocalypse in the Rocky Mountains would be incomplete without the region's, strange, major religion. If reading fiction with Mormons causes you to break out in hives, this is not the book for you. If you're scratching your head as to why people would care, read the one-star reviews. It surprised us too.
President Nathaniel “Dutch” McAdams and his family are swept away on Air Force One when a Black Swan event cripples the rattled American economy. Meant to be a safe-haven, he soon finds the violence in the air just as savage as the chaos on the ground.
Dutch is running out of time, and he must choose between his own child or the fate of millions of Americans; most of whom are woefully unprepared and running blind in mass hysteria.
The Last Air Force One takes place in the same seventeen days as the Black Autumn series (black books). The DIRECT SEQUEL to The Last Air Force One is President Partisan. You may read the series in two orders--whichever you prefer: the published order (black books are the first 17 days of the collapse, the white books are the winter after the collapse) OR following the characters. The McAdams family story continues into winter with President Partisan.
As winter blocks the mountain passes during the Black Autumn apocalypse, the conquering forces of the Mexican drug cartel occupy and enslave the population of Flagstaff, Arizona. Ex-mercenary, Green Beret, Bill McCallister plays the shrewd kingmaker while his adopted son, Noah Miller, fights and bleeds for the American partisans, opposite his own father. The ties between father and son strain to the breaking point as ever more powerful weapons find their way onto the desert battlefields of armageddon: Abrams tanks, A-10 Warthog jets, and finally a tactical nuclear warhead.
When convictions collide, can the love of a father and a son withstand the maelstrom of war?
