The ASHES OF THE UNKNOWN
He came home to a town in turmoil…
…and a brother he thought he’d lost forever.
But like an EMP strike, family ties wield immeasurable power.
Cody Banks destroyed his life before enlisting in the Marines. But tough decisions in America drained the military’s resources, leaving the country vulnerable to attack. When Cody’s detachment returns to a powerless country, he finds himself steeped in the blood of a brand new war. His enemies are swift, brutal, and at times, scattered, and to get to Burning Hollow, he must crawl through the middle of hell.
The battle for freedom is just beginning. With casualties mounting and parts of the holler in ruin, the tides of power shift once more, ushering in an unexpected horror: a vigilante. Who is righting the wrongs in Burning Hollow? Are they friend or foe? While Rowdy and Taylor race against time for answers, Kingston Bickmore comes unhinged. But his need for vengeance pales in comparison to the cartel. They’re relentless and cruel, and they want their drugs.
Who will defend Burning Hollow from its many enemies? Who are the armies surrounding Burning Hollow, which factions are good or bad, and can normal citizens tell the difference? If the town is to survive a vindictive father, a bloodthirsty cartel, a skilled vigilante, and an encroaching army, they must learn form a stronghold able to withstand asymmetric warfare and sabotage. But who will lead them, and will the town follow?
Will there even be an America left standing at the end of this war? Will an EMP strike and a collapsed society deliver a fatal blow to Burning Hollow? Or will its citizens dig in, protect their homesteads, and safeguard the community? With enemies everywhere, and a full-scale apocalypse on the horizon, will they have what it takes to survive? Would you?
