THE CATALYST SERIES


THIS IS HOW THE WORLD ENDS

An ordinary man helplessly watches the world around him begin to crumble after a massive solar flare cripples most of the world’s power grids and electrical devices with catastrophic consequences. While the thin veneer of normalcy stubbornly shrouds the coming collapse, Scott Montgomery realizes the truth; not just about the extent of the damage done to the world’s infrastructure, but also about the drastic plans a shadow government has for recovery

Few of us stop to realize how dependent we are on electrical power for every aspect of our lives. While a power outage is normally just an inconvenience, what happens when the power stays off?

Most of us trust our leaders and our government to have a plan for dealing with catastrophe, but as we have seen from large-scale disasters like Hurricane Katrina, that trust may be misplaced. What will happen if the disaster is on a truly global scale? The simple logistics of rendering aid will make it nearly hopeless.

A DYSTOPIAN THRILL RIDE!
