Rachel Parker in Into the End can IDENTIFY fear, she can DEFINE it, but she doesn’t feel it. Not anymore. Not since the tests.
Her inability to feel fear may be the reason why the rest of America is screaming in terror.
America’s end is near.
No one knows why, but the great country is under attack.
After being weakened by countless natural disasters, America opens its airspace for aid. But instead, what is left of the devastated west coast finds itself nearly obliterated from above. The key may belong to tests designed by a Pacific Northwest psychologist, Rachel Parker.
Rachel loses the love of her life in a house fire as they escape with their children to the nearby Rocky Mountains following the first round of air raids. In refuge, she faces her husband’s best friend, Joshua, but doesn’t want to face his ill-harbored feelings or her own inability to face fear.
Her sister, Brenda, escapes the fallen city, and, mistaken for Rachel, is captured. Terrified and alone, Brenda is protected by the enigmatic Daniel even while he helps keep her captive. Through torture and mind games, Brenda discovers information about her sister’s work that could spin the free world into a tumultuous frenzy where the unknown is safer than reality.

We live in a time where pretty much anything is possible. War. Famine. Natural disasters. It surrounds us and is a fear that seems to always be present. The government has colors for it, code red & yellow. Before 9-11 I think a lot of Americans thought the US was invincible. We found out the hard way that wasn’t true. Into the End is a story completely based in fact. First natural disasters hit. Then silent and stealth attacks begin by an unknown enemy. People are losing loved ones left and right. Specific people seem to be targets and no one knows why. I really thought that this would be a hard book to read, but I found myself immersed in this book. I stayed up way to late reading it. It’s written so three dimensionally and the characters are so relatable. This is dystopian/ apocalyptic fiction at its best. I’m itching to read the next book. Keep your eye out, I’ll be reviewing the second book on my book blog later this month. Read this series!
Through The Flames – Book #2
Allies = All Lies
America is burning. The unknown blinds the citizens from fighting.
Dr. Rachel Parker’s worst psychological designs are loosed on America by an unknown enemy. She leaves the safety of the mountains for the destruction of town to face her co-designer, Daniel, whose role is blurred by the smoke of deception. Captured by militia, Rachel has to find the answers she’s seeking. She’s not prepared to look within her own damaged mind for the solutions. Rachel’s frame of sanity and emotional stability lay on the line parallel to the country’s circumstances.
Brenda Krous, Rachel’s sister, possesses information that could change the face of the war. Sacrifices to get there become more and more personal until the “Brenda” she was and the “Brenda” she is becoming hit a crossroads. If she finds the compassion to help her sister, her patriotism to the nation might be sacrificed.
