Overview

THE APOCALYPSE: A chimera devastates the human population. Technology fails and infrastructure crumbles. Civilization collapses. AFTER: A generation apart, two women and the men who love them make incredible sacrifices to survive, and to destroy a brutal system of sexual slavery in a world where men outnumber women ten-to-one. After two years roaming the devastated South alone, eighteen-year-old Eva is captured and held prisoner by the few surviving soldiers at a military base, who haven't seen a woman since The Dying. In Eva, Major Smith sees only the future of the human race, and he'll exceed all moral boundaries to ensure she gives birth to the next generation. But Eva and John--the man she is paired with--are determined to fight for freedom and a better future. Two decades later, on the other side of the country, a Resistance woman is captured and brutally punished for subverting the Sex Laws. When she flees to the Resistance, Nix must decide if the man who helped her escape can be trusted, or if he's a spy using her to infiltrate the counter-slavery movement. As Nix makes her way east, her story twines with Eva's in a way neither woman could have imagined.

Editorial Reviews

Witchgiggles Reviewer
After is not a book which can be read in one sitting. It is a complicated study of men and women at both their best and worst--when choice has been stripped away and then alternate options discovered. I found it both dark and desperate twined round hopeful and optimistic with a dash of wit and humor sprinkled along to leaven it. The people and situations at times are so real that I clenched my teeth in anger, wiped my eyes in sorrow and simply shook my head in resignation ...
Dianna Reviewer
(O)ne of the most interesting books I have read in a long, long time. It takes place sometime in the future after the death of most of the world?s population. I kept wondering what would happen next. Would it all work out for the best or would the worse happen? This book is definitely worth the time to sit down and read it.

    Amazing

    Well written, engaging story with complex characters making difficult decisions under extraodinary circumstances. Scary, sexy, enraging and sad all rolled into one multilayerd, multi demensional tale. Wonderful read for those who are not faint hearted.

    Wonderful, heart-rending book!

    This is one of the best books I have ever read. I read really a lot, from classics, to paranormal romance, to SF, to erotica, and this is hands down one of my favorite books of all time. I laughed at parts, balled my eyes out at many others, and became completely entrenched in the lives of these stunning characters. This book spans human psychology and sexuality. I absolutely loved this book!
