APOCALYPSIS is a 4-book, YA Post-Apocalyptic series, beginning with Book 1, Kahayatle. Book 4 (Haven) will be available March 31, 2013.

My name's Bryn Mathis. I'm seventeen years old, and I live in a neighborhood outside of Orlando, Florida. I live alone because my dad died almost a year ago, along with all the other adults in the world. I'm almost out of food and the gangs of kids that roam around my town are getting more vicious by the day.

It's time for me to leave and find another place to live ... a place where I can find food and shelter ... a place where they won't be able to find me.

Alone, it might have been possible; but now I've got company. I'm worried that I don't have what it takes to get from here to my final destination.

And I have no idea what might be waiting for me when I get there.

**No drugs, or sex in this installment of the series. Yes, there is some violence and some foul language. This is in the DARK SCIENCE FICTION/HORROR/POST-APOCALYPTIC genres, featuring teen characters only.**

Editorial Reviews

Between the Bind - Jenna Lynne
What took me so freaking long to read this book?! Apocalypsis: Kahayatle was so very different than what I expected - but just that much better because of it. Elle Casey creates a world ridden with violence and horror and injects the perfect amount of belly-laughing sarcasm, wit, and romance. Her characterization is phenomenal and honest through a setting that is disturbingly realistic.
Goodreads - Cynthia Shepp
Elle Casey has done it again. Created a world that drags you in and won't let you go. I think I am a little bit in love with her brain lol, at least the imagination part of it. I love books that make me root for the characters, and this one has you rooting from the very first page.

    Fantastic series

    Apocalyptic books are by far my favorite. I have read dozens and dozens over my 70 years. This series beats any other I have ever read. When I see some of the others that are out there, such as 5th Wave, I wonder why this series isn't right up at the top of the best selling list. Must be the fact that the author can't afford the advertising because that is all that is keeping it from being on the best seller list. Loved, loved, loved the series and hated to see it come to an end.

    A FEW MINOR SPOILERS!!! This is quite possibly one of the be


    This is quite possibly one of the best Dystopian novels I've ever read! The setting for this series is very unique, a weird plague or something has wiped out all of the adults and young children leaving behind only those teens who are in puberty. Once most of the food has run out the locals go all cannibal and start attacking other children for food. It's really creepy and horrible. I love the main characters. Bryn is awesome and her fighting skills rock. Peter is sweet and such a good person but he's super smart. I have a feeling we'll be seeing much more of what he can do in books to come and then there's Bodo the crazy German exchange student. I really liked his character. He just seems to go with the flow and is almost always happy and optimistic. The fact that he doesn't understand a lot of American phrases makes him so funny. There was a chapter in the book where Bryn and Bodo were talking about doodling and it had me laughing so hard I almost fell out of my chair. I wonder what Bodo's backstory is? The real hero of the book though is Buster the poodle.   My mom has had two poodles and they're every bit as loyal, fierce, smart and loving as she portrays them to be. It's impossible to have a poodle without getting all silly and using baby talk or poodle talk with them. Buster is just so awesome and I hope he makes it through everything. There's just something about books like this that I really enjoy. I mean except for the whole cannibal thing I think there's a part of me that really likes the idea of complete freedom and just living the best you can off of the land without having to worry about society, money, politics, etc. I wouldn't really want to do that but I like to dream about it :) Just living your life how you want with some good friends and a nice place to call home.

    Elle Casey's characters are always top notch. They become the readers friends and family and we suffer along beside them. We laugh when they do and cry when things are bad. They're extremely relatable and once again I was sucked into the world she created. I cannot wait to see what happens next for everyone. I love that they ended up with a Native American tribe or what's left of it. I so hope they can build a good home there for themselves but with things going so bad in the outside world you never know what's going to happen and from reading her other books I know anything and everything can and will happen and I probably won't see any of it coming. I just have to try and finish each book before night because I know from past experience that I won't be able to put them down and get any sleep. They just suck you right in and refuse to let you leave. I highly recommend this book along with her War of the Fae and Clash of the Otherworlds series.

    I want to thank Elle Casey for also bringing the Native American tribes of the Everglades in Florida to my attention. I've been reading about them and find their history and culture truly fascinating. I learned a lot of new things from this book.
