Overview

The first book of 'Tales of the Triad'.
Seven billion people die overnight, killed by a change affecting entire galaxies. John, a resident of Florida, awakens to find himself on a plateau half a mile high in central Florida, the only survivor in the entire state. Others awaken and find themselves alone in destroyed cities or laying beside empty highways, changed by the event in ways they cannot yet understand.
Christine, a thirtyish middle school teacher finds herself with the body of a sixteen year old. A really nice body.
Carl discovers his sixty year old body is able to leap cars, he no longer needs his trifocals and he really likes the new ax he found.
Joshua was not happy to see his bike wrapped around the tree, but he was the only person in his group who could fire a gun. He could outrun a deer too, something that came in handy when the group got hungry.
Dogg still drinks too much and eats junk food, when he can find it, but the pack of wolves listens to his every command.
Ben can't do anything special, and he is pretty much the same as before. But being big, strong and kind is a good thing. At least the half a dozen orphaned children he collects from the ruins think it is. Frightened of a stranger at first, Ben soon wins them over and protects them as best he can.
He and the few survivors across the world must struggle to deal with a universe where magic has replaced science and all of mans inventions no longer exist.

Meet the Author

R J Murray was born on a small farm in central Kentucky in the early fifties. Growing up in the country gave him a love of nature and a dislike of shovelling manure, as well as the certain knowledge that goats were smarter than dogs and cows were dumber than rocks. After moving to Florida with his family, he returned to Kentucky each summer with his siblings and first heard about organic gardening as a teenager. Manure finally had a purpose. Winters were spent attending school on Florida's east coast and he returned to Kentucky after graduating from High School in 1969, where he got a job flipping burgers while he attended the local branch of the University of Kentucky. His free time was spent reading Science Fiction from the Golden Age, hunting, fishing and gardening. Hobbies have included history, spelunking, geology, as well as many different home crafts such as cross stitch, leather work, making mail armour and baking. At age fifty-nine, he accepted a challenge from his wife. (With your wild imagination, it should be easy for you.) He wrote his first novel in fifty eight days, changed the title many times, and ended up with a manuscript of two thousand pages which eventually became the first books in the series, Tales of the Triad.
