Karen watches from the safety of her home as the world she knows crumbles around her. She views the horror of humanity's annihilation via cable television and the internet, until they too are gone. There's no time to understand the inexplicable sickness that takes everyone. Karen's daughter dies in her arms. Her husband and son never return. When she gets sick it's almost a mercy.

And then she wakes up. Tillie and Raider, her dogs are all that is left. Whatever the reason for the near extinction of human life, it has spared the rest of the animal kingdom. On her first trip out Karen finds a planet unalterably changed, not with a bang but with a whimper. Karen gathers a pack of canines as companions and helpers. Among her furry partners are two very special German shepherds that appear to be more than just man's best friend.

As she tries to process her different existence and locate others, Karen begins a physical metamorphosis. What she's about to realize is that not everyone changes in the same way and that some things remain the same. Humans are still this world's greatest predator.

If you love dogs; if you love imagining the struggle of a totally different world; or if you love getting to know new and unlikely characters, Critically Endangered is guaranteed to entertain. It is an epic saga and thought provoking novel about a "human apocalypse".

About the Author

NS Austin has two published novels, Critically Endangered and Beyond the Great Dying. This fresh, epic series reflects the author's love of all things science fiction, apocalyptic, mystical, and just a tiny bit odd. Soldier, Hero, Thief, a thriller, will be published in May 2018.

Nancy spent the first part of her life working to feed, clothe, and house her family. Among her previous life incarnations, the author was an Army Colonel, a business executive, a government manager and a champion baton twirler (no kidding). Her unusual path to becoming a best-selling author is built upon the gift of raw material for a never-ending supply of interesting, honorable, quirky, and badass characters. Now that she is mostly certain she will never have to store her worldly possessions in a shopping cart, she is free to devote herself to writing from her home in Washington State. She lives with her husband and three dogs.

The author established a goal to publish one amazing novel a year for the foreseeable future. Follow her on Facebook and Kindle to make sure she stays on course.
