At the end of the world - it's the start of something new, with origins both puzzling and terrifying.

A green fog descends over every major city in the world, and the populations disappear one by one. By nightfall, every living soul in every metropolis is gone. Earth grinds to a halt. Only a few stragglers are alive in the rural countryside. When Sam and his brother return from a mountain camping trip, they find only empty city streets. Alone, they look for any survivors to give them answers. The next day, lizards the size of Komodo dragons flood the city and attack the remaining humans. When these creatures are confronted by giant spiders, the two species fight each other for the remaining food supply.... with the humans caught in the middle.

- A teenage boy with electric powers - stemming from his DNA
- His brother with a strong iron will.
- A college student who can understand and communicate with animals.
- A scientist with a secret.
- And a band of psychopaths with an agenda of their own.

Defending each other from the evils of men and creatures alike, the last humans must race to unravel the mystery of the empty cities, the swarming creatures, and the disappearance of humankind.

About the Author

Rod Little has written for countless science fiction and horror magazines over the past 25 years. He has also written novellas for the Wayward Pines series, and nine novels, including two series: Sons of Neptune (Earthweeds, Revenge of the Spiders, The Last Starbase, and The Boneyards of Nebula), and the Angry Galaxy series; plus two horror novels, The Whisper Killer and On Gravedigger Road.
The Whisper Killer spent 7 weeks at the #1 spot and has received critical acclaim.

Born in northern Illinois, Rod later moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where he opened a sci-fi gaming store called Starbase One on Pittsburgh's famed Forbes Avenue. In 2006 he moved to Southeast Asia to begin writing again.
He is still a voracious reader, and loves hearing what fans also read, besides his work.
“Reading sci-fi should open your eyes and make you think, but it should also be fun.”
