Bosley Coughlin can travel through time. And the future does not look good.
Through a heady cocktail of drugs and the occult, Bosley slips through time and space and glimpses The End. Cities lay in ruins, and those who still cling to life hide in the rubble like frightened animals. Walking carcasses shamble through the debris exacting a horrible fate upon any living they find.
This horrific future is the only world fourteen year old Ocean has ever known. Starving and alone, she struggles for even the most basic of necessities: food, water, shelter, love�
In the present, Bosley stumbles across Clarice Hudson and soon realizes that she is much more than a simple shop girl. One by one, she displays the seven symptoms of the contagion that will bring Bosley�s world to an end and create the nightmare Ocean calls home. Clarice may hold the key to stopping the coming apocalypse and sparing Ocean from the atrocities of mankind�s imminent future� but only if Coughlin is willing to push beyond every notion he�s ever held about right and wrong.

�I kept imagining The Dude (from THE BIG LEBOWSKI) telling a drugged out version of H.G. Wells� THE TIME MACHINE� This is a book that is really worth reading��--BuyZombie.com

Life for Bosley Coughlin has never been easy. He's seen things that no one else has seen and has done things he's not always proud of. Yet there's something about him that sets him apart from everyone else. You see, he can travel through time. He's never sure as to where he'll end up whenever Time comes to claim him, but the things he experiences wherever he goes leave him scarred for life. Most especially since he's repeatedly given glimpses of how the world will end soon enough. Mind you, it's not pretty. With every trip he takes, he becomes privy to the circumstances that lead to the Earth's demise. Chaos and destruction now reign supreme. Cold, callous beings, shells of those formerly living, now walk the streets, eager to prey on unsuspecting souls. Falling into their hands guarantees a quick, merciless death, a certainty survivors now do their best to avoid. Bosley knows what caused the apocalypse. He was there from the beginning. Clarice Hudson has been an integral part in contributing to man's downfall, something he did his best to avoid. Beautiful and alluring, he knows she's unaware of the demons that now exist inside her. Everything about her calls out to him, yet that's a luxury he can never give in to. The girl is tainted and it's up to him to fix the situation before it can get out of hand. It's the only way he can ensure that his beloved Ocean can lead a normal life within the dark and murky world she now lives in. Her very existence depends on him taking matters into his own hands. For her, he will do anything. For her, he will make things right, if only to give her that fighting chance she so very much deserves. This book hooked me in from the very beginning. William's style of writing is so engrossing that it catches the reader off the bat. I had a hard time putting the book down once I got started. He's painted such vivid picture of a world spiraling into madness. A world where the undead are everywhere and those left remaining must do everything they can to survive. I totally recommend the story - a gripping tale that will leave you wanting to read more!
