In 2003, the largest recorded solar flare collided with Earth. The sensors measuring the solar storm were destroyed at an X28 rating, but it was determined later to be an X45 class flare. A satellite monitoring solar activity picks up something far surpassing that classification and on a collision course.
A solar storm, so strong that X classifications no longer apply, hits the CERN large hadron collider at the moment of particle collision, sending a quantum wave around the world. Souls are ripped from the over 7 billion people that are in its path, many immediately succumbing. Those remaining either feel nothing or are tormented by endless agony. Only a few escape its path.
Sam and his teenage daughter Erin return to the surface to find a very different world from the one they left. Stranded, they must adapt quickly or become one of the creatures that now roam the earth.

Commander Lawrence resurfaces after a successful deep dive test of the Navy's new toy, only to find a transformed world. The floating derelicts of his escort vessels don't begin to show the horrors of what he'll find ashore.

From a review standpoint it was a real page turner, but it felt like the author got scared of the scope of the story he had created (at one point it felt like it SHOULD be a thousand page novel) and cut it short, way short, skipping over so many possible additional story lines. Still, if you like sci fi, and post apocalyptic... this story is a find.
