A world dictator emerges as millions disappear from the earth. Economic fraud is extinguished and identity theft eliminated with the taking of a mark. Global catastrophes become the norm as earthquakes, hail, and oceanic pollution brings death. The nuclear option becomes common as famine and war eliminate the food source.
In a small midwestern city, unmarked believers seek to survive the next seven years. Their existence becomes entangled with the new world order while they long for their promised Messiah. The chance of survival is slim but their faith is not misplaced. One thing they all have in common - they all try to survive without a mark.

Seven years of Hell on Earth. Sounds like some bad fairytale doesn’t it. Unfortunately for us, this is the prophesied end of the world. It all begins with millions of people disappearing from the face of the Earth followed by seven years of misfortune, demonic activity and fighting for our lives. Without a Mark, by Michael Fauske, follows Tony Mykels (a.k.a. Toast) and his rag-tag band of fellow believers through this period of time. Robert Heilenberg has declared himself the ruler of the world and has taken it upon himself to have every man, woman and child worship him by taking a mark that allows them to buy and sell goods. Essentially, those without the mark are forced to live a life of scavenging as they are not allowed to make the money needed to purchase and survive. Also, if caught without the mark, believers in Christ are beheaded by the end of the day. Toast and his compatriots are a handful of believers to not take the mark. These characters have denied the mark as their reading of the Bible has told them that to take the mark means instant damnation. Without a Mark, Fauske’s debut novel, chronicles the journey of those left behind for not heeding the words of the Messiah in time to be called home. For them, they must survive the seven years of torment and loss before witnessing the second coming of the promised one and the beginning of the kingdom. Without a Mark is a horrifying portrayal of the end days of humanity. Fauske’s characters will draw you in and cause you to root for them. Heilenberg and his right hand, Atramentous, will also draw you in, but at the same time churn your stomach by their self-righteous and evil act. Without a Mark will leave you searching for an answer to two questions. When the trumpet sounds will you A) be ready for the call and B) If not, do you have what it takes to survive?
