“Do you think you know what your own mother might do? The Survivors is an up-close-and-personal mystery—the best suspense I’ve read this year. It will haunt you.” —DIANA GABALDON, #1 New York Times–bestselling author of the Outlander series Psychologist Cal Henderson has a successful practice in Washington, DC, and big plans for the future. But he can’t escape a terrible secret. When he was a boy, his mother murdered his father and two brothers and severely wounded Cal’s best friend, Scottie Glass. Desperate to keep the nightmare at bay, Cal has turned his back on everything that happened that night. On the twenty-fifth anniversary of the killings, Scottie shows up at Cal’s office—edgy, paranoid, but somehow still the loveable kid he once was. Though their lives have taken very different paths, they both believe Cal’s mother couldn’t have been a murderer. She loved them too much, no matter what dark place she found herself in. They set off to dig up the real story. Cal uncovers one shocking secret after another about his family. The trail leads to a shady defense contractor, a scheming US Attorney, and, ultimately a billionaire with the kind of power and connections that can only be found in Washington. But Cal is paying a price. The memories he has avoided for so long have come flooding back, sending him into a tailspin from which he may never recover. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Two years ago, the ash started falling like gray snow. The volcanoes had erupted. . . . For Miles and his sister, Sarah, the real disaster started in the violent aftermath—when they were forced to leave their cushy suburban home and flee to the north woods for safety. Miles got them to a cabin, but now winter is setting in. All they have to get them through is the milk from Sarah’s prized possession—her goat—and Miles’s memory of wilderness survival skills. When Sarah tries to regain some normalcy by attending the local school, she realizes she is no longer quite the person she used to be. Now she is Goat Girl, a Traveler, and it’s hard to pretend she isn’t. And when a horrific twist of fate robs Miles of his memory, he discovers the heart of his true identity. They knew the volcanoes would change the world. Now, in order to survive, they must change with it. Will Weaver delivers an extraordinary sequel to Memory Boy, showing that several basic instincts lie deep inside us all: love, fear, and survival.
The aliens have landed, and this time they're not hostile. They're just rude. Coming in waves of rocket ships, the aliens not only refuse to acknowledge the existence of Earth's cultures. They refuse to acknowledge the existence of humanity itself. The aliens by means of their bulk block entry into cars, grocery stores, even elevators...without malice or even purpose. No one knows what it's like to be ignored by the aliens more than Craig Mencken, an amateur journalist who writes inane copy for a magazine tycoon. A pair of aliens have invaded his home, abused his furniture, and disrupted his life. Who thought first contact could be such a nuisance? But when Mencken's employer demands the story of the century, a fictional interview with an alien, the sinister truth about the invasion is accidentally revealed. Soon Mencken's ex-boyfriend is dropping hints about a mysterious cabal that promises to rid the aliens from neighborhoods like exterminators do with vermin. Then a narcissistic federal agent wants Mencken to spy on the cabal for the sake of his country. As if life weren't already hard enough, the "dozers"--cubic machines capable of demolishing skyscrapers in minutes--start landing across the globe, and it does not seem likely the aliens will ignore mankind for much longer.

This is the last of nine satiric novels (The Eddie Devlin Compendium) tracking a gaggle of characters at intervals since 1929. In No. 8 (1984-85) Eddie Devlin wed a wealthy widow and retired from the newspaper business.Subsequently, elsewhere in the world, Ronald Reagan, a former film actor playing a President, proposed a
Throughout the world “Gifted” people go about their lives like anyone else in this world preoccupied by their daily lives, unaware of their special ancestral blood line. There are less than a thousand such individuals left on this world. In an effort to attempt to “civilize” this world, the Council of Nine, a Federation of nine Empires occupying this quadrant of the galaxy, had sent some of its people to try and create a human being capable of overcoming their barbaric behavior by creating a new genetic pool with basic traits common to all Empire people: superior intelligence, and telepathic and empathic abilities. Their descendants, the Gifted, born of mixed parents (“gods” and humans) are now emerging on the eve of the annihilation of this planet’s civilizations. On the morning of 10 April 2020, ironically Good Friday, a religious holiday celebrating the death of a savior, life on Earth would change forever. A nuclear holocaust provoked by an incompetent and feeble minded US President, triggers unparalleled devastation and violent climate disasters. The earth has been severely injured. It seems like Mother Nature wants to cleanse herself of the human race. This planet is likely doomed…Gaïa is dying. Their quest for survival is explored in this story. REVIEWS: Rated Five Star by Reader’s Favorite review: Reviewed By: Charles Remington Review Rating: 5 Stars - Congratulations on your 5-star review! Reviewed By Charles Remington for Readers’ Favorite I found The Survivors scarily realistic, with the descriptions of the political scene leading up to the final nuclear war uncomfortably accurate. The author handles a good number of situations with skill, and the large cast of characters is solid and well-drawn. One is never left floundering; the narrative avoids over-complication and remains tight and well-defined. Of course, there are harrowing sequences but they are handled sensitively by this competent storyteller. The Survivors is a welcome addition which stands out in what is fast becoming a crowded genre. I look forward to reading the follow-up volumes. Review #2: Review by Melanie Moon Reviewed By: Melanie Moon Review Rating: 4 Stars Reviewed By Melanie Moon for Readers’ Favorite The Survivors by Jeg is an engrossing science fiction fantasy tale with multi-dimensional characters that are interrelated. Jeg slowly crafts each of the integral characters and their abilities (supernatural and otherwise) into this well-woven plot. We follow them through their various journeys to find this central meeting place while the Guardian (an alien observer sent by the nine) keeps watch over them. If they can arrive safely, the Guardian will rescue the remaining “Gifted” and those who travel with them. I enjoyed this dense and plot-driven story. The cast of characters is vast and intriguing as is the narrative. There is a slight cliffhanger, but it is the first in the trilogy. I look forward to reading the next book.
Crushing gravity. Thin air. Winters of unimaginable cold Searing summers under two suns. A deadly wasteland teeming with monsters and killing fever. That was Ragnarok, the most dreaded planet yet discovered. And Ragnarok was where a thousand untrained Earthmen -- and women and children -- were brutally marooned by a sadistic enemy. Two hundred died the first night. In the morning, the survivors knew what they must live for...revenge!
