Ryan Schow is the USA TODAY Bestselling author of the Dark Days of the After series, The Age of Embers series, The Last War series and the Swann series. He's drawn to books, movies and TV featuring strong, capable characters who are admirable but flawed, and eventually willing and able to go knuckle to knuckle with even the most formidable of adversaries.

That said, the best characters are always rich with personality, but struggling under the weight of some internal strife. Sprinkle in some chaos and muddy the waters between right and wrong, and to him you have a compelling tale. To Ryan, these kinds of impossible circumstances make for the best stories, and this is reflected in both his characters and the content of his novels.

How will he survive a total collapse of society? The good news is, Skylar has a plan and Harper just might be a part of it. Will they be able get off the grid before all hell breaks loose? The apocalypse is coming, which means the end is near…
