   I have always been fascinated by the 'end of the world'. Will there be a great cataclysm in our future in the form of another giant asteroid or the Yellowstone super volcano erupting to obliterate the sun for many years?  Quite possibly, but I doubt it will be the end of all life. 65 million years ago I don't think the dinosaurs were expecting that a giant asteroid would come down and ruin their day. Not being the best at pre-planning, they didn't fare too well. 13 thousand years ago, megafauna (mammoths, giant sloths, saber toothed cats) also ran into a very tough day.  That was not the end of all live either.

   Science tells us that there have been several extinction events on Earth in the last two billion years. Although each has caused great havoc, none have been the 'end'. Life found a way to go on. Will we? And if we do, it is quite possible that at least a portion of the ones who do survive will not be humans as we know them. Will science save us, then become folklore & legend to the new races? Will our current technology be viewed as magic? Wonderful things to speculate on.

One thing is certain however. When the survivors of the next great event crawl out of their shelters and cast their tired gaze upon ruins of what was, they will still face the same old problems.

This next set of books dives deeper into the future-fantasy aspects of the post-apocalyptic world. As the series goes on, so does the passage of time. The young heroes & newly weds evolve into the parents. Technology also begins to slip back into people's lives for good - and bad. Each book builds on the last chronologically, but each one is a separate story that does not rely on the others.
