They Came Promising Everything. They Left Us Nothing. ‘Remnants The Colcoa Wars’
Remnants: The Colcoa Wars Volume 1 by Kirk Allmond. Released June 1, 2014, by Permuted Press
After the Colcoa stripped earth of all of her natural resources and left, the planet’s average temperature soared as the population dwindled down to the thousands. The few humans that survived the invasion are forced to live underground to escape the oppressive heat. Joe, his daughter Willa, and son Ezekiel are among the few brave enough to venture outside to gather food and supplies in the arid, rocky landscape. Their job is to bring enough food, water, and materials for their town to survive the summer in the cool caves of Red River Falls.
The world outside isn’t safe. Genetically altered animals, experimented on by the Colcoa, roam the surface. When a pack of experimental grizzly bears attack the family, Willa’s life is altered forever. What she learns on her journey will change the world.
Together with her new friend Xander, Willa will explore their world and uncover clues that lead her through a doorway into the unknown.
Post apocalypse without the zombies! Brave young female lead. Great character development and plot with twists that will keep you up way past bedtime! A must read that isn't just for young adults. Cannot wait for the sequel that is bound to happen...and it better had!
Kirk Allmond started writing the first bestselling What Zombies Fear novel in 2010 as an online story as part of his website The Zombie Preparedness Initiative. When the idea to write a novel struck him, he took his own "Zombie Apocalypse" plan and turned it into a story. That story has now spawned six novels and two short stories, and is showing no sign of letting up.
In addition to books set in the What Zombies Fear 'universe', Kirk has also written Remnants: The Colcoa Wars, and The Evolution of Vaughn, both have a sci-fi edge.
As a world renown expert on zombies and post-apocalyptic survival, Kirk Allmond has been featured on television and major market radio programs and he has spoken at numerous conventions on the topic. Allmond has consulted on major network television programs and two zombie themed motion pictures.
When he's not writing or talking about zombies, the Michigan born writer holds firmly to the southern roots of his family. He grew up in Chicago IL, and Roswell, GA. Kirk has an amazing little boy who was born in 2007, who is the basis for the character Max in his novels. His time growing up in the south with his grandparents taught him the value and skills to live off the land. He is an avid outdoorsman, loves hunting, fishing and backpacking. When he's not honing his survival skills, Allmond is often found sitting at a role-playing game table, either as the GM of his own Zombie Apocalypse role playing game or as a participant in games run by one of the members of Grown as Gamers, the premier podcast for all things geek and pop culture.
