Everything that means anything to you is taken away in seconds. No warning. No explanation. Nothing. Autumn: The City
is the first sequel to the acclaimed horror novel Autumn
A virulent disease rips across the face of the planet, killing billions of people in less than twenty-four hours. A small group of survivors cower in fear in the desolate remains of a silent city. As the full extent of the devastation caused by the disease is revealed the desperate people fight to keep thousands upon thousands of plague victims at bay and to continue to survive from day to day. They fight to stay alive. The unexpected appearance of a company of soldiers again threatens the survivor's fragile existence. Do they trust this sudden military presence? Will the military bring them hope and answers, or just more fear, pain and destruction?
Far more than an ordinary sequel, Autumn: The City expands on the nightmare of the first novel and takes the reader closer to discovering what caused the death of billions of people on a single inauspicious September day.
About the Author
David Moody is the author of the acclaimed Autumn living dead novels. A writer sick of square-jawed, all-American heroes and contrived happy endings, his books are unique and individual. Tried and tested horror and science-fiction themes are twisted and given a fresh perspective by this British author. Moody's characters are ordinary people you, me, the man or woman next door or across the street forced to survive the most extraordinary of conditions. It is this uneasy mixture of the familiar and bizarre that makes his stories such unsettling and disturbing reads.
