A major release in the New York Times bestselling One Second After series, set in an alternate America rebuilding after an electromagnetic pulse, this is William R. Forstchen’s The Final Day.
It’s been more than two years since an EMP attack wiped out all electricity in the United States and plunged the country into darkness, starvation, and death. After fighting their fair share of battles in their North Carolina mountain town, John Matherson and the people in his community are beginning to restore the technologies and social order that existed prior to the EMP.
Then the national government announces that it’s ceding large portions of the country to China and Mexico; that the Constitution is no longer in effect; and that what’s left of the US Army has been deployed to suppress rebellion in the remaining states.
The man sent to confront John Matherson is General Bob Scales, Matherson’s old commanding officer and closest friend from prewar days. Will General Scales follow orders, or might he be the crucial turning point in the quest for a re-united America? When news breaks that members of the federal government knew the EMP attack was coming long before it hit, the government might get exactly what it fears: revolution.
