9780062016317: Carry the Flame (Harper Voyager Fiction)

“Jaros has crafted such a vividly ravaged world that I could almost feel the grit on my fingers as I turned each page.”
—Marcus Pelegrimas, author of the Skinners series

“Intense, amazing….A superb, brilliant thriller.”
—Bill Evans, author of Category 7

James Jaros envisions a world ruined beyond our darkest imaginings—an Earth devastated by plague and environmental collapse—and offers a gripping tale of survival and sacrifice after the apocalypse. His extraordinary Carry the Flame continues where his acclaimed Burn the Sky left off, as a ragged band of survivors—including a mother and her two daughters—flee the brutal soldiers of a bloodthirsty religious cult, only to fall captive to a mad despot who rules with fear and monsters in a nightmare city in the wasteland. Jaros, a nom de plume of acclaimed thriller author and four-time Emmy Award-winning investigative reporter Mark Nykanen, has created an extraordinary post-apocalyptic novel that combines the visceral thrills of Mad Max with the chilling insights of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale and Oryx and Crake. Carry the Flame is a powerful vision of a dystopian future on a par with Cormac McCarthy’s The Road and Stephen King’s acclaimed classic, The Stand.

From the Back Cover:

Tomorrow's world is a wasteland, decimated by vengeful nature and disease . . .

And those who rule the ruins worship a cruel and terrible god.

Having survived the terror of the Alliance and the single-minded fanaticism of its hideous religion, a caravan of survivors moves quickly into the Great American Desert, the wastes of what once was America's heartland. With her daughters at her side—recently rescued Ananda and her daring older sister, Bliss—Jessie hopes to find sanctuary in the Arctic, now rumored to be temperate. But their enemies are powerful and relentless, and will not rest until they possess the caravan's most precious treasures: their prepubescent female children, a stolen tanker filled with fuel . . . and a pair of frightened twins, whom the Army of God calls "demon."

But the danger in pursuit pales before the horror that lies ahead when Jessie, the marauder-turned-ally Burned Fingers, and the innocents in their care face the savagery, the madness, and the monsters that dwell in the terrifying City of Shade.

About the Author:

James Jaros is the pen name of the widely praised thriller author Mark Nykanen, the four-time Emmy winning investigative reporter whose internationally best-selling books have been praised by critics as "irresistible," "vivid and emotional," "nerve-wracking," and "furiously paced." Europe's largest newspaper hailed him as "The new master of the psycho-sexual thriller" for his dark psychological tales. Now, as James Jaros, he sweeps readers into a post-apocalyptic world as real as it is horrifying.

Jaros blogs at "Postings from the Post-Apocalypse."
