Over a remote northern forest, a small plane carrying five teenage friends flies into a freak storm. Struck by lightning, the aircraft crashes and the passengers find themselves cast into a life-changing adventure.

In a hidden valley, a mysterious people gaze at the stormy sky as a glowing object with fiery wings disappears behind a mountain ridge. The astonishing sight reignites an ancient prophecy foretelling the arrival of five chosen ones destined to become bearers of light against a dark storm gathering on humanity’s horizon.

In a distant city, a secretive organization led by a shadowy figure initiates a sequence of cataclysmic events designed to wreak havoc across the planet, beginning with a remote mining site in northern Canada.

As the three worlds collide, unlikely heroes arise. Armed with powers entrusted to them by the ancient prophecy and the resilience of their life-long bond, the five teens take a stand against a malevolent foe.

Free Post-Apocalyptic/Fantasy Book Tour for The Survivors (Life After War # 1)

Today, I’m happy to feature the Life After War series by Angela White. I read the first four books in this series, one right after the other back in 2012, and only stopped because the fifth installment had yet to be released. It’s an intriguing read with a varied cast of characters who struggle to survive after a nuclear holocaust destroys the world as they knew it. This multi-genre series stood out to me because it blends together science fiction, fantasy, adventure, as well as a touch of romance with the desolation and violence of a post-apocalyptic setting. It’s complex, but White makes it work.

The best part of this tour is that The Survivors, the first book in the series is available for FREE for the duration of the tour!  Read on to learn more about the series, watch the book trailer, and read an excerpt from book one.

From dangerous trips into dark, apocalyptic cities, to patriotic rescues and furious revelations, Life After War is an action packed fantasy series where those left alive must come to terms with their mistakes in the old world, while fighting for a place in the new one. It’s the apocalyptic fantasy series that Stephen King fans have been searching for. This way, please…
