New York Times bestselling author William R. Forstchen brings a sequel to his hit novel One Second After. Months before publication, One Second After was cited on the floor of Congress as a book all Americans should read, a book discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a truly realistic look at the dangers of EMPs. An EMP is a weapon with the power to destroy the entire United States in a single act of terrorism, in a single second; indeed, it is a weapon that the Wall Street Journal warns could shatter America. One Second After was a dire warning of what might be our future...­and our end. Now, One Year After returns to the small town of Black Mountain, and the man who struggled so hard to rebuild it in the wake of devastation-­John Matherson. It is a thrilling follow-­up and should delight fans in every way.­**

Author:

Boarding a transport ship after the Battle of Gettysburg, Colonel Andrew Keane and his 35th Maine regiment are swept into an alternate world. The first human civilization they encounter on this planet resembles medieval Russia, with boyars and priests ruling over the peasants and townspeople. Soon Keane and his regiment learn this world’s terrible secret: that cannibalistic hordes of large, fierce Tugars circle the planet and demand tribute – including humans to be devoured – and the hordes will be arriving sooner than expected, with several hundred thousand warriors on horseback.
Using all their 19th century know-­how, Keane and his men build a new society, with railroads, ironworks etc. and with skill, cooperation and courage, the regiment and most of the Russians work together in hopes of defeating the horde. A great story of survival and bravery in the face of overwhelming odds. First novel in the acclaimed “Lost Regiment” series by the author of ONE SECOND AFTER, ONE YEAR . . .
