After

John Prescott

Alex heard the reports on the nightly news his father always had playing in the background. Threats of nuclear Armageddon were becoming ominously commonplace. Still, he never thought he’d live to see the day that the rhetoric became reality.

He thought wrong.

He and his father raced for the military Cryo-Facility as reports poured in from England and the US of nuclear missile launches from both sides. He kept checking the rear-view mirror, hoping to glimpse his mother’s car.

Alex’s father tried to reassure him that his mother would make it to safety. There was still time. Alex closed his eyes in his cryopod and said a silent prayer for his mother.

He awoke to blaring klaxons and flashing lights. The people in the pods beside him were dead. He was completely alone. Fifty-two years had passed.

Now Alex ventures into a world he does not know. He will try to find his father, who might yet live, and his mother, who surely couldn’t have survived, in the After.

 

After will be available at these fine retailers on or before 8/2/2019.

This is a great YA story to introduce beginning readers, young and adult alike, who are interested in science fiction stories. Readers that dismiss YA books because they’re not a young adult is a little bit like refusing to watch thrillers on the grounds that you’re not a policeman or a dangerous criminal.
I enjoyed this book from the first page to the last page. Set in post-apocalyptic America, a teenager is released from a cryogenics facility and finds himself thrust into a dangerous new world. Alex sets out to find his parents while eluding a murderous militia and mega-beasts. He manages to make a few friends who aid him in his quest along the way; involving him in tragedy and triumph and romance and a twist that shatters Alex’s hopes. Alex ends up being the key figure who must stop a new threat from destroying his world again. I can’t wait for the sequel! – Amazon Review

 

I was thoroughly and pleasantly surprised to enjoy this story. It’s rare for a first-timer to put out a book which has such polish . Mr.Prescott writes very well, good plot, grammar, story-line, character development, etc. Put away your car wax and keep entertaining us, John. – Amazon Review

 

Hats off to John Prescott for a well-written, carefully choreographed plot. He has created an amazing and believable post-apocalypse world, painstakingly researched with some ripping phenomenal hardware. If you’ve read One Day After, then This is a must read! – Amazon Review
