Year One (Large Print / Library Binding)

I am not particularly a fan of "doom" storylines, and certainly not post apocalyptic scourges but was intrigued by this effort by noted romance and mystery author Nora Roberts.
This author has proven her abilities to keep our interest over trilogy publications as well as in her "In Death" series featuring Eve Dallas, a futuristic series now 48 books and continuing (under the nom de plum J.D. Robb).
I just started the second book in this CHRONICLES OF ONE series titled OF BLOOD AND BONE and find the characters to be as realistic and engaging as the debut.
I care about the fates of these survivors who exhibit pluck and resourcefulness as well as some magic and prophecy. They farm, govern, breed and grow.— Marla

“This new novel from legendary romance author Nora Roberts feels entirely fresh and utterly compelling. A plague that starts on a small farm manages to destroy almost the entire human population on Earth, and those who are left find themselves changed - some for better, some for worse. The scattered bits of humanity that remain struggle to fight the chaos that descends, as some characters - Lana and Max, Arlys and Fred, and Rachel and Jonah - find themselves immune to the plague. This fabulous departure from Roberts' usual storytelling is refreshing and compulsively readable!”

“Nora Roberts steps away from romance to give us an absolutely devastating story of global cataclysm. A new disease has rapidly infected most of the world, leaving behind survivors who exhibit mysterious—and dangerous—new abilities. I read this in one sitting, on the edge of tears at all times as I moved through every emotion. Although Year One chronicles the near-extinction of mankind, the story is one of rebirth and the persistence of hope, rather than despair. I’ll be counting the days until the next book in the series releases!”
