Dogs howl in the
streets, running wild. Birds fall dead from the sky. Even the sun itself
is failing. As darkness descends all hell breaks loose, terrorists
strike hard and fast, taking out the army base at Fort Hamilton,
Jake Carter, formerly Special Forces, is now an NYC subway electrician who finds himself dragged into a world of conspiracy and menace by a woman he hasn't spoken to in over a decade. When Carter finds two young men spraying graffiti across the subway station walls, he realizes these marks aren't gang tags or band names, they are a message, a call to arms spelled out in a lost language. The Hidden are communicating with each other.
Carter must now answer some impossible questions: How do you fight an enemy you cannot see? How do you stop some of the richest and most powerful men in the world when they own the shadows? And most important of all, how do you stay alive when the world around you is dying?"
From Akashic Books's Infamous imprint comes Steve Saville's Sunfail (Nov.) which stars New York City subway electrician and former Special Forces soldier Jake Quinn as he fights a conspiracy by the world's richest men to destroy the world." - Library Journal
"Steven Savile's fear-inducing novel of apocalyptic proportions, Sunfail, will no doubt inspire the next generation of street-corner crazies wielding The End Is Nigh signs. Prepare yourself for a wild ride. Next stop, the end of the world." - Jeremy Robinson, author of Island 731 and Uprising
"Darkly foreboding and all too plausible, Savile's writing explodes off the page like a shark hunting through deep water; by the time you can see it clearly, it is far too late to get away." - Joseph Nassise, New York Times best selling author of The Heretic
"Sunfail is the most entertaining novel I've read in the last twelve months...by a mile. Beautifully written, well paced, but above all just a cracking story. A book you can get lost in. Sunfail delivers on every single page." - Sean Black, author of the Ryan Lock series
"Savile has forged a world of shadow conspiracies that are all too real. Packed with hold-your-breath writing that pushes the characters into one tense cut-the-blue-wire scene after another, Savile lands raw punches that connect explosively. This is thriller writing at its grittiest, and finest." - Nick Cole, author of Soda Pop Soldier
