The entire Barren Trilogy is included in this set. For fans of post-apocalyptic thrillers.
The Pulse [Book One]:
The end of the world comes not with fire or ice, but a flash of light...
Laney and her friends only survive the supernova because they're on a field trip to an underground science facility. When she and the other nine survivors emerge, Laney finds a world of corpses, red smog, and tight supplies.
And worst of all, the distant exploding star has destroyed the ozone layer. After losing family to skin cancer, Laney's no stranger to what the sun can do. It's already destroyed her world and now it's coming for everyone else.
Staying alive and finding her father means that Laney must face her deepest fear—her fear of hope.
But can any be found in this new reality?
The Storm [Book Two]:
Laney and her friends have survived 6 days into the apocalypse and have made it back to their Arizona hometown—but now ferocious dust storms are threatening their lives. Without a working vehicle, Laney must think of a way to help their group of nine escape to the eastern side of the country, to where her father might still be alive. Even though she's promised to stick with her friends and not give up hope, Laney knows better - not all of them are likely to survive the journey and she may once again have to face the loss of someone she cares about. And worst of all, as the new leader of her group, another loss will be her fault, her worst nightmare.
But as Laney leads her friends from Colton and out into the new world, she finds out the storms are not her only enemy. Other survivors are, too, and kindness no longer exists. Worst of all, an old enemy might have survived a bit longer than she hoped...
The Freeze [Book Three]
Laney and her friends have come far since the supernova disaster that killed half of the planet, braving the post-apocalyptic conditions, death, and cruelty on their journey across the country to find their families. On the way, Laney has battled her own fears of loss—and it's only gotten worse since she's found herself getting closer to Jerome, a fellow survivor. She may or may not find her father alive in New York and there's only a fifteen percent chance she'll survive to see the next ten years.
But when her group of survivors reaches New York City, the danger has only begun. The world is now cooling and the only way to survive will be to find a place to hide from the coming cold and starvation. Worse still, Laney's caught the attention of a government agency bent on using her to ensure their own survival—and their plans for her might destroy who she is forever. Will Laney be able to break her icy cage of fear and embrace the terror that is life?
