Summary

Human civilisation as we know it has ended. What next?

Afterlight Summary

Afterlight by Alex Scarrow

The world lies devastated after the massive oil crisis that was described in LAST LIGHT. Human society has more or less entirely broken down and millions lie dead of starvation and disease. There are only one or two beacon communities that have managed to fashion a new way of living.

Jenny Sutherland runs one of these groups. Based on a series of decaying offshore oil-rigs - for safety - a few hundred people have rebuilt a semblance of normality in this otherwise dead world.

But as she and her people start to explore their surroundings once again, they start to realise not every survivor has the same vision of a better future than their catastrophic past. There are people out there who would take everything they have. War is coming, and the stakes are truly massive...

Afterlight Reviews

'This is a fascinating timeslip mystery... Scarrow manages the division well, keeping up the suspense on both sides of the story.' - Guardian on OCTOBER SKIES.

'LAST LIGHT is sensational.' - London Lite.

'Alex Scarrow's depiction of Britain as only a few hours away from disintegration is chillingly plausible. This is the perfect book to give to somebody who opposes your plans to build a wind farm.' - Daily Telegraph.

'Scarrow keeps his foot on the accelerator in this apocalyptic thriller, which is reminiscent of Frederick Forsyth and John Wyndham.' - Mike Ripley, Birmingham Post.
