“Burn Down the Sky is an intense, amazing, post-apocalyptic tale of unleashed terror and undying hope. This is gifted writing and a superb, brilliant thriller.”
—New York Times bestselling author Bill Evans,
“Children of Men meets The Handmaid’s Tale—with The Road Warrior to rev up the high octane plot.”
—Mark Feldstein, author of Poisoning the Press
Jim Jaros transports readers to a terrifying, post-apocalyptic near-future world in Burn Down the Sky, a breathtaking thriller unfolding against a landscape of climate collapse and environmental catastrophe. Pseudonymously written by multiple Emmy and Edgar® Award-winning investigative journalist and author Mark Nykanen, Burn Down the Sky brilliantly imagines a nightmarish tomorrow where a runaway virus has killed most of the Earth’s population. Jaros electrifies with a fast-paced adventure tale of a desperate mother determined to free her captive child from the clutches of a dark and twisted religious cult. Fans of Stephen King’s The Stand and Justin Cronin’s The Passage will not want to miss this one.

After the destruction of nature and the death of the world . . .
After the Wicca virus drove billions to madness and suicide, replacing order and reason with violence and terror . . .
In the parched ruins of what once was civilization, one commodity is far morevaluable than all others combined: female children.
When well-armed marauders roll in at dusk to brutally attack a fiercely defended compound of survivors, Jessie is unable to halt the slaughter—and she can do nothing to prevent the ruthless abduction of innocents, including her youngest child. Now, along with her outraged teenage daughter, Bliss, Jessie must set out on a journey across a blasted landscape—joining up with the desperate, the broken, the half-mad, on an impossible mission: to storm the fortress of a dark and twisted religion and bring the children home.About the Author:
