Seasons of an Apocalypse
Matt Voorhees awakes surrounded by a pile of VHS tapes in his cryopod, on the outskirts of an abandoned summer camp, along with eight other seventeen-year-olds. A scientist, who was tasked to watch over them while they were cryogenically frozen, is dead. They have no idea where they are, or more importantly, where the rest of the frozen people are. When they were put into cryosleep, the cryovault that housed them and five thousand other survivors was nowhere to be found—and now they’re all alone. Their personalities clash while they try to formulate a plan. And worse, they find one survivor, a man, that Matt doesn’t fully trust.
Intense floods, fires, blizzards, and tornadoes force them to stay put in Camp New Beginnings, halting their search for the vault. Their biggest fear shifts from not saving the rest of the human race to not living to see another day. As the body count adds up, Matt is forced to take charge.
Soon, natural disasters aren’t the only thing the survivors must overcome. While the mystery behind the natural disasters and Camp New Beginnings is slowly unraveling, the journey to find the cryovault burns hotter than ever for Matt and his group.
Welcome to Seasons of an Apocalypse—where the weather is just as dysfunctional as its residents.
Seasons of an Apocalypse
The six remaining refugees from Vault B-35 risk everything as they leave the controlled environment of the air lock and venture out into the real apocalypse, gas masks the only thing standing between them and the toxic air.
Determined to find his parents and the rest of the thousands of people cryogenically frozen in the vault, Matt Voorhees leads Catherine, Justin, Stacy, Cody, and Darin across dangerous terrain, where comets and earth collide, unpredictable lightning storms light up the world, and balls of hail-fire slam into everything in their path.
Matt and Catherine grow closer, and excitement builds within the group as they find shelter, supplies, and a map that will lead them directly to the vault.
Tragedy strikes the small group once again as they head into the home stretch.
Who will make it to Vault B-35? And will there be any survivors there to greet those who do?

Seasons of an Apocalypse
Air locks. Gas masks. Skyscraper-sized pipes. Secret trams. Broken elevators. Natural disasters aren’t the only thing that Matt, Cody, Catherine, Stacy, and Darin must overcome. What lurks beneath Camp New Beginnings is the real threat.
With their packs full, they continue their search for the cryovault to save their families and the other five-thousand cryogenically frozen people.
While the mystery behind the natural disasters and Camp New Beginnings is slowly unraveling, the journey to find the cryovault burns hotter than ever for Matt and his group. But with camp fully destroyed, is ‘the Sev’ their only place for refuge? Or will all their clues lead them to another dead end?
With the natural disasters ramped up to a maximum, Matt watches the people around him struggle to survive. The journey to find the cryovault isn’t straight forward—but nothing here is.
Did you know that you can buy a Russian nuclear submarine or a decommissioned WWII tank in the back of a comic book? Neither do Nate and Corey until they find vintage, obscure comic books in Nate’s late grandmother’s attic. Little do they know that the cheap cardboard subs and water pistol plasma guns that they purchase for a few nickels will come to life.
Instead of spending their summer at the pool or riding bikes, they fly around in hover cars, bounce around in space shoes, and test their incredible strength with a Hercules bracelet. But when it comes down to who actually owns and controls the novelties . . . well, that’s a different story.
With a power struggle and popularity on the line, Nate and Corey’s once rock-solid friendship is severed and their friends are forced to pick sides. A war is waged with cardboard tanks and milk jug flame throwers. Innocent fun turns an abandoned factory into a war zone. The consequences of the novelty war has unintended consequences —one that could be permanent.
On a planet where the very ground you walk on is electrified, the soil charger race rules, and the humans are dying off. Tage is neither since he is half human, half soil charger—a freak of nature. His only chance for redemption lies in the mission the human elders tasked him with as a boy. Tage has spent his life undercover in the capital city of Currentgrad. By day, he trains to be a soil charger knight—elite warriors who can harness the electricity in the earth into their own bodies. By night, he prepares for his ultimate task: to assassinate the tyrannical Overlord. His only comfort in these dangerous times is Capacity, the only girl he has ever loved, and his small group of loyal friends.
For the humans, the planet has become nearly unlivable. They’ve built a fortress on top of a rubber sea and have done their best to survive. They’ve only managed to escape total extinction due to their special skill set that the Overlord needs. Knowing the only way to end the oppression is by taking out the Overlord, they’re forced to plan an assassination.
Tage’s world is turned upside down, leaving him banished from Currentgrad and left for dead. His friends are scattered and Capacity is missing. Tage burns for revenge, and in killing the Overlord, he’ll save the humans and get the vengeance he’s craving. At age sixteen, he finally realizes the benefits of being both soil charger and human. His power is unlike anything anyone has ever seen. Can Tage harness the power hiding in his blood? He just hopes it’s enough to take on and entire army with his friends and save the humans.
Seasons of an Apocalypse
Camp New Beginnings isn’t the safe place Matt Voorhees thought it was. An intense flood stole the life of one of the nine survivors. And now all that remain from their cryocolumn are eight seventeen-year-olds and a troubled man named Darin, who Matt doesn’t trust.

Dr. Westbrook is dead, and there is no one tending to the over five thousand pods of cryogenically frozen people—the last of the human race.
Continued erratic weather halts them at every turn, and the body count is adding up. In their race to find their families and save the population, they uncover more things that are out of place, and the mystery deepens. Matt begins to question if he can even save himself—let alone the rest of the world.
Welcome to Camp New Beginnings—where the weather is just as dysfunctional as its residents.
