About The Book

WILLOW meets SAVING PRIVATE RYAN Weaving fantasy, horror, and action adventure, END AFTER END: At the Moment of Your Death tells the genre-blending, soul-bending story about how one man’s life – and death – impacts all of existence, time after time … without end.

IT NEVER ENDS
Life is nothing if not a series of endings. School. Jobs. Friendships. Love. Walter Willem's death was fast and unexpected. His was an unremarkable life. So, how is it that his story continues as cannon fodder in an endless war waged against an insatiable darkness hellbent on consuming all of existence?

Walt Willem is dead. When he awakens in the End After End he must survive being dropped face-first into the midst of an endless war. Unsatisfied by the artistic pursuits of his former life, Walt believes he's been summoned to the End After End to collect a set of ancient relics and reignite the power of a long dormant warrior who will vanquish the all-consuming Ulc.

At last Walt believes, he will finally be fulfilled. Walt is going to learn to redefine what it is to be a hero. Being a hero doesn’t mean saving the world all at once. A hero can be forged in small steps, taking the tiniest measures – the smallest acts resonate throughout the universe, changing the course of lives. Over, and over, and over again…

End After End … drops you right in the middle of the action so you can figure everything out as you go along. 10/10” – Graphic Policy

“Quickly paced with immersive world-building, 'End After End' is a delightful ride worth taking.” – Lotusland Comics

’End after End ‘ … is a barebones fantasy survival story that thrusts its protagonist into a terrifying situation with little pretense and even less preparation, and does a great job of making the reader feel just as confused and as stressed as its protagonist.” – Multiversity Comics
