About The Book

It's 1999.
And you thought that first plague sucked?

The plague that killed every adult on the planet was vicious. It wasn't the last.
A devastating new plague has descended upon the teenage survivors -- a swarming, deafening terror that blackens the sky.
From this new darkness, a leader will emerge. But does he bring salvation -- or destruction?

About The Author

Daniel Parker is the author of over twenty books for children and young adults. He lives in New York City with his wife, a dog, and a psychotic cat named Bootsie. He is a Leo. When he isn't writing, he is tirelessly traveling the world on a doomed mission to achieve rock-and-roll stardom. As of this date, his musical credits include the composition of bluegrass soundtrack numbers for the film The Grave (starring a bloated Anthony Michael Hall) and a brief stint performing live rap music to baffled Filipino audiences in Hong Kong. Mr. Parker once worked in a cheese shop. He was fired.
