Author: Sam J. Fires
No lights. No power. No help.
During the coldest winter on record, an EMP attack wipes out the nation’s power and cripples the country.
As the city spirals into lawless chaos, investigative journalist, twenty-six-year-old Cassandra Drews is forced onto the dangerous streets of Portland to begin the long walk to her parents’ home in Oregon.
But hypothermia and starvation aren’t the only dangers Cass and her rescue dog, Daisy, face on their perilous trek. Danger is stalking them, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. Help comes in the form of troubled ex-marine Isaac Winters, who slips back into soldier mode with the city’s collapse.
Now, the trio must work together in a fight for survival as they race to escape the city before violence, or the bitter wintry storm can claim them. Do they have what it takes to make it out alive? Or will they be crushed by the brutality of the unforgiving cold?

About the Author:
Sam lives in an urban jungle in the northeast of England with her two beautiful sons and an exceptionally noisy Bengal cat. Constantly dreaming about end-of-the-world scenarios and how she can plunge her characters into impossible situations, she can only hope they will somehow figure their way to safety. Sam’s characters are imperfect, brave, but able to endure the direst predicaments. A person who would hate to have to survive the elements, Sam wouldn’t last five minutes in one of her own stories.
Before picking up a pen, Sam worked as an attorney for many years – she still does – but her dream is to put the law behind her and work full time as an author.
