Just finished reading the sequel to last years end-of-the-world new series titled - Burn Down The Sky.
In Carry The Flame, the stakes are higher and even more dangerous. The total shock and awe value of this one even transcended some of the worst scenarios in any DL or OL. Major creep factor with everything from giant komodo dragons to insane crazed prisoners of a hardcase prison facility.
James Jaros's Carry the Flame is well worth the read.
