ABOUT THE SERIES: Next time you’re at the mall on a Saturday afternoon, imagine police barring the exits and a voice crackling over the PA system telling you to take shelter in the nearest store. Imagine being held there for one day, two—what would you do? Obey security? Investigate what was going on? Try to escape? This is the situation faced by two guys and two girls in this thriller. Follow their stories as they attempt to survive shoppers dropping dead around them, riots raging throughout the mall, and crackdowns by government agents in hazmat suits. Friendships grow in unlikely places and love strikes at the least convenient moment, even as death spreads like wildfire. Who will make it to the morning? And what sort of life awaits those who survive?
"Think of the heart-racing chase of The Hunger Games but a giant mall is your arena and everyone is potentially a tribute."
"Riveting. . .[Lorentz's] detailed depiction of the escalating chaos over the course of seven long days is deeply unsettling."
--The New York Times
“Realistic in its portrayal of the lasting effects of the ordeal for the survivors….The horrific actions undertaken by many of those trapped in the name of survival are disturbing but not gratuitous, and the question of morality at play in many of the characters’ decisions is fascinating…a thoughtful and broad-reaching ending to a tale of surviving dire circumstances.” — Kirkus Reviews, of No Dawn Without Darkness
