Description - Year One by Nora Roberts

'A match for end-of-the-world classics like Stephen King's THE STAND' - New York Times Review of Books

As this world ends, a new one begins.

From number one New York Times bestseller Nora Roberts - an epic, apocalyptic tale of good and evil, love and loss.

With one drop of blood, the old world is gone for ever. And in its place, something extraordinary begins...

They call it The Doom - a deadly pandemic that starts on a cold New Year's Eve in the Scottish countryside. There's something mysterious about the virus and the way it spreads. As billions fall sick and die, some survivors find themselves invested with strange, unexpected abilities.

Lana, a New York chef, has the power to move things and people with her will. Fred can summon light in the darkness. Jonah, a paramedic, sees snatches of the future in those he touches. Katie gives birth to twins, and suspects that she has brought fresh magic into the world, along with new life.

But The Doom affects people differently. Along with the light, a dark and terrifying magic will also rise. As the remaining authorities round up the immune and the 'Uncannies' for testing, Lana, Katie and others flee New York in search of a safe haven. The old world is over, and Year One has begun.

'Nora Roberts weaves a powerful story of a deadly plague in this gripping, movie-like narrative' - Good Housekeeping

'A deadly pandemic known as The Doom kicks off in the Scottish countryside. Who doesn't want to read this?' - Emerald Street

Book Review: Year One by Nora Roberts - Reviewed by (31 Mar 2020)

This is the first book of a brand new trilogy by the talented Nora Roberts. I have no idea how she can write and publish so many books each year the way she does, but it is a fantastic positive for those of us who love her books as it's never a long wait for the next installment. This one is full of action, excitement, murder, magic and mayhem. Across the trilogy we follow the same family through different generations since the apocalypse occurs in the first novel and the world descends into chaos. It's a thoroughly interesting trilogy that has romance, action, magic, battles, alliances, great settings and a fast-paced plot. If you love Nora Roberts or fiction (or both!) then I encourage you to give this series a try.
