Brilliant and dazzling, author Donna Burgess's hit novel Solstice takes us to the end of the world, where things are much darker and harder than they are now.

Rating: 4.2 stars over 23 reviews
Price: 2.99
On the eve of winter Solstice, a massive flash envelopes the Earth and then there is nothing. The sun no longer shines and civilization is plunged into unending darkness. Those exposed to the mysterious flash have changed—they have become bloodthirsty, cunning, and determined to devour anyone who is not infected.

They are Ragers.

In Sweden, uneasy travelers Tomas an architect, his young son, Christopher, and university student Melanie, hear a broken broadcast. There is hope. Something called Sanctuary waits, but it is thousands of miles away, somewhere on the shores of the British Isles.

Meanwhile, in a London supermarket, Stu, a high school English teacher from the States finds himself stranded along with a handful of students on a senior trip. Outside, hoards of hungry Ragers await, ready to tear them limb from limb. Their only hope is to find Sanctuary.

Solstice is a tale of hope, terror, survival, and finding love at the end of the World.

Reviews: "I loved this book! It was a perfect book of imperfect characters! I didn't always like all their decisions, for instance choosing to move around when it's obvious that it makes more sense to find a place to hide, especially when you have a small child. Still, the romance, the grief, the horror were all done so perfectly that I know it's going to be awhile till I get this one out of my head. I did think the author, Donna, could have let a couple more of the characters live, as one in particular was pretty heartbreaking."
