The destruction of California is at hand.
Cassidy Hart and Chris Young have survived a dangerous mission into the heart of Sky City, a secret Omega base hidden deep in the mountains, but their vengeance has come with a price. The dark, ominous cloud of nuclear war threatens to destroy everything they love, and they are forced to make one final stand against Omega’s western invasion force.
San Francisco.
Cassidy and her friends retreat to Alcatraz Island, regrouping with their lethal strike team, the Angels of Death. Their mission: infiltrate the most important Omega base on the west coast, and assassinate everyone they find there, including a new and dangerous enemy, the ruthless Omega leader Veronica Klaus.
The clock is ticking.
Ashes rain from the sky. Cassidy Hart must make a choice.
What is more important? Victory, love or revenge?
Omega is the enemy’s name.
Survival of the fittest is their game.
Cassidy Hart will not stop until she has saved California…but will she be too late?



“He looks at me differently now,” I whispered. “Ever since Sky City. He keeps watching me, like he’s afraid of me.”
“He is,” Uriah answered. “Everyone is.”
I frowned and looked back toward the skyline, quickly fading into shadow.
“Have I changed that much?” I asked.
“We’ve all changed. Hell, the world has.” Uriah raised his hand, his black finger-less gloves stained with soot. I stared at his hand as he moved closer, frozen. He touched my cheek with his finger. “I like the new you,” he said. “It’s different. But it’s real.”
I didn’t move, looking into his coal-colored eyes.
I saw something there. Something familiar.
A reflection of my own soul, perhaps?
“We should go inside,” I said, stepping away, frightened.
In the distance, thunder boomed. I paused, looking behind my shoulder. Uriah looked mildly disappointed, but beyond him, color flashed above the canopy of clouds. I looked to the sky. It was just a single sheet of white and yellow—like lightning flickering through a window. And then it was gone.
“What was that?” Uriah murmured.
I shook my head.
“I have no idea,” I said.
This new, dark world was beginning to frighten me.

This book and series sound really good, I really need to make the time to start reading the series soon! ~ Jeanz

The Soundtrack and Soul of the Apocalypse

If you could choose a song to represent each of your main characters in your novels, which ones would they be?
I love music, so it’s hard to narrow it down to just one single song, but I’ll give it my best shot!

Cassidy Hart: Warriors, by Imagine Dragon. It’s such a fitting song for what Cassidy has become through the course of the series.

Chris Young: Taking Care of Business, by Bachman Turner Overdrive. This just reminds me of Chris’s approach to every situation. He just takes care of business.

Elle: Renegades, by the X Ambassadors. Living like we’re renegades! The perfect song for Elle, for Collapse and her own trilogy.

Uriah True: Another One Bites the Dust, by Queen. Read my books. You’ll see why this just works. * wink *

What are some of your favorite songs/bands who you like to listen to when you’re writing?
I actually write my books with classical music on, but I love, love, love, some certain artists and bands when it comes to representing the world of Collapse. Gotta love Avicci, The Cab, One Republic, and DEFINITELY The Black Keys. The Kongos, Trapdoor Social (shout-out to my friend Miranda for introducing me to them!), AC/DC, the instrumental epic-ness of Really Slow Motion and occasionally a little ZZ Top or Neon Trees. I enjoy listening to Thomas Bergerson, as well, when I’m writing.

So you listen to classical music? What’s your favorite?
I will basically listen to instrumentals of anything. Right now I’m currently listening through everything that Andre Rieu has conducted. I love Johann Sebastian Bach, Beethoven, Mozart and Tchaikovsky. I stand by the belief that classical music stimulates your creativity. It works great for me!
