The Lonesome Road
An Enticing Supernatural Dystopian Fiction
Looking for the last remains of human life, a lonesome wanderer must find his identity and the reason for his journey.
The fallen Earth holds secrets, an ancient war that will show him he is not alone. With old forgotten feelings of mistrust and sorrow, the Wanderer will have to navigate his path and remember his past.
The journey is long, filled with thorns and friendly people with hidden agendas. And unfortunately, not all have his best interest at heart.
The Wanderer will have to stay neutral and true to his path if he wants to uncover the truth. But all things come with a price, and the cost might be his soul.
Life as we know is gone. The once vivid city now stands abandoned. Earth became a wasteland, stripped of all life. Broken, confused, and in a desperate search for answers, one person still roams its desolate remains.
The Wanderer has no memories, no recollection of the events that led to the end of the world. All he sees are deserted buildings and the smoke that covers the sun.
While taking shelter in an abandoned house one night, the last man on Earth gets a knock on his door. He finds an unexpected guide in a woman who feels familiar.
Will he choose to keep traversing these lands, lost as before, or will he take her guidance to find the answers his heart so deeply desires?
The Wanderer wishes to find another one of his kind. But when his wish is granted, he soon realizes that the truth comes with a price: his soul. Are we truly free, or is destiny pulling the strings of our life choices?
"An enticing and intriguing tale! I found myself wanting to know more about the Wanderer as he struggled to learn more about himself and understand his role in a post-apocalyptic setting." -Alex Williams, Editor.
