One sure sign of the Apocalypse is devastated cities. These images linger in our mind, showing awful visions of what the world could be like. When disasters strikes, people are drawn to the reports and stories that come in the aftermath, and they stare, sure it’s not real.
After the Apocalypse, there won’t be any doubt. Scenes like the one in the excerpt below will become common-place and another challenge for survivors still searching for food, water, and family. For the groups that have to travel into these apocalyptic landscapes, the danger will be at incredible levels. Avoiding these deadly landmarks of a world gone by should be a priority, but for those who have to venture inside, heavily armed and with a large amount of fighters is the best way to go.
"Seven very gifted survivors are destined to rebuild their country after a nuclear apocalypse...If they can stay alive long enough to find each other. Impossible to put down." - The Review Blog
“You should watch your six on this run… closely.”
“You know something I don’t?”
She shook her head, daze clearing. “It’s just a feeling about a bad decision.”
He smiled uneasily. “We make those everyday now.”
They laughed halfheartedly, but he took her words to heart. “I’ll keep you out of the ugliness as much as I can.”
She nodded, warming. “I know that. I need a map.”
Adrian pulled one from his pocket, putting the tape player away. “We’ll let the camp get out of sight, and then we’ll head down. You’re solo again, on this run. Be in the mess in half an hour.”
He turned from her many question - like what happened if she couldn’t convince them to come out and at least talk. She went slowly back to her blazer, looking from the map to what used to be Little Rock, Arkansas.
There were no landmarks to use, the entire city was crumbled on top of itself like broken Lego blocks and it was impossible to tell where one building started and another ended. There was nothing she could see to navigate by, except the Arkansas River, which was literally surrounding Little Rock on three sides due to post-war flooding. That ugly mass of scummy liquid, which she knew they would have to cross when they were done here, would be a nightmare for Safe Haven. Cars, homes, businesses, and bodies were a part of the riverbed forever and it would be nasty, diseased water, full of awful surprises.
