Charlie Doyle is a tender-footed, risk-averse academic whose quiet life in the Seattle suburbs is destroyed by an invasion by an unknown alien enemy. Each passing day and increasingly dangerous encounters with hostile invaders and desperate survivors confirm to Charlie that there is no savior in sight. Forced to abandon his reclusive life in search of safety eastward over the mountains, Charlie risks everything to embark on a treacherous journey of a thousand miles through the fallout of a newly dystopian world to find the one person who could save them all and put an end to the war.
Jonas Fogg is a writer. A misanthrope and self-described “utter failure,” he’s resigned to his stagnant though comfortably predictable life writing in his notebooks and working at a newsstand in Central Park. A fantastic cup of house blend drip coffee and a chance encounter with a clairvoyant bum throw Jonas’s life into chaos, confronting him with changes he’d been hiding from for years. On his journey Jonas rediscovers himself, love, friendship and the difference between living and a life well-lived.
