“Jaros has crafted such a vividly ravaged world that I could almost feel the grit on my fingers as I turned each page.”
—Marcus Pelegrimas, author of the Skinners series
“Intense, amazing….A superb, brilliant thriller.”
—Bill Evans, author of Category 7
James Jaros envisions a world ruined beyond our darkest imaginings—an Earth devastated by plague and environmental collapse—and offers a gripping tale of survival and sacrifice after the apocalypse. His extraordinary Carry the Flame continues where his acclaimed Burn the Sky left off, as a ragged band of survivors—including a mother and her two daughters—flee the brutal soldiers of a bloodthirsty religious cult, only to fall captive to a mad despot who rules with fear and monsters in a nightmare city in the wasteland. Jaros, a nom de plume of acclaimed thriller author and four-time Emmy Award-winning investigative reporter Mark Nykanen, has created an extraordinary post-apocalyptic novel that combines the visceral thrills of Mad Max with the chilling insights of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale and Oryx and Crake. Carry the Flame is a powerful vision of a dystopian future on a par with Cormac McCarthy’s The Road and Stephen King’s acclaimed classic, The Stand.
