In new releases, the thriller meets survival story 'After the lights go out' by Australian author Lili Wilkinson.
What happens when the lights go out, after what might truly be an apocalyptic event? How do you stay alive? Who do you trust? How much do you have to sacrifice? The answering story is utterly terrifying, but also filled with family, hope, love and possibility.
Seventeen-year-old Pru Palmer lives with her twin sisters, Grace and Blythe, and their father, Rick, on the outskirts of an isolated mining community. The Palmers are doomsday preppers. They have a bunker filled with non-perishable food and a year's worth of water. Each of the girls has a 'bug out bag', packed with water purification tablets, protein bars, paracord bracelets and epipens for Pru's anaphylaxis.
One day the power goes out at the Palmers' house and in the closest town. No one knows why. All communication is cut too and It doesn't take long for everything to begin to unravel. In town, supplies run out and people get desperate. The sisters decide to keep their bunker a secret. The world is different now; the rules are different. Survival is everything, and family comes first.
