A major release in the New York Times bestselling One Second After series, set in an alternate America rebuilding after an electromagnetic pulse, this is William R. Forstchen's The Final Day.

Since the detonation of nuclear weapons above the United States more than two years ago, the small town of Black Mountain, North Carolina has suffered famine, civil war, and countless deaths. Now, after defeating a new, tyrannical federal government, John Matherson and his community intend to restore their world to what it was before the EMP apocalypse. For the most part, they are succeeding.

This period of relative stability doesn’t last long. A new, aggressive government announces that it’s taking over and ceding large portions of the country to China and Mexico. The Constitution is no longer in effect, and what’s left of the U.S. Army has been deployed to suppress rebellion in the remaining states. John fears he and his town will be targets.

General Bob Scales, John’s old commanding officer and closest friend from prewar days, is sent to bring John into line. Will John and his people accept the new, autocratic regime? Or will revolution rip the fledgling nation apart at the seams?

Months before publication, William R. Forstchen’s novel One Second After was cited on the floor of Congress as a book all Americans should read. This third book in the series immerses readers once more in the story of our nation’s struggle to rebuild itself after an electromagnetic pulse wipes out all electricity and plunges the country into darkness, starvation, and death.

    This is one of my favorite series. This is book number three in the series and I highly recommend reading them in order. It is a very good read. I had a hard time putting it down.
  • The greatest fiction written

    By Major Gene
    If anyone can read all three of "The Day" books without a box of tissues, knowing that the events written about could actually happen must not have a heart!!!
  • Great ending!!

  • A let down

    By iFester
    So sad. Was really trying to love this book much like the previous 2 in the series however it just fell completely short. Should have been left with just 2, would have been better than this. Sorry.
  • One year after

    Great series. Something everyone should read and give some thought to.
  • Final Day

    By Roadshadowww
    Was glad to see this book was on its way... hard to explain how good I felt One Second and One Year really were. Simple words for these two moving works of art. Final Day for me, took way too long to lift-off and then try to soar with the other two. An ok read and a must if you've enjoyed this story so far.
  • Decent ending

    By Biff...
    Although not a great as one second after, the author makes a decent attempt at closing out the series. Looking forward to a new story maybe, ( how China gets kicked out ).
  • Great read despite snooty critic's review

    By AkAzArAl
    If you're tired of corrupt government getting even more corrupt... this book provides relief. The Publisher Weekly review pulls the predictable, but typical "right wing bad" review - they can smooch it. Great book.
