“Author E.T. Gunnarsson’s prose is harsh and visceral, a perfect set of tools for depicting the nightmarish vision of the future that he has crafted with great skill.” – K.C. Finn for Reader’s Favorite 

Literacy for Boys reports that mountains of research show that 75% of 9- to 14-year-old boys self-reported they only sometimes or rarely read for pleasure. And they certainly do not write. E.T. Gunnarsson bucks this trend by releasing his second book, Abandon Us, a prequel to E.T.’s debut book Forgive Us, a story readers call “thrilling, brutal, and completely unique.

Stephanie Chapman, Reader’s Favorite, says, “Readers who enjoy thrillers set in the future filled with civil unrest and its results will enjoy Abandon Us.”

Abandon Us is not a book for the faint of heart. It explores a world rapidly moving toward an apocalypse where multiple events contribute to the downfall of society as we know it. 

A BLOODY CIVIL WAR • A RAPIDLY COLLAPSING ECONOMY • A GLOBAL DEADLY PLAGUE

Twenty-eight-year-old service technician Robert Ashton endures dangerous city streets trying to scrape by. His partner Zilv is his only light in a world enshrouded in polluted darkness.

As society buckles, the pair finds safety in the city’s underworld. Working as a smuggler, Robert builds a new criminal life to keep himself and Zilv fed.

But, the battles from the world above seep down into the underground, forcing Robert to return to the surface. In the hellscape of the Third World War, he endures a nightmarish wasteland of violence and death.

When the apocalypse becomes reality just how hard will a man fight to live?
