Publisher's Summary

They called it the Event.

The Event changed everything. The earthquakes came first, including the Big One, shattering the Pacific Rim and plunging the world into chaos. Then, the seas came, the skies opened, and the never-ending rain began. But as bad as that was, there is something worse.

The Rising has begun.

A lone man who abandoned the world for his addictions searches a waterlogged Austin for something...anything to cling to. Little does he know that something else searches for him.

In the Sonoran Desert, the downtrodden of the world search for a better life north of the border, only to see the desert become an ocean - an ocean that takes life and gives death.

In the woods of Alabama, survivors escape to Fort Resistance, but soon discover that it isn’t just the horrors of the deep places of the world that they need to fear but rather a new and more deadly pestilence that has grown in their own ranks.

In England, it’s too late to fight, and all that’s left is to survive. One man reaches for his own humanity, but what to do when humanity is an endangered species?

And in the Pacific, He is rising.

In The Abyssal Plain: The R’lyeh Cycle, authors William Holloway, Michelle Garza, Melissa Lason, Brett J. Talley, and Rich Hawkins have created a timely and uniquely modern reimagining of the Cthulhu Mythos.

Cthulhu himself would hate this 😭😭😭

I was so excited for this book, but it has to be the worst narrated, worst set out, worst plot of any book I've ever listened to... I forgot what was happening because I connected with NO characters. one minute I'm somewhere, the next minute I'm somewhere else (won't spoil the plots) but you can tell how much I hated this book because I'm taking the time to write this...please don't waste your money or credits!!!

Dark Future

Dang... unique mosaic of stories that carry the Lovecraftian concept of the rise of the ancient one in our modern day. If you are fascinated with the lore and a “what if” situation play out then this is a book with you. It is definitely of a survivor piece.
