Year One (Chronicles of The One #1)

It began on New Year's Eve.The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsed--and more than half of the world's population was decimated.Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magic rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max. Some of it is unimaginably evil, and it can lurk anywhere, around a corner, in fetid tunnels beneath the river--or in the ones you know and love the most.As word spreads that neither the immune nor the gifted are safe from the authorities who patrol the ravaged streets, and with nothing left to count on but each other, Lana and Max make their way out of a wrecked New York City. At the same time, other travelers are heading west too, into a new frontier. Chuck, a tech genius trying to hack his way through a world gone offline. Arlys, a journalist who has lost her audience but uses pen and paper to record the truth. Fred, her young colleague, possessed of burgeoning abilities and an optimism that seems out of place in this bleak landscape. And Rachel and Jonah, a resourceful doctor and a paramedic who fend off despair with their determination to keep a young mother and three infants in their care alive.In a world of survivors where every stranger encountered could be either a savage or a savior, none of them knows exactly where they are heading, or why. But a purpose awaits them that will shape their lives and the lives of all those who remain.The end has come. The beginning comes next....

    If you ever read a book by Nora Roberts - forget everything you think you know about her writing. Year One is the beginning of something new and EXCITING!!!

    Year One is the first book in a trilogy that is more complex and layered then anything I ever read by Nora Roberts. Instead of a typical trilogy with each book dedicated to a different couple - Year One is the beginning of an EPIC story that seems to span generations.

    Think HIGH fantasy.

    The author introduces an amazing cast during a chilling a

    "The human race is finished, and in its place come the weird and the strange, demons from hell."


    I was excited when I heard about Year One. Roberts's romances may not be my thing, but I did enjoy the first few books of her Naked in Death series, and I've really been in the mood for a dark, post-apocalyptic dystopia. But, sadly, I think what started as a really great dystopian set-up quickly became a very stock urban fantasy novel.

    It's honestly quite jarring how quickly it changes. The first few ...more

    Romance novels are not my thing, so I really haven't read many of Nora Roberts novels. The few I have read in the past, I did enjoy. She's a talented writer. Year One is a bit different from her normal romance with a bit of magic/supernatural added. It's the first book in a dystopian trilogy. It is enough of a step away from Roberts' normal genre that I put it on my TBR list immediately.

    The basics: The world is decimated by a virus. In mere weeks, billions of people around the world are dead. T

    A normal set of events on New Years Eve sets off a catastrophe that slowly turns the world on end. Half of the population is gone, governments lose control, law and order are a thing of the past and magick is unleashed...some good and definitely some dark and evil. The story chronicles the paths of Lana Bingham and her partner, Max Fallon; journalist Arlys Reid and her intern Little Fred; and paramedic Jonah Vorhies and doctor Rachel Hopman, along with others as they make their way to some sembl ...more

    FIVE FANTASTIC STARS!!!

    Wow! This book was so amazing! It all starts with a virus that wipes out a lot of the world’s people with over two billion people are killed in the Doom. This is a story of survivors trying to not only survive but restart civilization. I really cannot think of other things to say that would not spoil things. Heck, I cannot even put something about one of the main plots because it would completely destroy some of the story. So I will leave it that this book is epic. It is a

    I have been mulling over what to rate this. I am not the biggest fan of reviewing books on goodreads but I really want to explain this rating... because I did enjoy this book and will be carrying on the series..

    The reason this book lost two stars for me..

    ~ Tooooo many characters.

    ~ Clunky dialogue

    ~ Strange pacing

    Despite those reasons I really love the idea of this novel. A dystopian setting... very ' oh no the walking dead is about to become a reality minus the zombies ' but with magic as a res
