The power of a mother's love.

When her daughter is stolen by a mutation a mother sets out to kill it with a couple unexpected helpers. This post apocalyptic tale you get all the adventure and excitement you could ever want and then some. A totally great read.

Nuclear fallout and scavenging for supplies aren’t the only things survivors have to worry about in Kyle Van Dongen’s Savage Days!

Opening with their worst fears coming true – the thieving of a child in the night by a monster no one has seen – a harrowing journey is undertaken to stop this monster and keep the
