Stu "A strongly told, well-paced, inspirational story for Christians and nonbelievers alike - (with) scenes of flight and conflict (that) are perfectly, tautly rendered and aptly convey the fear and desolation of the ruined world." – Kirkus Indie Review

At thirty-two years old, police officer Kane Lorusso has just been diagnosed with a strange terminal heart condition, which means with the healthcare industry in shambles, he has no hope of receiving a transplant and his days are numbered. He will never play ball with his son or get to see his daughter married. “That’s it,” he thinks as his wife bows her head in silent meditation. “Pray to the God who disabled me.” Little does he know that God is far from finished with him. On a cool, April morning, the world violently comes to an end in a fury of disease, war, and nuclear destruction. Kane, a bitter agnostic, is torn to his foundation by the realization that the God of the universe has preserved him for a reason. Testing a newfound faith, he must forge alliances with the other chosen: Molly, a young mute; Courtland, an aging professional athlete; and a mysterious Native American boy and his wolf-like companion. Far outnumbered, they are preyed upon by ghoulish, cannibalistic mutants and pursued by a merciless gang of bandits led by a vicious psychopath named Malak, who demented by an unimaginably sinister power, will stop at nothing to see Kane and his friends dead, or worse. Kane finds that the road to redemption is paved equally with terror and hope as he struggles to fulfill God’s purpose and become the man both Heaven and Earth need him to be.

A book about redemption, perseverance, faith, and conviction, Through the Fury to the Dawn is sure to appeal to those who enjoy books packed with high-speed action, adventure, gritty realism, science fiction, and fantasy that will leave them with both a compelling and positive message when they reach the final page. Author Stu Jones wants readers to perceive his book, “As a crossover, and an indication that Christian-themed fiction does not solely have to depict a watered down, candy-coated version of conflict and evil.” Readers will find that very few writers have so far dared to bridge this gap.
