Sun Bleached Winter

Sun Bleached Winter

RailwayThey survived the apocalypse…but what happens next?

Lionel Morton and his sister, Claire are alone and in danger in a wasteland frozen in nuclear winter. Somehow, they managed to live through the collapse of human civilization, but the real nightmare is just beginning. Taking shelter in an abandoned bunker, they intercept a radio broadcast that promises salvation in “New City” — the supposed last vestige of humanity. Now Lionel and Claire have to make a difficult decision: do they risk their lives fighting to reach a place that may not exist, or try to survive on their own in the terrible cold?

Sun Bleached Winter is a dark, violent story of survival, desperation and loss that explores the truly terrifying reality of the apocalypse in a world where good and evil are meaningless and where killers, monsters and cannibals lurk just over the next hill.

“This is an outstanding novel…I 100% loved Sun Bleached Winter.” – Horror (Link)

“I found myself thinking about what I would do in this situation. Grixti’s writing style perfectly conveys action and emotion…Sun Bleached Winter carries a big impact.” – Rabid Readers Reviews (Link)

Mr. Grixti’s novel is a breath of fresh air in the genre suffocating with the same boring plots and settings. – Geekdom of Gore (Link)
