Nick and the boys return from the summer’s last hunting trip to find the streets empty, the beachfront and park abandoned, and the windows of their own homes boarded shut.
The hunters have become the hunted, in an apocalyptic plague that pits man against beast—very tiny beasts. And Nick is determined to keep his strength, courage and family alive during what could very well be the last winter of their lives.
Praise for WAITING OUT WINTER:
"...Packs a huge punch that belies its size ...worthy of mention are Owen's skill at toying with reader expectations and the unyielding tension throughout the story from the first sentence to the very last." --Shroud Magazine Book Reviews
"...an amazing story ...this has become one of my favorites. It's suspenseful, creepy and very descriptive. If you're looking for a fun read that leaves you feeling a little uneasy, I highly recommend Waiting Out Winter." --The Crow's Caw
"Owen uses the [claustrophobic apocalypse survival tale] to produce a taut, tense, and often sad tale of loss and desperation... that will both haunt and break your heart. I can't recommend it enough." --October Country
