A coronavirus pandemic novel. The year she became pregnant the world was already doomed. The year she gave birth the planet was nearly dead... In the wake of a devastating pandemic that decimated the global population Mainini must save the life of the one girl who appears to be immune to the virus. Dragging the child through the bone-yards of the world, Mainini teaches her how to survive water bandits, End-of-Days religious zealots, cannibal cults, and an infected youth militia. Gone from the world are altruism, compassion, and basic morality. All that remains are the ragged trappings of government, and the death drones of the world's last, but failing, superpower.
To preserve the girl's life, and the last hope for humanity, Mainini is forced to conceal the girl under an all-enveloping dust cloak. To avoid infection she pretends they are infected. But as she grapples with imminent death and a rapidly depopulating world, she creates a new role for herself that is far greater than simple survival. After all, if humanity is ever to be reborn, someone must map the child's genomes... Reviews:... "Can't recall the last time I read an end of days novel so beautifully written or terrifyingly believable,Tragic Harrowing Unforgettable." James Balmain, author of "The Meek Inheritance" - The Scotsman and Glasgow Herald bestseller... " This amazing apocalyptic novel with its female hero and nail-bitingly horrific first chapter had me aghast and enthralled. In prose terms it's as if The Old Testament had been re-written by Harper Lee then edited by Raymond Chandler. Edgy writing, indeed." Vicki Gross, Creative Writers... "2036 The Last Madonna", is a path to Hell, or maybe World War 3, paved with blood and bone. It's terrifying and brutal, yet strangely beautiful and tender." Miriam Golding, Rogue Writers.
