Special thanks and appreciation goes out to
the editors of the series:
In a world devastated by an apocalyptic event,
the bonds of friendship are tested in the haze of
unrelenting depression, and paranoia.
Will you know who your friends are?
Joel and his friends are on the verge of graduation and excited and optimistic about their futures. But when they
return from a camping trip in the remote woodlands to find themselves faced with a post-apocalyptic world, their
daily lives acquire burdens and terrors hitherto unexperienced.
The Judas Syndrome is an unforgettable portrait of survival against the odds. Joel, the protagonist, is an average
teen whose dreams of entering college in the fall have disintegrated with the rest of the civilized world. Experiencing
a barrage of sinister premonitions prior to a camping trip, Joel struggles to shrug them off as nothing more than
anxiety over the newest cyber-terror, the Grimm Reaper. For months the Reaper has been inundating the airwaves
with threats of mass destruction if world governments do not adhere to his plethora of ridiculous demands. Finally,
he does more than just threaten.
The deed done, the Reaper’s threats now realized, Joel and his small band of friends find themselves alone in a
dying world. Their families are all dead and gone, and Joel’s family home is now their stronghold. Faith and faithlessness are investigated as his ongoing visions prepare Joel for the realization that the worst is far from
over. Prisoners to a darkened sky and toxic earth, the group fights to survive. Through battles staged on their
hallowed ground, through loss and victory, the group meets the Pilate to their Judas, unwittingly setting in motion -
the Judas Syndrome.
