Descent

Episode #3. The machines control our world. It's time we took it back. In the ruins of our world, a new order arose, an order controlled by the very machines humankind created. The end for us came not from a massive global war but from something unthinkable, incomprehensible. The machines simply replaced us and we let them, and so, in the end, humanity went out not with a bang, but with a whimper. No shots fired. No bombs dropped. No cities destroyed. We ended and the machines began—or at least that is what the few human survivors of the machine apocalypse believe.Select Praise for This Mortal Coil. After the Machines:"A gripping tale. Perfectly paced and brilliantly plotted." –Cathy Thompson, author."Stanek's written many good, even great, books. This one's exceptional. Read it!" –Shannon Hale, author."Builds and builds to a crescendo. Part Stephen King, part Suzanne Collins, part Max Brooks, 100% phenomenal!" –David Eastman, author.
