The Patch Project

After a mysterious disaster erases most of the world, five survivors find themselves in the middle of a post-apocalyptic wasteland. A married couple are trapped in their domestic setting. Two punks wander the wasteland, pushed further west by fears of retribution. A video game designer, used to living the high life in the city, is stranded at a highway gas station.

Not only do they have hunger and loss to deal with, but some of them have developed strange new abilities that they are only beginning to understand. Their interwoven stories explore the human need for purpose and hope for a better world. In this revised edition of Brittni Brinn’s introspective debut, everyone will have to face who they have become in order to survive.

Book 2

A Place That Used to Be

There were three of them, ragged Grafters with dirty clothes and greasy hair. One wore a pair of wire-rimmed glasses. Another was holding Rhonda’s satchel. The third pointed a makeshift spear at Milo’s throat.

Five years have passed since the mysterious Event wiped out most of human civilization. Trading caravans travel between nascent settlements. Lawless scavengers called Grafters prowl the wasteland in increasing numbers.

Rhonda and Milo have made the best of the truncated school building they call home, growing vegetables and making short films to keep themselves occupied. But when Milo suspects a growing illness, the two of them will have to decide: will they stay where they are, or will they make the journey through the dangerous realm of the wasteland?

In this sequel to The Patch Project, nostalgia and hope shape each character’s search for a place to belong in an unforgiving world.

Reviews

“Elegant, clever, and compassionate. Navigating a post-apocalyptic landscape becomes a journey of self-discovery in this unforgettable novel.”

– Elly Blake, New York Times bestselling author of the Frostblood Saga

Where Long Shadows End is best devoured in a single day when you can enjoy the quiet complexity of Brinn’s patchwork post-apocalyptic world, immerse yourself in the effortlessly gorgeous descriptions, and tag along with an engaging cast of survivors both losing and finding themselves along the way. A heartening conclusion to a beautiful series.”

-Shelly Campbell, author of Under the Lesser Moon

“Brinn explores several dynamic relationships all set to a post-apocalyptic backdrop, offering a book full of hope and the courage of humanity during a time of despair, something that can be applied to our own daily lives.”

– Elizabeth J. M. Walker, author of This Night Sucks and The Boy Who Owned the Forest

“The author’s trademarks are all here: a poetically-rendered attention to detail, an aura of mystery and awe that permeates the story from beginning to end, and a cast of fascinating characters trying to make sense of the harsh world around them. Highly recommended.”

– Alexander Zelenyj, author of Songs for the Lost and Blacker Against the Deep Dark
