THE CONTINUANCE AGENCY (The Continuance Saga Volume One)

The Continuance Saga: Volume One

The day the world ended, Daniel was sleeping.

In exchange for some game tickets from his father, Daniel is cleaning the basement. It’s not his idea of fun, but he can’t wait to see the look on his fiancee Colleen’s face when he shows her the tickets.

The only ventilation is from the door at the top of the stairs and it’s hot as an oven. The old sofa is calling his name and it’s surprisingly comfortable, lulling Daniel into a deep sleep.

Something wakes him up. Daniel hears a horrible racket coming from upstairs. It’s his mothers screams. He shakes off the cobwebs of his nap and rushes to help her and falls flat on his face. His legs aren’t working right. He tries it again and finally makes it up the stairs. What he sees is unimaginable.

His mother is kneeling over the body of his father on the kitchen floor. He’s gasping for air, his face is turning black and blood is leaking from his orifices.  Daniel hardly has time to grasp his father is dead before whatever it is takes his mother too.

What could kill so quickly? Could it be chemical weapons? When he first came into the kitchen, out of the corner of his eye he saw a black substance similar to oil withdrawing under the door and back into the vents. Was this what killed his parents?

Daniel doesn’t have time to think about that right now. He has to get to Colleen. He has to make sure she’s alright. She was supposed to be here already. But it’s too late. He finds what’s left of Colleen upstairs in his bedroom.

Now he’s alone. He doesn’t know how long it’s been since the black clouds containing the things came.

Then he receives the letter. The Continuance Agency has invited him to take shelter with them. Who are they? What do they really want? These are some of the questions Daniel asks himself. He is running low on water and supplies and needs to make a decision soon.

This story starts out deceptively normal. Then all hell breaks loose and you’re taken on a ride like a speeding train wreck. From the end of the world to The Continuance Agency at the end of the line, you’ll experience horror upon horror that gets your endorphins pumping.

Once the story takes off, the author doesn’t give you a chance to relax. It’s a short story after all, and he has lots to tell you.

Be careful at the end. It comes to a screeching halt with a heck of a cliffhanger. Adam better write fast. I need to know what happens next in The Continuance Saga. I need to know quick!

I gave this a FIVE. It’s a great beginning to the saga, had me hooked from the first few sentences, and never let me stop until I reached the end.

I just did a review of another short tale by Adam Light. You can read my review of Taken here.

Jack Harden is your average good-old-fashioned American truck driver. You can ask the girl he’s got duct-taped in the back of his cab, she’ll tell you. Oh, don’t worry – it’s okay. His wife knows all about it. She told him to do it.

It’s still free to download until Dec. 20th here.

About Adam Light and where to find him.

I have spent the better part of my life in northeast Florida, but I was born in West Virginia. I was consumed at an early age by an unquenchable thirst for the written word. Words, in general, when I think about it.

I was a quiet bookish kid, but after moving down south I grew into a wild and rebellious teenager. I grew my hair long, became enthralled with heavy metal music, and all the rest.

I’ve mellowed somewhat, but I love life, I love my family, and I love to write stories. I have a mad passion for it.

I am proud of the stories I have written and sincerely hope that readers like myself have enjoyed reading them as much as , and plan to continue tapping away at this keyboard until my fingers won’t move anymore.

Thanks to everyone who has supported my madness so far; I look forward to sharing much more of my mind’s crazy ride with you.
