Wilfred had been thinking about ending it all, but then it all ended before he could.The apocalypse came in a matter of hours. Not from weather, not from nuclear strikes, but something far worse. Mankind lost its dominance over their own planet in a short afternoon, and now Wilfred is one of but a handful of survivors who must make sense of the catastrophic nightmare world that they once called their own.While the Earth is many things after the end, it is anything but the sole domain of humanity. As Wilfred and other survivors discover, their planet was not subject to just one world-ending event, but several. The undead roam the once proud metropolisis, and inhuman beasts stalk the countryside. The physical fabric of reality itself is twisted beyond repair in some places as unnatural distorions that warp physical laws appear across the landscape, and even a simple jog across an empty street can prove fatal to the unwary.The ones who died in the initial catastrophes never had to face the horrors that followed. And for Wilfred, a man who found no purpose in life before the apocalypse, what is there to be found after?

The characters are interesting, no really stupid ones and they all seem like sane people trying to live through the apocalyse

The action is nice and intense, people act like real people, and mysteries and apocalyps' abound. This is a good story.

This is the sort of story I read on here and wish was printed off as a big ol' book. Mostly so that then I would have something to physically smack my friends with when they come round and tell them to read. 

An excellent story of an everyday person in an extraordinary end of world scenario. I may only be 12 chapters in at the time of review but they have held up superbly, and the mere fact I take every available opportunity to read on made me feel it was an appropriate time to review. 

It reads like a friend telling you a story and the narrative is reminiscent to the likes of David Wong or Jonathon Wood, with a first person that is depressingly relatable experiencing events I, personally, would never wish to encounter. 

Eager to finish this story and see what else the author has to offer.

Take the horror tag seriously. This is the most fucked up, well written story on Royalroad.

 

This is a mystery apocalypse story. It has some eldritch elements and it has very good atmosphere. My skin crawls while I'm reading it and makes me want to get a machete and a few high powered firearms in case this happens irl.

The characters act in a reasonable fashion, it's well written and more confusing than season 5 of Lost, which in this case is a good thing.

I don't want to continue reading because it creeps me out but I won't be able to help myself.

I always love a good apocalypse story, but the ones that i remember and stick to me are these kinds, grimdark is the way a true apocalypse is suppose to be, no one should be safe and the answers sparse, good charactors keep us hooked to their life and death but trying not to stay attached too much.

Here we go with a fun story.

I just finished chapter 3 and am hooked.  A refreshing change to start a new story without a lot of instant description of the characters looks, clothes, likes and personal sexual preferences.  I'm hoping it stays that way.
