In this first installment of NY Times bestselling author, Wendy Higgins’s debut adult trilogy, a frighteningly realistic wartime America is brought to life, entwined with searing romantic tension that will leave you eager for more. *** Amber Tate believes the worst thing she’ll suffer in life is dealing with the unrequited love she feels for her brother’s best friend, Rylen Fite. She also believes war is something unfortunate that happens places far, far away from her rural Nevada town. She’s wrong on both counts.
When an unknown organization meticulously bombs major cities in the United States and across the globe, a trickle-down effect spreads to remaining towns at an alarming speed—everything from food and water sources to technology and communications are compromised. Without leadership, the nation is split between paralysis and panic, but Amber isn’t one to hide or watch helplessly. She’s determined to put her nursing skills to use, despite the danger, even if it means working alongside the man she can never have.

Does this woman ever disappoint? Tut-tut! Curb your tongue, Negative Nancy. It’s a rhetorical question.
Wendy Higgins rocks socks and knocks boots once again with this baby. My heart has been stolen in what certainly is another ‘my book boyfriend is hotter than your book boyfriend’ series.
Taking a step away from the supernatural Sweet Series, Unknown is a sci-fi story with a kiss of apocalyptic WTH on the side. Suddenly the potato farm region of Nevada is a place where something other than meth labs and tubers flourish. Sing praise with me because it makes hot soldiers and sows the seeds of unrequited love too. Can I get a hallelujah?
Unknown is told in two parts: ‘before the end’ and ‘after the beginning of the end’. The storycrafting of this novel sets the stage for the evolving global events combined with the coming age story of Amber Tate; who has grown up in one world and is being forced to come to terms...
As Unknown opens, we meet the Bahntan, a creature who's people plan on destroying the world's civilization, purging the world of billions of people, and turning humans into slaves. The leader is torn, but ultimately knows what he has to do.

In an instant everything changes. Tater and Rylen decide to enlist in the Army and Air Force. Over the next few years, Amber keeps in constant contact with Rylen through letters and emails, harboring her secret feelings for him and hoping that...
Wow! What a ride. This was definitely the 1st book in a series. Honestly, at the end I have way more questions than answers. I was not expecting the angst surrounding the MCs. I thought with it being the end of the world, I was safe from wanting to throw my kindle…lol. The world building was amazing as is expected with Wendy Higgins. I’m a sucker for RNs in a story, since I’m a nurse when I’m not reading. The characters were authentic and I am dying to know what the heck is going on. I. NEED. ANSWERS. I don’t know why I did this to myself. We have to wait a whole year! GAH!!!!!!
Exactly, definitely a 1st book. Wendy Higgins is a trusted author and I am already eager to see what’s going to happen next in this world. The setting is interesting because it’s not that far fetched. This isn’t some far and distant unheard of place, the book is set in what could be modern day America. The...
