We named it the rapture virus.
Then it killed us.
Ben Gardiner used to be an expert on virtual reality. But the world he knew is gone – and now he’s not even sure about real reality. Heaven and Hell – whatever they are – seem to be strangely closer to the physical world. He’s glimpsed what may as well be Heaven. He doesn’t comprehend it, but it’s worth living for.
When he’s chained to a tree and left to die by a guy playing demon hunter, Ben realizes that the door to Hell might also exist – and someone is trying to pry it wide open.
One thing’s for sure: in a world scourged by the rapture virus, it’s going to take every ounce of his will to live, his puzzle-solving brain, and his courage to survive the endgame.
Endgame is the first book set in Susan Kelly’s Endgame Universe.
The book is post-apocalyptic fiction, but it was entirely fresh. I didn’t find the same old tropes that populate such works. ~ Rob Easton, Amazon 5-star review.

Great read, so much so that I missed a few bus stops. Can’t wait for the next one. ~ Amazon Customer, 5-star review.
The plot dragged me in so that I read this at top speed to see what happens next. I am going to read it again more slowly and enjoy the many beautifully written interludes. ~ Bil, Amazon 5-star review.
