|"No one hides from the Empire. They see everything, they know everything."|
After the Fall, one superpower emerged to rule the whole world. The Empire knows everything about everyone, and no one can hide from it. No one except a psychotic vampire mercenary known as Carver, who has fought both for the Empire and against it.
On the edge of the Empire, a wave of Neo Puritanism has stifled Nalina, a fiesty shape-changer, into a passionless marriage. But when rebellion strikes and the terrifying, corrupt Emperor stakes his claim on Nalina, it's Carver she turns to for help.
But she's underestimated the rough soldier of fortune. Far from being a heartless bloodsucker, he's a passionate, loyal man with a dark and painful past. Escaping the all-knowing Empire for the drowned cities of the old world, Nalina's about to learn that passion can be found in the most surprising places.
Praise for After the Fall
"Empire 1: After the Fall by Cat Marsters is an intense and absorbing story that draws the reader in on page one of the prologue. Ms. Marsters cleverly combines her futuristic setting with vampire and shapeshifter themes for a high action-adventure that slows down only long enough to blend in several highly arousing sex scenes."
-- Merrylee, Fallen Angel Reviews
"Cat Marsters has a magnificent voice. She tells a story in beautiful flowing language, with humor and pathos, adventure and love..."
Gold Star Award! -- Marcy Arbitman, Just Erotic Romance Reviews
"As Nalina and Carver run from an exceedingly despicable villain, we find ourselves holding our breath and hoping that they can make it through what seem to be impossible odds. This blend of action, emotion, sex, and just a dash of humor make Empire 1: After the Fall a very entertaining read."
