In the wake of SINGULARITY, the epic conclusion to the Infinite Timeline, only one question remains. Are you hungry for more?!
Of course you are! And to that end, I have good news, HUNGER: THE COMPLETE TRILOGY has been released today! That’s right, this bad boy is three novels released as one Mega-Novel. You might be wondering why the heck I decided to release the third Hunger book, FAMINE, as part of a larger book, rather than as a standalone novel. Okay, maybe you aren’t wondering. But I’m going to pretend you are and explain.
When HUNGER and FEAST were released way back when, I had so many books coming out that I decided to experiment with pen names. HUNGER and FEAST were released under the pen name Jeremiah Knight. And guess what?! They didn’t sell as well as they would have under my actual name. Shocker. And in audio, they sold even slower. So, when it came to releasing the third and final Hunger book, it made sense to bring them all under the Robinson name and start fresh from a sales perspective. And we’re doing it with your budget in mind! The e-book and audiobooks will cost the same for all three books, as Book 3 would have on its own. The print book will cost more, but that’s just because there are more physical pages. Our profit will remain the same. So if you have the first two books, please know that publishing this way is not a money grab.
And now that I’ve explained all of that super exciting information…on to the good stuff!
THE HUNGER TRILOGY!
HUNGER is one of my favorite novel concepts. There is so much room for post-apocalyptic creativity that my imagination really enjoys hanging out in this world, even if it is a pretty frightening place. Getting back into the story after a few years away was like visiting family. There might have been a few awkward moments as I reconnected with the characters, but it wasn’t long before we were back in sync and having chaotic fun. Whether you read all three books back to back, or jump straight in at FAMINE, I think you’ll agree that I took full advantage of every potential opportunity for madness. And if you’re a fan of my books, you know that’s a good thing.
In fact, I’ll let you in on a little secret. I’ve always loved HUNGER so much that I wrote a screenplay based on the series, and not only did it come out awesome, it’s also been in development for a feature film for more than a year. Not going to say any more than that. It might very well be in “development hell” now, but the possibility for a film is real. If you’d like to see that, please help make the HUNGER: THE COMPLETE TRILOGY a hit by spreading the word and posting reviews. Getting some real attention on this book can only help things.
Now, on to the story!
Desperate to solve a global food shortage, ExoGen scientist Dr. Ella Masse oversees the creation and release of RC-714, a gene that unlocks millions of years of adaptation and evolution, allowing crops to use long dormant junk DNA to rapidly adapt to any environment. The world’s food supply grows aggressively, occupying every inch of earth, no matter how inhospitable. World hunger is averted. Humanity flourishes. RC-714 is digested, absorbed…and passed on.
The Change affects small, fast breeding mammals first. They multiply with the same aggressive speed as the ExoGen plants, but a new, insatiable hunger drives them to violence. War between species breaks out. When RC-714 reaches humanity, along with every other large creature on the planet, civilization implodes. Every living thing that consumed the ExoGen crops begins to adapt to a world full of predators, accessing genes dating back to the beginning of life itself.
Peter Crane and his son Jakob survive the Change, living in their family farmhouse and eating non-ExoGen food from a biodome, one of many provided by Ella Masse, who discovered the ramifications of her breakthrough too late. The pair ekes out a living in a world full of monsters, surviving until Ella shows up on their doorstep with her daughter, pursued by desperate predators and men alike.
As the farmhouse falls under attack, Crane learns that the end of humanity, of life on Earth, can still be averted: if Ella Masse and her daughter survive, and if they make it to the other side of the country without being captured…or consumed.
Jeremy Robinson merges the science of Michael Crichton with the horror of Stephen King in this fresh take on the post-apocalypse, creating a true worst-case scenario for GMO crops that will have people reading labels before eating their next pepper, tomato, or kernel of corn.
*HUNGER (book 1) and FEAST (book 2) were previously released under the pen name, Jeremiah Knight. FAMINE (book 3) has not been previously published in any format.
HUNGER is available in paperback and Kindle e-book, HERE.
Hardcover is ALSO available from B&N, HERE.
The audiobook edition is the premiere way to experience Hunger: The Complete Trilogy. If you think your inner narrator does an adequate job reading books, well, then you haven’t heard the ridiculously talented Jeffrey Kafer bring these characters to life. He embodies these characters, makes my humor funnier, and makes my inner voice sound like a screaming goat in heat. If you’ve only been reading my books, give the audiobooks a chance. I’ve talked to a lot of fans who gave the audiobooks a try and never looked back.
