Praying Mantises have evolved into the dominant species on Earth, having wiped out humans years ago after a genetic experiment evolved the species into man-sized, super intelligent insects. But they don't just roam the planet aimlessly. The Mantises have taken over our jobs. Kept the generators running, the oil pumping, and the economy in place. They're people, just like us ...Except that they're cannibalistic, blood thirsty nymphomaniacs who love biting the heads off their partners while they mate.

Matthew is a high school history teacher. He does his best to educate the young mantises and tame the savage side of their nature, until the day he comes home to find his wife ready to mate. Anyone who knows anything about Mantises knows that mating is a death sentence for males of the species. But when Matthew's wife partially decapitates him during sex, he crawls out to the woodshed to die, only to find an old haunted chainsaw, possessed by the spirit of his home's dead human owner, who just happens to be an occult sorcerer and serial killer known as The Growler's Phantom. Now resurrected, Matthew vows revenge on his murderous wife, and her new husband Nicko as well as anyone else who gets in his path.

Part Texas Chainsaw Massacre, part Evil Dead, pray this mantis doesn't find you next!

Never mind that such a pregnancy was thought to be impossible, for Roxx and her daughter, Jessi, the penalty is death. Now, she and both daughters need to make it across the Sahara and to the frozen European north lands and freedom.

Follow Roxx, her daughters, and new partner, Trint, as they attempt to evade her youngest daughter's father, who just happens to lead one of the most powerful armies in the world. It is an exciting battle for survival that features robot armies, advanced technology amidst dystopian squalor, a rebel insurgency, and Roxx, who is determined to kill anyone who threatens her daughters.

So, it is Mummy, her two daughters, and Trint, against the world. Those odds suit Roxx just fine.

Still, that is the least of his worries, since for the first time in his life, he had finally found people worth fighting for. And, if it comes down to it, people worth dying for.

Aside from his guns, Joe's greatest weapon is his undying will to survive, and with it, he knows there's one last thing he must do before he leaves this world. One last sin... he must kill.

In the beginning, Joe was a typical 44-year-old white-collar worker living in New York City. That all changed the day of the 'Big Bang'. Most of the city was reduced to rubble, and modern-day outlaws formed groups to besiege the other survivors. Like the animal kingdom, the strong preyed on the weak, and the weak preyed on themselves. Ordinary people had become monsters, and those who were already monsters became Devils. With the rules of survival changed, taking up arms was the only way to live to fight another day.

As for Joe...

On the day the world changed, Joe changed with it.

The violent and sadistic gangs Via’s relentless campaign did not exterminate were driven further and further north towards and into radiation zones in northern Africa, Europe, North America and across Asia. In the southern latitudes, compounds and even townships around them began to flourish under Federation protection, and life seemed as if it might survive.

In a black patch of universe 70,000 trillion light years away, where light from the beginning had yet to reach; a dark chrysalises bloomed. An intelligent life force, long lived but void of awareness of the outside universe, gave birth to a demigod, the first of that life form that could be aware of the outside universe.

He gazed beyond the blackness to the stars and reached for them bending space-time to his will, traveling where he wanted. Searching as he went, not only the wonders of the universe but, the limits to his power. He had no one to tell him what to do and no one to show him how to do it; a child playing in a Pandora’s sand Box of stars.

He learned to inhabit the bodies of different species that he encountered, with no regard to their previous owners, at first wasting their bodies and minds until he learned control. Psychosis, physical and mental deformities, cast by some as sickness and disease and others as demons or spirits, plagued species across swaths of the universe in which he played. Pleasure he had no concept of captured him and he absorbed in himself, all the while, unbeknownst to him, a darker force yet, guided him from the shadow it cast.
