Dusk of Humanity by M.K. Dawn - Book Tour + Giveaway


Dusk of Humanity
The Decay of Humanity Series: Book 1
by M.K. Dawn

Genre:
SciFi Thriller, Horror 

An asteroid brought about the destruction of the world…in a way no one
thought possible.

After the death of her parents, Sloan Egan left their Montana ranch
determined to make a difference in the world. Now a prominent surgeon
with an exceptional career in her future, life has turned out exactly
as she expected. Until a government summons arrives with an order to
report to Fort Hood for a top-secret weekend retreat.

Major Lee Archer’s reassignment as head of military operations at The
Bunker felt more like a prison sentence than a promotion. To make
matters worse, he’s been assigned to babysitting detail, as a group
of the country’s most brilliant young minds come together to test
the vitality of the cutting-edge fallout shelter he commands.

But the retreat was nothing more than a ploy. One devised to safeguard
the future of humanity, as a catastrophic event renders the world
above uninhabitable.

Or so they’ve been led to believe.

Those in charge have a secret. One so horrifying they would do anything to
keep it concealed. Because what lurks beyond The Bunker is deadlier
than anyone could have ever imagined.

And it’s only a matter of time before it finds a way in.

As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?

What inspired you to write this book?
-- Dusk of Humanity came to me late one afternoon while I was driving the family home from a birthday party. Everyone was asleep and was looking up at the sky and thought, what if there was an asteroid? What if a group of survivors lived in a government bunker. The book morphed from there and became the wild ride it is today.

-- My first novel is a fantasy titled: The Nysian Prophecy. Coming up with the title was agonizing. I didn't know
