When the tenuous peace between the pack and the coven is put to the test by the relationship between Farryn and Ash, the cost is their separation. It becomes a time when friendships are forged and broken, a time when discoveries of secrets, long held to protect reputations and indiscretions, are brought forth. Will relationships, legends, and secrets build or destroy those closest? Just how much should a couple be asked to pay to love one another? The Culling examines truths held and lies buried. There will be those within both realms of the supernatural that will survive the truth, but some will not be as fortunate. This is book two in a *serial*. This means that all of the books follow a story arc and cannot be read alone or out of order without confusion.

Carl Sims, a young virologist, discovers a plot hatched by a group of international scientists to cull, in a matter of weeks, two-thirds of the world's population - some 4.5 billion people, by releasing a deadly virus that kills two-thirds of those it infects. Their goal is to reduce Earth's population from an unsustainable seven billion to two billion. What is he to do? Try to stop the conspiracy, or join it? Horrific, yes, but what if this culling could prevent the extinction of some forty percent of our planet's flora and fauna? Or if he was certain it was the only way to prevent an even larger human die-off, incurring significantly more suffering, by the end of this century? Or if he were convinced it represented the only hope for humanity surviving at all? This is at the heart of this thriller, for these viruses do, in fact, exist. Most everything that plagues mankind today - the highest concentration of atmospheric CO2 in 3 million years, escalating extinction rates, habitat loss, fishery collapses, climate change, polar and glacial ice thaws, arable land loss, desertification, aquifer depletions, ocean acidification, unprecedented air pollution, looming famine and social unrest - stems from over consumption which, unchecked, will lead to Earth's sixth mass extinction event. "Robert Johnson's first novel tackles an issue that most in the media, the arts, and entertainment industry--even the environmental community--are afraid to discuss directly: overpopulation. Despite the potential for despair or preachy diatribes, the gravity of the issues is woven into the story with plenty of colorful characters, gallows humor and a suspenseful plot that unravels across continents, making for an entertaining and thought-provoking debut." --New York Journal of Books "This is so real, it is frightening, although the characters are fictional, the story is possible--and very likely. The book will keep you awake nights, thinking about our vulnerability, and worried that we've already gone too far for the planet to survive without a culling." --Pulp Den "Johnson's debut thriller could be more science fact than science fiction. There's a scheme afoot by rogue scientists to release a virulent flu virus and kill two-thirds of Earth's population, a megalomaniacal plot to save the planet from becoming a lifeless rock due to climate change and overpopulation. A scary premise. Get a flu shot. Wash your hands regularly." --Kirkus
