John F.D. Taff’s supernatural epic, The Fearing, concludes in Book Four: Earth & Ember as maniacal leader Tim Jacoby solidifies his militaristic control over his followers by choosing who will live and who will die.
With a new destination in sight, survivors fleeing the encroaching darkness that’s devouring everything in its path arrive at Graceland to re-establish society. But it could also change it forever.
And as humanity’s extinction appears on the horizon, Adam and Jelnik contemplate their mysterious roles in the end of all things. Under a silver arch, they confront all that remains of humanity and, together, gather to face what waits within the darkness.
Everything ends here.
Praise for John F.D. Taff and The Fearing:
“The Fearing isn’t only John F.D. Taff’s best book to date, it’s the kind you put on the shelf reserved for the ones that really did something to you, emotionally, intellectually, physically. A modern master at play..” – Josh Malerman, Bram Stoker Award®-nominated author of the New York Times bestselling Bird Box
“Of the current breed of authors riding the wave of digital liberation, John Taff is a standout talent. Literary, affecting, chilling, and indicative of that old-school mentality meets new-school daring.” – Kealan Patrick Burke, Bram Stoker Award®-winning author of The Turtle Boy, Kin and Jack & Jill
“John F. D. Taff has rapidly become one of my favorite writers in the horror genre. His horror is grounded in our day-to-day lives, in our families, our work, our most private thoughts. His stories vibrate with emotion and life and his prose is cathartic, deeply satisfying, like popping the bubbles in bubble wrap.” – Ray Garton, Grand Master of Horror and author of Live Girls and Ravenous
