Zombie takeover. Nuclear war. Reversal of the Earth's poles. Pandemic super-flu. The world as we know it could end by any of these means, but it hasn't...yet, which is why it's so fun to read about! Check out this list of thrilling post-apocalyptic fiction.

The young Hunters bring back unwanted news regarding the Freaks, supposedly mindless, bone-crushing monsters that they report are showing signs of intelligence. The two end up on the wrong side of the Elders and are soon banished to Topside, a place even more horrible than Enclave. How long can Deuce and Fade survive with only their hunting skills and a limited knowledge of their terrifying new home, where ferocious Freaks roam freely and unknown dangers abound?
