SEASON ONE, EPISODE SIX
Fia Hamill, wife, victim, prisoner--survivor. Cut off from her once loving family, Fia has been devising a plan to leave her abusive police officer husband. Then the planes come, and along with them, a deadly mist.
Like any other day, Fia dreaded her husband Craig coming home from work. All the despair, hurt, pain, and humility are more than Fia can bear alone. For months, she has divulged her secrets to ‘C47CH-22’, an entity on the dark web. But when Craig returns home wearing a gasmask, Fia learns her rural town has been obliterated.
Cut off from the outside world, with no electricity, no transport, and no way of knowing if they are the only ones left, Fia, along with Craig and a small band of survivors wait on the next broadcast, and when C47CH-22’ drops hints of a safe zone, and someone called ‘Crow’, they are desperate to find the truth. Someone is watching, someone who knows more than what the government or media are willing to divulge.
All over the world, from small rural towns to big cities, from Alaska to South Africa, something is happening. Though events differ from place to place, all point to the same chilling outcome: the implementation of a New World Order by the global elite. Their goal—to centralize the world’s power and wealth into their own hands, and to control humanity. But first they need to cull the human population to sustainable levels, and their plans have begun. Wave One of Operation Black Mariah has begun.
Welcome to the world of Marie D. Jones Presents Black Mariah, a harrowing near-future ripped from today’s headlines that dares to look at what might come next. This is a world of conspiracies and cover-ups, of lies and deception, of chaos and confusion, and of small groups of people who realize the only way to survive is to harness the power of the human spirit. To defy and persist. In the wake of the quest for survival, a revolution called “Defiance” is born.
This is a stand-alone story in the Black Mariah Shared World, a collaborative effort by authors from all across the globe whose characters react and respond to the same events, but in their own unique ways. Each story takes the reader on a journey of one of these characters, allowing for multiple perspectives to unfold. The only thing these characters have in common is that they survived Wave One. But will they survive what’s to come?
