“The power of friendship can overcome many obstacles,” he says, “and the feeling of no matter how rotten you act, sometimes we are all given a chance to redeem ourselves.”

In his new science fiction novelA Breath Before Sunrise” (published by AuthorHouse), author Jamie Horwath continues the story begun in a previously-published short story about a group of explorers in a futuristic, post-apocalyptic world.

Bear is a Collector, tasked with bringing back Observers from the surface of a war-ravaged world. A mysterious enemy destroyed the planet and humanity had no choice but to burrow into the safety provided by the vast underground of the Earth. After spending a year on the surface and discovering the life humanity lived before the war, Bear begins to think for himself and develops and understanding of free will.

Feeling disgust for the patriarchal world of the underground, Bear becomes defiant and decides to remain on the surface. The Elders send up two close friends of Bear to bring him back. Caught up in a battle between light and darkness, the trio learns that our adult life mirrors our memories.

“A Breath Before Sunrise” operates on many themes and levels, but Horwath is most proud of the simple-yet-powerful concept of friendship. “The power of friendship can overcome many obstacles,” he says, “and the feeling of no matter how rotten you act, sometimes we are all given a chance to redeem ourselves.”
