Epiphany is a post-apocalyptic story, written by Johno1995.
A plague of epic proportions spreads across the globe. The world collapses into chaos and this story follows the fractured lives of survivors who are in desperate need of a little hope.
The story's primary theme is faith. Characters with many different points-of-view are given clear definition on their own faith, and throughout the story, these characters will feel tested and question their beliefs. Faith, or lack thereof, can steer the cast in varying directions and act as the main driving force -- whether it be faith in a spiritual sense, or faith in themselves and each other.
Another theme is redemption. Flawed humans who have made mistakes, and continue doing so, seek internal resolution for these issues. These characters are broken spirits who attempt to reconstruct their souls into something good from the shattered pieces. Whether a character starts out with nothing to atone for or plenty, they will all go through events that leave them yearning for self-forgiveness. Some will succeed, others will fail.
The final main theme of Epiphany is family. In a world where the concept is a dying artifact, many of the story's major characters come to question that mindset. The definition of what a family consists of is questioned, as well as the relevancy of the family unit.
Epiphany will be separated into three books:
