Lyrian Wallace was only ten years old when the Malevolence struck on October 10, 2056. She thought the next decade had numbed her to the grief, the death, the bots, and the daily struggle for survival. She lost her parents when they became Sleepers, but like everyone else, she had pieced together a new family. Lyrian was almost content when the Alliance began taking them . . .

The world always took things away from her. She could only live for today and never dared to hope for any heaven. But when her circumstances change, Lyrian must choose how she might live for both this life and the next.

Tips for Surviving the Haunt

In the middle of the 21st century, the devastating Malevolence computer virus has left wide swaths of abandoned homes in the suburban rings around cities. These “Haunts” are stalked by crazed, zombie-like robots that violently attack humans. On most occasions, surviving humans tend to avoid venturing near Haunts. But, if you do need to undertake a mission into one of these dangerous areas (like the characters in my Christian dystopian novel “WoE Is Us”), here are some tips to help you make it out alive:

Tip #1: Travel after midnight. Yes, the Haunt is usually safer in the middle of the night. After ten years without maintenance, many of the bots lurking in the Haunt have batteries that no longer hold a charge. They rely upon solar power to operate and recharge during the day. By midnight, most bots have entered a suspended state to preserve energy and wait for morning. Though stumbling upon a sleeping bot in the midnight shadows of the Haunt may provide an unnerving surprise, it’s far safer than encountering the same waking bot in the daylight. NOTE: Some bots still have strong batteries, so don’t assume every bot you meet will be asleep.

Tip #2: Keep it quiet. Noise attracts bots, which can be problematic for traveling the Haunt. For example, using a gun to defend yourself in the Haunt could bring a hundred bots down on top of your location. Using specialized weaponry like lightning bugs (which fire special electrodes to overload the circuitry of bots to incapacitate them) is highly recommended. If necessary, using a large knife to sever critical components within the bot’s neck and torso can be an effective, if dangerous, option. If you must use a gun, flee the area after firing the weapon as quickly as possible. NOTE: Noise can also wake nearby sleeping bots.

Tip #3: Get in and out. Don’t stay long. Lingering in the Haunt will eventually prove disastrous.

Tip #4: Pray. Seriously. You can use all the help you can get!

By using the tips above, your visit to the Haunt near you has a fighting chance of success. To see how one group’s trip to the Haunt went, check out “WoE Is Us.”
