The Company by Chuck Graham

About the Book

A meteor strike plunges the world into darkness. A stranger to the village of Brigos Glen restores power and light, supplied by three businesses, known as “The Company,” located beyond the forbidden mountains. The stranger reveals a plan so the Brigons can maintain the power and share the light with outlying territories, which remain shrouded in darkness.

Now, seventy years later, The Company summons six Brigons, including the young engineer Sam Mitchell, to attend a conference in the mountains of the forbidden Outlands.

Responsible for compiling a report about Brigos Glen from his five companions, Sam learns how managers and villagers largely ignored the plan or compromised it to self-interest, forsaking their duty to share the light. They also took for granted The Company responsible for generating and transmitting the power.

In an ordeal fraught with failure, revelations, and judgment, Sam discovers the true identity behind The Company and learns the fate that may befall Brigos Glen . . . that is, unless he can stop it.

My Thoughts

The Company is a cleverly written allegory. It is the story of a small village who seem to be the only ones left in the world after meteor hit in what has become known by the villagers as the Last Day. That meteor hit shrouded the world in darkness.

The people of Brigos Glen are struggling with their lives when they are offered help by a stranger that restores their power and light.

This story is filled with suspense, believable characters and will keep you reading wanting to know the outcome!
