Forgive Us


The war between nature and humanity has no winner. Humanity's drive for energy and technology was its downfall. Forgive Us is a thrilling, unpredictable, and wonderfully complex story that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

As the story takes off, moving back and forth in time, and vividly depicting life after a set of apocalyptic events caused by human waste and consumption, it shows brutal examples of human violence, hate, and apathy depicting how anyone can be turned into an unfeeling monster, and that dehumanization is the easiest way to allow the mind to kill.

Oliver, a lone rider bearing the scars of the old world, flees east into the untamed lands beyond the Rocky Mountains. He spearheads the frontier and carries the burden of civilization into the new world, destined to rebuild from the ruins.

London, a veteran of the wasteland, shields his adopted daughter Rose from an unforgiving world. They live in a new age that'll soon draw them into the bitter feuds between fledgling nations. No matter what, London will sacrifice anything for Rose. His struggle will determine who she will become and if she survives in the new world.

Simon, a man born and raised on a great space station called the Arcadis Station, faces the onset of revolution. In the shadows, he will fuel the flames of freedom.

Reminiscent of The Gunslinger and The Stand, E.T. Gunnarsson's Forgive Us provides an action-packed intro for those wanting to explore adult horror dystopian fiction

Reedsy Discovery

I was pleasantly surprised by “Forgive us”. It read very much like a western and was reminiscent of 'The Gunslinger' by Stephen King. Strange lands, creatures, and ways of life made this a sci-fi that haunts us to wonder what will become of us in the near future. This book went very dark very quickly, keeping me on the edge of my seat. The world is extremely high stakes so be careful whom you become attached to. The multiple POV was well done and rotated in a way that made sense. The chapters were short enough that we do not become overwhelmed with information regarding a certain POV. I had much more fun with this than originally anticipated. There were a few scenes that gave me chills, making it a good horror reading experience. Love the Doomstorms.
