The Empty Ones

Book 2, The Vicious Circuit - A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Following on the heels of Robert Brockway's comedic horror novel The Unnoticeables, The Empty Ones reveals the next chapter in the lives of a few misfits attempting to fight back against the mysterious Unnoticeables.

The Empty Ones follows Carey and Randall to London where they go to rescue Gus and fight more of these mysterious angel-like creatures, and stumble on a powerful and unexpected ally. Meanwhile, Kaitlyn, who was very nearly beat when last we saw her, continues her fight into the desert of Mexico and the Southwest US, seeking the mysterious gear cult. Once there, she discovers what the gear cult is really up to: trying to 'pin' the angels to Earth, focus their attention here, and get as much of humanity as possible "solved"--which, in their minds, is akin to being saved--and in the process discovers something incredible about herself.

With a snarled lip, The Empty Ones incorporates everything that made The Unnoticeables incredible, but like any good punk band, when you don't think they can get any louder, they somehow turn it up a notch. It's terrifying and hilarious, visceral and insane, chaotic and beautiful.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 11, 2016 – In this gonzo sequel to 2015's The Unnoticeables, a burned-out punk and his unlikely allies continue their battle against bizarre otherworldly creatures. In 1977, Carey and his pal Randall are in London to take in the music scene, but they are instead drawn into an epic clash against the terrifying Unnoticeables, which have infested the city and hide in plain sight. Meanwhile, in 2013, Carey older but no wiser has teamed up with stuntwoman Kaitlyn and her friend Jackie on a quest to destroy Marco Luis, a teen heartthrob turned soulless monster. As the narrative bounces between the two eras, the true scope and horror of the threat are slowly revealed. Facing almost impossible odds, Carey and his companions must risk everything to gain an advantage. Brockway, a senior editor at Cracked, throws caution to the wind in this foul-mouthed, hard-drinking adventure, which reads like a collaboration by Hunter S. Thompson, the Sex Pistols, and H.P. Lovecraft. Kaitlyn describes Carey as "mostly bravado, lies, and perversion," which perfectly sums up the gutter-dwelling vibe of this novel and its down-and-out protagonists.
