"...Worldender is a deftly crafted work of character-driven apocalyptic fiction that takes its horrific premise a huge step further than your typical apocalyptic read..." — Self-publishing Review

Debut Sci-fi Horror by Nick Nikolov

Lucy Castle is not afraid to take risks as long as the pay is good. But when she accepts a lucrative offer from a tall stranger in a plague doctor's mask, she starts to question her life choices. 

The sky is falling and they have three days to save the world from an alien made bio-weapon turning children into mutated killing machines. 

A girl that has never wanted help from anyone now holds the fate of the planet in her hands.

"This book was an amazing read from start to finish. It has everything that a sci-fi title requires - fleshed out characters each with their own struggles and goals, well-written plot that keeps your attention till the very end, and a great world building to top it off.

"Reading this book played out like a movie - I couldn’t wait to pick it up again and see where the story was heading."

- Goodreads Reviewer


"I devoured this book, and eagerly dove into each chapter with excitement, anxiousness, and a sense of dread that I think Nikolov was trying to evoke. "

- Reviewer


"Aliens and rampaging zombie infection… this is a page turner, not a relaxing read."

- Reviewer


"This book is incredible! Especially for a first-time writer. The characters are well written and fully fleshed out & believable. The world building is great. Even the monsters are nicely realized and freaking scary!"

- Goodreads Reviewer


"Cracker of a book. Great storyline, good strong characters and an entertaining read"

- Goodreads Reviewer


"Nikolov flawlessly blends together sci-fi and a video game feel, culminating in a fascinating fast-paced book that will keep readers engaged until the end."

- Reviewer

"Worldender is a modern sci-fi novel set in our current times but with a twist. The author has to put a lot of effort to research military,police and scientific linguistics and it clearly shows in the novel, to bring an authentic experience. He has also put in the dues to make the novel's characters feel as human as possible, something a lot of sci-fi authors skip, furthermore characters lack the superhero feel of sci-fi models."

- Reviewer

"I really enjoyed reading this, i liked the use of aliens and the horror elements. The story was well done and the characters felt like real people."

I used to read fantasy in high school and play a lot of video games, emphasis mainly on games. First encounter with amazing storytelling was in a game called Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver on a hard-to-come-by Playstation console. You read that right—the very first Playstation. The importance of amazing stories became starkly apparent since that encounter. In the coming years up until graduation from University with a bachelor’s degree in Automation, games were the main source of gripping narratives. Upon entering the workforce, the need to create grew so great, that a change had to be made. The choice being, either suffocate the creative drive or attempt to get good at writing. And here we are. Worldender is my first full length published work. So, after seven years of struggles, two and sometimes three jobs at once, and a lot of hard lessons learned, finally, an actual book that can be read!
