Teaser:

In the nuke-altered region of the Great Lakes, Ryan and his group face the spectrum -- from the idyllic to the horrific -- of a world reborn. Against the battered shoreline of Lake Michigan, an encounter with an old friend leads to a battle to save Milwaukee from a force of deadly mutant interlopers -- and to liberate one of their own.

Back Cover:

Black Dawn

The nuclear cataclysm that maimed America altered the rules of existence. The new reality guarantees a grim battle for survival, but the higher human instinct to exist in peace and good will lives on. Legends endure and Ryan Cawdor is a warrior of his time. When the good fight needs to be won, Ryan and his band take a stand.

A Harrowing Hope

In the nuke-altered region of the Great Lakes, Ryan and his group face the spectrum -- from the idyllic to the horrific -- of a world reborn. Close to enclaves of peace and sanctuary, Deathlands' most distorted spawn of humanity, cannibals, spread terror. Against the battered shoreline of Lake Michigan, an encounter with an old friend leads to a battle to save Milwaukee from a force of deadly mutant interlopers -- and to liberate one of their own.Deathands promises nothing but demands its pound of flesh...

Captures Deathlands
by Timbermountain
I enjoyed the read. Good amount of retribution for bad guys, great suspense before we got there.

Helfer's Debut DL novel
by Maximus
This is Helfer's debut DL novel and he more than nailed it.

Not only did he quickly show how well he knew the characters, but also their brutal, savage world. Also, bringing back one of Lawrence James' characters, the tall Native American from wayyyyyy back, made this an eye-opener and a major surprise for this reader. This, along with numerous other mentions of past books by the original author, was done with such pizzazz, and it showed the fans in a brilliant way that he has done his homework.

Not like certain other authors who write like they never read the original books to see how the characters act, and just what kind of muties and stuff roam this section of the world. After the half-assed book before this one, this one shined even more brightly as a gem.
