Teaser:

From the rubble of the future comes potential... and peril

In Denver, Ryan Cawdor and his companions are offered a glimmer of hope: a power plant, electricity, food and freedom. But the city is caught in a civil war between two would-be leaders and their civilian armies... and Ryan is caught in the middle, challenged by both sides to do their bidding. Tomorrow is never just a brand-new day in the Deathlands.

Back Cover:

Dark Passage

The ravaged landscape that was America two centuries ago is now blighted by post-nuclear holocaust savagery. Still, there remain pockets of preDark technology that may offer undiscovered paths to reclaiming the future. Ryan Cawdor and his companions have faced most kinds of horror that Deathlands can deliver -- and survived. This merciless place can break even the strongest, but it has yet to destroy hope.

Place of Promise

Denver offers a glimpse of that very hope -- a power plant, electricity, food and freedom. But the city is caught in a civil war between two would-be leaders and their civilian armies. Challenged by both sides to do their bidding, Ryan discovers a third player in the quest to control the mile-high city -- a secret enclave of White Coats with the strength and technology to pursue a twisted agenda of their own.Tomorrow is never just a brand-new day in the Deathlands...

Helfer's Perception
by Maximus
John Helfer's 2nd DL novel was a fun and cool read. Nice to see a new writer come in and know the basic knowledge of the characters and their world.

Also, like some authors have been doing for some years now, this isn't just a hodge-podge of action sequences with the typical baron and thin storyline.

Perception had a lot going for it. Loved it when Jak and Doc are watching Star Wars movies, and how differently they thought about it. It is fresh, insightful things like this that bring out new and excellent nuances to the characters never seen before.

If there was something to gripe about here, it would be Helfer's having Ryan lose his panga knife in two different ways - and in each book - but magically have it reappear. ??

Also in this particular novel, J.B. is in the middle of an action sequence with his blaster pointing down a locked hatch of an APC, and it is never shown or told how he got it open or tackled that issue.

Other than those small things, albeit somewhat important for cohesiveness, Helfers has more than proven he is an excellent addition to the writers for this series.
