The nuclear exchange that ripped apart the world destroyed a way of life thousands of years in the making. Now, generations after the nuclear blight, Ryan Cawdor and his band of warrior survivalists try to reclaim the hostile land, led by an undimmed vision of a better future.
It's winner take all in the Deathlands.
Hard on the heels of their escape from a powerful baroness, the wayfarers arrive at the shore of the mighty Mississippi. As if whisked back in time, they find themselves passengers on a riverboat plying the waters and offering every gambling pleasure. It's a high old time with the genial captain, until the stakes escalate to nightmare proportions and Ryan is sold to the highest bidder.
Hello there! I looked forward to reading this book for awhile, and boy I was not dissapointed! I myself like the fact that LJ seems to put our characters into a loosely veiled western. From the beginning of falling off the cliff with the baroness, to the end ride on the balloon to the redoubt away from the Magus/Wolfram fortress, there was great action throughout. The thing I liked best about this book was its settings. In the midwest, where the authors of these books tend not to place them for some reason? Anyways, I love this book, and wish LJ was still around 12 years later! Thanks!
