He thought he was prepared. He thought his family was safe. He was wrong.
Five years after a pneumonic plague killed two-thirds of the world's population, army veteran Marcus Battle is isolated. He's alone with his guns, his food, and the graves of his wife and child. Unaware of the chaos that's befallen everything outside of his central Texas ranch land, Marcus lives a Spartan life. If anyone steps onto his property, he shoots first and never asks questions. But when a woman in distress, chased by marauders, seeks asylum, Marcus has a decision to make. Does he throw her to the wolves to protect himself, or does he help her and leave the shelter and protection of home?

A Uniquely different dystopian book
This is definitely a good story, probably in my top 25
Yes, he does an excellent job of conveying emotions and character development
I don't do spoiler reviews. This book does a wonderful job of telling a story within a story using flashbacks to build up the current story line. It's not an easy thing to do but the author does it well by keeping the flashbacks short and intense but without taking away from the main story. I will be using next month's credit to get the next book in the series.
