Publisher's Summary

Global war devastated the environment, a zombielike plague wiped out much of humanity, and civilization as we once understood it came to a standstill. But that was a thousand years ago, and the world is now a very different place.
Conflict between city-states is constant, superstition is rife, and machine relics, mutant creatures, and resurrected prehistoric beasts trouble the land. Watching over all are the silent Dreaming Cities. Homes of the angels, bastion outposts of heaven on Earth. Or so the church claims. Very few go in, and nobody ever comes out. Until now....
A prolific freelance author and journalist, Guy Haley is the author of Reality 36 and the Warhammer 40,000 novels Valedor and Baneblade, among others. He lives in Yorkshire with his wife and son.

THE GONE BEFORE

I AM TELLING YOU THIS STORY AND I HAVE TOLD IT BEFORE
This was a pleasant surprise. I was entertained and enjoyed exploring this dystopian world. A future United States, with Zombies, Dragons and Angels. This reads like maybe a prequel to a future series. I hope so. Although it was a lot of telling, something I give most authors hell for. It would have been better as a story told as it happened, instead of after it happened, but still I would give it an A-. This writer writes mostly in the War Hammer series and I will have to try some of those, but I hope he returns to this strange new world.

Narrator is Tim Gerard Reynolds and those remotely familiar with fantasy and/or Michael J. Sullivan will certainly recognize this talent.

dense for its length!

not a fan of the southern accent it was narrated in but the story is excellent and leaves you wanting more of the world
