Publisher's Summary

Only a few nuclear weapons fell. But in the chaos of famine and plague, there existed a few pockets of order. The strongest of them was the state of Deseret. The climate has changed, and the lake has filled up. There, on the fringes, brave, hardworking pioneers are making the desert bloom again.

Short Story Collection

I have ready most of Orson Card's books and am a huge fan. This book is very captivating and is great with character development as well as awesome narration. The only down side is that it is a collection of short stories centered around a main theme and I found myself wishing a few of the stories were longer. This is no Ender's Game...but if you like Card then this is a must read!

- Sam "I like to read about wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey... stuff."

An indoctrination.

I expected enjoyable post-apocalyptic sci-fi but got an indoctrination into the theology and world view of the Latter-day Saints. After a plague has decimated the population of North America, "Christian soldiers" (non-LDS) run amok, killing LDS men, women, and children. I guess initiates may enjoy it, but I didn't make it past the first section.
