The world has collapsed, and there are no heroes any more. His name is Three, a travelling gun for hire in a dying world. He has no allegiances, no family, no ties.
Against his better judgment, he accepts the mantle of protector to a sick woman on the run, and her young son. Together they set out across the plains in search of a mythic oasis, attempting to survive the forces that pursue them, and the creatures of the dark.
In these dark times, a hero may yet arise.

I like this book. Never boring.
Sad. Intriguing. Action.
Yes, the end, nicely done.
This is obviously a post-apocalypse genre book. However the world is not entirely typical for the genre, besides the author manages to keep the world largely a mystery which I like, keeps you guessing and speculating. The story is largely a journey through a sort of urban wasteland where interesting dangers, friends and foes are met. I feel this is a major strength of the book, where some books set-up a typical good vs. evil scenario this book manages to feel like something that could have actually happened to real people. As such it is not a heroes journey even though the title suggest it.
