Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of the Remaining series...
They took everything - killed his wife, enslaved his daughter, destroyed his life. Now he's a man with nothing left to lose...and that's what makes him so dangerous.
Ten years after the collapse, Huxley has built a good life again. He has a loving wife, a farm with fields of golden barley, and a daughter with a strange and wonderful gift. Then the slavers come. Working out in the fields during the attack, Huxley returns too late. His daughter has been taken, and his wife is bleeding out, her last whispered words about a man with a scorpion tattoo on his neck.
Where do the slavers go? Huxley has no idea. He knows only that they head east, and so will he, setting out on foot across the desert of the Wastelands. Eighteen months into his journey, he has no hope of ever seeing his daughter alive. Dying of thirst in the open desert, he doesn't even expect to see another day.
Then a man appears out of the desert and offers Huxley water from his canteen, an unheard of kindness in these savage times. Jay is an odd man, full of violence and guided by his hatred of the slavers, but he helps Huxley survive. And he gives Huxley a new purpose: Nothing can bring back the dead, but the two men can chase down the slavers and make them bleed.
Together Huxley and Jay carve a path of destruction across the remains of a once-great land. The slavers are brutal, but they have no idea what's coming for them. Huxley has found something to live for again: blood and vengeance.
In his most powerful work yet, New York Times best-selling author D. J. Molles delivers a carefully woven novel of violence and redemption, bringing to life a devastating portrait of a man pushed to the edge of his own humanity.

Brilliant. I do have one criticism.

OK, so after listening to The Remaining series, I consider myself a BIG fan of both DJ Molles and Christian Rummel; I expected A LOT from this book.

As expected, the writing was nothing short of brilliant. DJ Molles is a master of descriptive words and analogies, pushing my imagination to perform in ways I didn't know were possible.

Christian Rummel brings the story to life with many different voices, expertly matched to the individual character's personality. DJ and Christian are an amazing team.

Now, my criticism... DJ takes a long time to reveal the back story of the main character and the main character's overall goal is obscure for most of the book... for that reason, even though there is PLENTY of action, I felt like I didn't know what I was rooting for. Because DJ tells us so little about the main character initially, I had a hard time feeling a connection to him... until much later in the book. By the end of the book, I was absolutely connected to him.

I understand why DJ revealed the details he did at the pace he did, but there were unintended consequences. I still absolutely recommend the book and, now that I'm emotionally invested, I CANNOT WAIT for the next book in the series!

why are there no automatic weapons anymore?

wouldn't you think doomsday preppers in bunkers would have enough auto and semi auto weapons to become warlords? for some reason all guns are handmade in this post apocalypse, which is set only about 10 years after the bombs fell and the USA ceased to exist. People are using cap and ball revolvers, "scatterguns" that are single shot muzzle loaders made of pipe and fire D batteries... But the USA has more guns than people. But virtually none of the pre disaster guns exist any more...
