Three hundred years after the fall of society, the last fragments of civilization are clinging to life, living in the ruins of the ancient cities in medieval conditions. Technology has been reduced to legend, monsters roam the forests, and fear reigns supreme. But that is just the beginning. The wind-borne spores are spreading, disfiguring men and twisting their minds, turning them into creatures that threaten to destroy the townships. Among the townsfolk, political and the religious, dissension is spreading. Through it all, a mother must protect her son.
Written well enough that if the story went in directions I was interested in, I think I would have read past book one, but this is much more of a survival book than it is a post-apocalyptic science fiction story.
The set is only $0.99 though, so it’s priced right.
