It is a thousand years in the future, technology for the most part is frowned upon, and the United States is arranged in a feudal system - the parts that are left after wars demolished the land and most of the people.
This story is told by 12 year-old Abney, who with his mother Sarah, is traveling under the protection of Quinn as they head north to find a cousin after their home was destroyed by the undead.
Author Haley has created quite a world in this short book. Not a word is wasted and yet this future world is easy to envision.
A knight, angels, a dragon, the undead - all come together in this grand tale. You'd think it would be a hot mess with the mixing of so many genres but it works - very well.
I'm now heading off to read the second book in the series THE GHOUL KING, another short book continuing the story of Quinn.
