From the Inside Flap
Per Hiero Desteen was a priest, a telepath -- and a highly trained killer. Together with his great riding moose and the young bear who was his friend, he was on an extraordinary mission. For this was five thousand years after the holocaust known as The Death. Now the evil Brotherhood of the Unclean was waging all-out war against the few remnants of normal humanity, determined to wipe out all traces of its emerging civilization. Hiero's task was to bring back a lost secret of the ancients that might save the humans. But his path lay through the very heart of the territory ruled by the Unclean and their hordes of mutated, intelligent, savage beast followers. And the Unclean were waiting for him!

However, Kindle edition is so badly ruined by publishers decision to just use a bad OCR device on the book and do absolutely no editing or even proofreading afterwards.
For this, shame on you Sterling Media Group because you defiled such a beautiful book and Amazon because you shamelessly sell it in this shape.
It was a nice reading and I enjoyed the book again. However, I noticed something that I missed 20 years ago when I was a kid - the story flow is not always smooth and sometimes changes awkwardly. For example, when the protagonist has some deadly challenges and everything is against him and there is no hope, something magically happens, a new ally comes, or some unbelievable coincidence of events let him out of all situations. It was ok 20 year ago, but now I found this a bit naive and Hollywood-like. Still, the book itself deserves 4 stars.
Another issue is a very poor formatting. There are numerous broken paragraphs and some OCR mistakes (use of number 1 instead of letter l). Buying an intangible book for $10 I would expect it to be proofreaded and formatted well. That is finally I use 3 stars to grade this e-book.
