While this takes place nearly three hundred years in our future most technology has been lost, or so it seems, and this feels like we're back in the "Dark Ages" physically, technically, and spiritually. Individuals who become infected with something like Leprosy are burned-at-the-stake for the good of the community. Of course this only applies to women and children who are publicly stripped and inspected twice a year. Men are exempt from this because "they have true hearts" and can be trusted to voluntarily turn themselves in for Purification by fire. (LOL)
One woman, upon discovering her son is infected, chooses to attempt to escape from The-Stake by climbing the wall circling the Town and running into "The Wild". The cruel Town Rulers can't tolerate the precedent this escape would set and go to extreme measures to capture her and her son to teach everyone a lesson.
Thus begins a fantastic set of events that are chronicled in this series. Oh, did I mention that The Wild is full of the infected who are similar to "The Living Dead" except when they get really hungry they'll turn on themselves and prey on the weaker members... Yep, it's the women again. As William's disease slowly worsens he is torn between his family and friends, and the infected Demons he's becoming like. While he's only a Boy, he becomes aware that the Demons recognize leadership abilities in him and, he's pleased with this. If you think it's hard to tell if he's a "Good or Bad-Guy" from this, read the book; if you do, you'll finish it and go right to Book 1.
The author does new readers to the series as well as those of us who began with Book 1 a real favor. He starts with a detailed summary of the previous five books. As soon as I began reading following these summaries I was right back into the zone as if I had just put Book 5 down.
Review by THE HOLEY ONE
I enjoyed the series very much and the last book was pretty exciting as the author brought four groups of main characters into the final battle for the walled city. I connected with so many characters I didn’t know who to root for, but I definitely knew who I wanted to die a painful death. I’m was very sad on some aspects and thrilled on other’s fate. The author did leave some questions unanswered, but that was on purpose for the reader to bring their imagination to the story.
The story has many twist and character changes that make you think one way and all of a sudden, out of character, the character does something different. I don’t know if I liked that or not, but towards the end it all came together nicely.
I like how the author closed the story, but created a side story of one group to continue their journey. I hope at one point, they return and visit the walled city, but who knows, only the two authors. It took a while for the authors to write this book, but it was well worth it.
