Author Sigmund Brouwer ventures into Cormac McCarthy territory with his latest thriller, set in a post-apocalyptic America, where a group of nomads led by the mysterious "Caitlyn" is on the run from ruthless bounty hunters in a territory known as Appalachia. Gifted narrator Kirsten Potter offers a simple yet compelling reading that mirrors the nomads' journey in its tone and pace—slow, steady, relentless. Potter's voice twists and bends to accommodate the varying dialects of the unusual characters who wander into the tale, never failing to convey a strong sense of foreboding throughout. Potter takes her listeners on the journey right alongside the main characters. L.B. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2009]
