"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. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
