Angus James has played many roles in his life, but none have prepared him for the one he now finds himself in. Alone for too long, traveling the wastelands of what was once the United States, he’s all but given up hope of ever seeing another living person.
Then he finds her.
Naya is a tough and resilient kid, but she’s alone in a world full of creatures intent on wiping out what’s left of the human race, and Angus knows it’s up to him to keep her safe. And for once in his life, he’s determined to get something right.
Battling nightmarish creatures, feral animals, harsh conditions, and even their own demons, Angus and Naya must work together if they want to survive. But being with another person after years on his own brings up painful memories Angus had thought were long forgotten, making the journey as heartbreaking as it is treacherous. It gives him something else as well, though. Hope. And that’s something he never thought he’d have again.
I have made it no secret that I love Kate L. Mary’s novels. She has been an auto-read for me, since the first book I picked up by her. I don’t think I’ve rated one of her books less than five stars, and here we are again, with Angus.
I love the Broken World Series, so I was pumped to see Angus. Now, Angus is a jerk. Or at least, he starts out that way. But Kate L. Mary has an ability to create deep, layered characters. What looks cold and cruel on the surface, is slowly revealed to be a person just trying to make it in the world, and he does have kindness in his heart.
The world, per usual, is terrifying and feels very much like it could happen. That’s always the scary part. I love the world building, and am always in awe of how easy it is to escape into these novels.
Loved this. Highly recommended.
