A post-apocalyptic world decimated by war. An epic tale of good versus evil, as surviving groups struggle to survive and search for hope, as others search for power. Their only salvation my lay in the restorative hands of a young girl named Swan.
The writing is smooth and flows well, even through all the 900+ pages. The characters are extremely well drawn and the story is truly an epic. A few other reviewers have stated that they wished they had read this one when it came out in the late 80’s and I think that I agree. Still, a 4+ Star read and maybe more…I’m gonna let it gel and see. Robert McCammon can write a hell of an entertaining story. No doubt about it.
