Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cass Dollar is a survivor. She's overcome the meltdown of civilization, humans turned mindless cannibals, and the many evils of man.

But from beneath the devastated California landscape emerges a tendril of hope. A mysterious traveler arrives at New Eden with knowledge of a passageway North—a final escape from the increasingly cunning Beaters. Clutching this dream, Cass and many others decamp and follow him into the unknown.

Journeying down valleys and over barren hills, Cass remains torn between two men. One—her beloved Smoke—is not so innocent as he once was. The other keeps a primal hold on her that feels like Fate itself. And beneath it all, Cass must confront the worst of what's inside her—dark memories from when she was a Beater herself. But she, and all of the other survivors, will fight to the death for the promise of a new horizon….

Review:

"Littlefield's third novel of the zombie apocalypse (Aftertime; Rebirth) is relentlessly hard on Cass Dollar, who started the series as a dazed yet driven woman and has now become a stagnating, drunken portrait of lust and despair. One man she loves is in a vegetative state; the other is supposedly with another woman, but he snatches little sordid moments with Cass when everyone else is asleep. The narrative perspective wanders aimlessly for several chapters before anyone demonstrates the motivation to act decisively — in response, not surprisingly, to an onslaught of the zombies known as Beaters. The crackling, incisive style of the first book has been replaced by discursive, loosely punctuated sentences that beg for an editor's hand. The story is not without the grim pleasures of its predecessors, however; as always, Littlefield evokes her dystopian California with unnerving conviction, and Cass's encounters with Beaters retain their horrifying power.
