Publisher Comments:

We're about to cross the point of no return. God help us; we're flying in the dark and we don't know where the hell were going.

Facing down an unprecedented malevolent enemy, the government responds with a nuclear attack. America as it was is gone forever, and now every citizen — from the President of the United States to the homeless on the streets of New York City — will fight for survival.

Swan Song is Robert McCammon's prescient and "shocking" (John Saul) vision of a post-apocalyptic nation, a grand epic of terror and, ultimately, renewal.

In a wasteland born of rage and fear, populated by monstrous creatures and marauding armies, earth's last survivors have been drawn into the final battle between good and evil, that will decide the fate of humanity: Sister, who discovers a strange and transformative glass artifact in the destroyed Manhattan streets ...Joshua Hutchins, the pro wrestler who takes refuge from the nuclear fallout at a Nebraska gas station... And Swan, a young girl possessing special powers, who travels alongside Josh to a Missouri town where healing and recovery can begin with Swans gifts. But the ancient force behind earths devastation is scouring the walking wounded for recruits for its relentless army, beginning with Swan herself....

Review:

"Compelling.... A long, satisfying look at hell and salvation." Publishers Weekly

Robert Mccammon writes with a smooth pen. His artistry for words is magic. Swan Song takes you on a ride through a devastated America. You witness love and hate, man's inhumanity to man. How evil pervades even the most devout. But good has deeper roots. Mccammon characterization has you feeling the emotions of both sides. A fantastic read by a masterful raconteur.

This is my favorite book ever! It is amazing. It's very suspenseful; one of those books that you have to keep reading to find out what is going to happen next.
