Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books came in their mailbox during the last week. It was created by Marcia @ A Girl and Her Books but now has a permanent home here


Just one for me, an arc of The Dead Lands by Benjamin Percy.  I love post apocalyptic novels so I'm really looking forward to reading it, I'll probably start it later this week.

 

In Benjamin Percy's new thriller, a post-apocalyptic reimagining of the Lewis and Clark saga, a super flu and nuclear fallout have made a husk of the world we know. A few humans carry on, living in outposts such as the Sanctuary-the remains of St. Louis-a shielded community that owes its survival to its militant defence and fear-mongering leaders.

Then a rider comes from the wasteland beyond its walls. She reports on the outside world: west of the Cascades, rain falls, crops grow, civilisation thrives. But there is danger too: the rising power of an army that pillages and enslaves every community they happen upon.

Against the wishes of the Sanctuary, a small group sets out in secrecy. Led by Lewis Meriweather and Mina Clark, they hope to expand their infant nation, and to reunite the States. But the Sanctuary will not allow them to escape without a fight.

  2. This has a great cover, and it definitely invokes danger without being overly graphic
