  • Zero City - James Axler cover

Synopsis

A journey through the dangerous frontier known as the future...

A FUTURE CONDEMNED

The nuclear Armageddon of 2001 put the world on an odyssey of savage rebirth. Now, little more than hundred years after the blast, the quest for power is viciously embraced by America's new masters, barons commanding fortresses called villes, policed by stonehearts called sec men. But even in this dark new world, heros and legends are emerging. One of them is a warrior survivalist named Ryan Cawdor, believed to possess pre-apocalpytic knowledge that holds hope for a beleaguered future.

A PAST FORSAKEN

Hungry and exhausted, Ryan and his band emerge from a redoubt into a remarkably untouched predark city, and uncover a cache of weapons and food. But the group is not alone. Among other interlopers, the city is guarded by huge winged creatures, protecting the grisly secrets of a neary barony. Holed up inside an old government building, where Ryan's sone, Dean, lies near death, Ryan and Krysty must raid the treacherous ville across the desert where a local baron uses human flesh as fertilizer...

In the Deathlands, evil is unstoppable.

Excerpt

The creature screamed, enraged, and charged

The companions broke before the rush, folding away on both sides, then stepping in. The creature was trapped in a killing box, with every blaster firing.

It slashed out a clawed wing, which drooped as the cartilage was smashed. Pain overwhelming sense, it continued to rush the humans, but the blasters never ceased, a person reloading while the one alongside kept firing, until finally the broken, bloody thing collapsed, yellow blood pooling around the riddled corpse. Then Ryan stepped close and cut off its head with his pange.

"Good thing Dean gave us a warning," J.B. said. "If that thing had caught us inside with no room to maneuver, we'd be in its belly by now."

"Where's Dean?" Jak asked, concerned.

"Dean!" Ryan shouted. "Dean, where are you?"

Only the wind whispered in reply.
