Praise For…

"Afull throttle, sand-in-your-eyes, no holds barred ride through a Mad Max-style wasteland where the bad guys become family. Finally, an underdog with teeth!"
Delilah S. Dawson on Bite

"A bloodstained road trip through the Wastes beckons, featuring some memorable violence, gut-wrenching betrayals and one of the most nihilistic settings I've ever come across . . . A breathtaking read, best done in one go."
