The Scourge of God
The Sunrise Lands Series - Book 2
High adventure of the type that myths and legends are made of, that is where Rudi MacKenzie finds himself in this portion of the saga. Without technology, men and women are left to face life in both its best and worst forms with little more than bows and arrows to aid them. The Change has brought out some of mankind’s greatest qualities and some of its meanest. Stirling brings both sides, along with our heroes, to the page with stunning imagery and character depth.
At times you want to scream, at times you want to cry, but you will not be able to put this down once you become enwrapped in the Rudi aura. A man with a mission, made much more tolerable, and interesting, by the band of travel companions he brings with him on his quest.
