Audiobook. I'm new to the Deathlands series though I've been looking for Road Warrior-esque post-apocalyptic fiction for years. It's not written particularly well, the characters are often cardboard-ish, and some of the slang is just silly: ("triple" = extremely, "chill" = kill, and "blasters" = guns, really? Really.) Yet, I kind of like it. It's fun. This story is a prequel although being the last book written in the 44-book series. It tells the story of how Trader became such a feared fellow. ...more
I think this book is great. It tells the story of Trader... who is one of the most well known individuals in Deathlands. The story takes place at Virtue Lake where Baron Lundquist Zeal operated a refinery for gasoline. He captures Trader and his convoy during a trade that was set up as a trap. He wants to use Traders war wag convoy to raid a place known as Spearpoint... some giant redoubt of all redoubts, this place a guarded by the Palmers... these humans who eat these roots poisoned by nuclear ...more
According to this site this is book number 45.5 of the Deathland series. This is the first book I read of the series. The source I had listed it as book number 00. It appears to be a prequel and I don't feel that it gave away anything I shouldn't have read. I'm just now starting book one and will let you know if it has spoilers. I feel it was a good introduction to the series. Lots of action and I enjoy the character named Trader.
