Hattie (goodreadscomgoodreadscomTea) | 120 comments What's it about? I hear the title a lot.


Tanya (aka ListObsessedReader) (ListObsessed) | 166 comments Hi Hattie, its a post-apocalyptic story. Most of the population gets wiped out by a super flu and those few who survive begin to have dreams which cause them to gravitate towards what amount "good" and "evil" groups. It then deals with trying to rebuild society and how the good group can try to defeat the leader of the evil side, the Dark Man (who happens to be supernatural by the way).

Not a very compelling description I know, but I really enjoyed it. I listened to a fantastic audio edition narrated by Grover Gardner.
