Did you read that synopsis? Did it feel heavy, foreboding and mysterious? Trust me, it is the perfect description for THE TETHERING by Jeremy R. Strong. Prepare to enter a world that feels unfriendly, deadly even as young Tiger returns to her village to find it decimated by evil. Villagers are slain and broken and many have been kidnapped, including her brother, Tarren. One old man remains, and it is he who will guide her through the jungle remnants of what was once North America. With Sai by he ...more

Jeremy Strong has written a richly layered tale evocative of H.G. Well's The Time Machine and Ursula Le Guin's "The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas" and yet completely original and compelling nevertheless.

World Building: A dark world full of danger and de

Loved this book!

As Tiger struggles to save her brother in a brutal and unforgiving landscape, she realizes that the legends she heard about as a child may all be true. The mythology in this story is complex and compelling. Is this actually our world, transformed out of all recognition? What catastrophes could have created such deadliness? How have any been able to survive? Yet they have, and it appears that there is one who may be coming back to reclaim a lost world.

Strong’s creation is wickedly
