Centuries after a cataclysmic event drastically changed the world, fifteen-year-old Zack McQueen stumbles upon a cave filled with relics from a nearly forgotten era. Relics that could both reshape his destiny and forever change the future for all living things. Returning home, he finds his town in ruins and his loved ones missing. Vowing to find them, he embarks on an epic journey of danger, love and self-discovery that will take him to places that he'd never imagined possible.

I got this book as a free promotion on Kindle and ended up reading the whole thing in one sitting. Zack and Emily are the most believable characters that I have read about since The Hunger Games came out, and the book was not boring once. I looked around for other books but found out that this is the only one that he has written so far. It is really, really, good and I am waiting for another one.

Sick of zombies and dark urban, paramilitary excursions into global cataclysms of the future? Are you hankering for a yarn set in a rural landscape of beauty and simplicity, reminiscent of the old West? Do you hope that when the world crashes, you'll be riding horses instead of armored tanks? Look no further. You'll get your fantasy/sci-fi fix, too, don't worry. But in this book, the fix is subtle yet spell-binding. There is enough techie stuff to scratch an itch for machines. Without giving away the plot, you will find that, in the story, machines, appliances and technology, however, take a back seat. Which is refreshing! Zack McQueen is a great character and he gets the honor of leading this rapid-paced book full of other wonderful characters and settings and adventures. Other books set in the future could take a lesson from this author. He has a knack with language and description that is satisfyingly rich and, for a story that is often violent and traumatic, comforting through the scary parts.

McLellan's first book, apparently. The story feels like there will and should be a sequel. Hope to see more.
