Into the Wasteland - A Dystopian Journey

Rated 4.00/5 based on 2 reviews
I have been abandoned in a stark landscape. I have no idea who I am or why I've been cast out. My only protection is a Ruger double-action revolver. I discover if I can make it through the no-man's-land alive, I might have a chance at amnesty. All I have to do is trek the two-hundred-and-fifty miles north through desolate wasteland to the Gate. Alone.

I could say this is the worst day of my life, More

About Lisa Shea

I love writing in a variety of genres. I currently have over 200 books published in all lengths from full 500+ page novels down to short stories. I love writing series. Some are with unconnected characters, like the 13 full-length medieval novels with a sword being passed from heroine to heroine. Some have connected characters, like the 31 mini-mysteries featuring a detective in Salem, Massachusetts. All of my books are written "clean" with no explicit intimacy, no harsh language, and no explicit violence. All are suitable for teens and up.

Review by: Mark Schultz on Dec. 06, 2014 :
What a great book! I really enjoyed this story of survival in a primitive world. The plot was very pure, Hawk keeps putting one foot in front of the other. The main characters had depth and the landscape was an important part of the struggle. The only tiny fly in the ointment was a number of misplaced words.
As a human spell-checker, it would be my honor to assist the author; my rates are very reasonable. tinman97030atYahoodotcom.
Thanks for several hours of pleasure.

Review by: E. Bard on Sep. 29, 2014 :
I completely forgot I had downloaded this - but I'm glad I did. It really is quite good and it is not at all what I thought it would be (which is a pleasant surprise). Although the story is exactly as the title claims - a dystopian journey - my first impression is that the story is really more of a western. From the grubby clothed, gun toting heroine right down to her companionship with a horse named Blaze, the story is a straight shooter. The writing is very clean. There are no superfluous words, added subplots, annoying characters or meandering thought processes. It's a journey survival story and the author sticks to it. Yes the reader is thrown into the story without any clues about the world it takes place in, or who the main character is (other than a young woman with solid instincts who adopts the name Hawk). But sometimes more questions than answers can be a good thing. It keeps the reader reading. And because, when I reached the end of the novella, I learned that the proceeds from the sale of this author's books would benefit a women's shelter - I decided to buy the next one.
