Some Kind of Stranger

The world is a wasteland with people struggling to survive. When Michael visits the small town of Providence, he trouble follows in his wake. The town is ruined and the people must move on to Newbegin.

Anything that remotely resembles a post apocalyptic landscape will always get my attention and this had nice cover art, too.

I’m not sure what I expected from this book, other than mediocrity. It’s difficult for me to be excited for things when so many fail to deliver. This one, however, looks very promising. I’m not entirely drawn in, though. It’s just curiosity driving me forward. I want to know more about these sand dwellers and Michael’s gift. I’m also very interested in those Sunners and this odd religion of theirs.

There’s also a story that talks about the state of the world and theories of what happened. It’s a nice background builder and has really pumped my curiosity of the world. I’m really looking forward to reading more.
