When they killed his family, they killed a part of him too. The good part.
Seven years after a global war has devastated mankind, Frank Brogan and his family live in the safety of New Haven, a newly-formed authoritarian state deep in the American northwest. Beyond the Exclusion Wall lies the Outzone, a lawless territory ceded from federal jurisdiction. Brogan never thought he would go there. He was wrong.
When three Outzone bandits cross into New Haven and murder his wife and daughter, Brogan quits his specially-trained police unit to hunt them down. Entering the Outzone, he travels to its de facto capital, Winter's Edge, and picks up the bandit's trail. In a violent city controlled by rival gangs, he needs to use all his hard-won skills as a police officer and war veteran to survive.
It isn't long before Brogan's quest takes him out of the city and deeper into the territory, where a beautiful but dangerous woman takes a keen interest in him. Can he survive encounters with the nomadic tribes that roam the Outzone's mountains and plains to finally confront the men who murdered his family?

A great non-standard post-apocalyptic novel
Definitely. The story is carefully drawn together around a really interesting set of characters. It makes it the type of book that you can go back to really easily.
Frank Brogan was a great lead character. Really well written. The horror that sets him on his path for vengeance doesn't lead to a character that's twisted or unlikable which can sometimes happen, rather he has a personal mission and a hero's journey.
Kevin Pierce has a great voice for a strong male character. The leader/hero type of voice. Whilst its great narration in general it does bring our lead character to life.
My strongest reaction was to look forward to the next instalment. Brogan is a brilliant character that we want to see more of!
