THE WILD WORLD
It's 374 years after earth and everything on it was clobbered by quadruple cataclysms. Life has a twistedly medieval flavor in what's left of Pennsylvania. Literacy and possession of texts is a capital crime, except for the Federation of Librarians.
A ruthless, retail monarch holds the hodgepodge culture together. But, all is not well. Mutants, Haters and Horrors are on the move. They've waited centuries to strike down those responsible for their unnatural condition...Humans. Things are looking bad. Very bad!
A kick-ass Warrior/Librarian, her massive war horse, and a whip-smart border collie must unravel a riddle/warning, travel with a crew of unexpected companions, and save humanity. The heroes have issues, the villains surprising backstories. Violence erupts. Hearts are broken and sometimes mended. And reluctant friendships are forged in an unforgiving but wickedly funny, wild world.
