A Good Start

This year is shaping up as the year of the short story with another great read under the belt. As prequels go this book delivers a tale that wets ones appetite for more. In this tale we are introduced to a futuristic world which has been devastated by a nuclear war. We find our hero sitting in a cell awaiting his fate in the isolated community of Red Denver. This book tells the story of how he got there and what he has to face to survive.

By the end of this short story you have a good sense of the world it is set in and what makes our hero tick. The story by itself is entertaining if not a tad cliché but that is not bad thing as it is a story that is very well told.
