Book Description

Centuries after the collapse of civilization, in a quiet village at the heart of the redwood forest, a tyrannical cult is plotting a massacre. The adults are murdered and the children are stolen away in cages while their homes burn around them. They are taken to the Nezran Temple and taught to be like their captors. The rewards, they are told, will be endless. Two childhood sweethearts, Jack and Lia, must make a vital decision--

Should they struggle to fit in -- or fight to escape?

A chance encounter with a mysterious stranger sets them on an unexpected course. What follows is a wild adventure down the ruins of the old California coast, through wasteland and woodland, as they go searching for the legendary Alexandria.

Join them in this dark, apocalyptic saga that sets the rusted gears of history turning again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Divine Dystopia 3 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I truly enjoyed this tale of post Armageddon USA. Society has degenerated, and small enclaves are being annihilated by a stronger group, led by a despot raised as a Divine Being. Children are snatched to be raised within the Temple, their past obliterated so they can be absorbed into King Azrana Nezra' s Temple life.

Two brave orphans, Jack and Kia fight against Azrana' s indoctrination, and run away to warn Alexandria, their only hope against Azrana' s cruel rein, of the King' s intention of seeking out weaker societies to wipe them off the face of the earth.

The characters in the story are distinct personalities, good, bad, mad, and those who just wish to live 'normal' lives.

The landscapes are succinctly, described vividly described

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellently Written Futuristic Novel 8 Jan. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Centuries after the collapse of the civilised world as we know it, a peaceable forest tribe are murdered, their children and stolen and taken to what on the face of it could be a Utopian Society at the Nezran Temple.

However, all is not as it seems and their new world is built on lies, megalomania and tyranny, and is very much Dystopian.

The main protagonists, Jack and Lia, were childhood sweethearts, and many years later they manage to escape following a small raid by others. On the so called attackers gives them assistance to escape, put is horrendously tortured to find out where Jack and Lia have gone.

On the run from the young adults not only have to navigate their way through an alien and hostile environment, but have to follow the vague directions given to find the answer to all their questions. All of which has to be done whilst avoiding vicious foes and the Nezran Scouts out to kill them.

It was wonderfully paced, with nice twists, turns and glimpses of kindness and humanitarianism.

There was a downside though, and that was the cliff-hanging ending. I've just checked John Kaden's blog on GoodReads, and he announced in September 2013 that there will be a sequel eventually, so fingers crossed it won't take too long - this could definitely turn into a saga of epic proportions.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading of their travails, awarding 4 Stars. If I'd had the ability to give half star ratings, there is not doubt it would have been 4.5. Why not 5? Well, there were a few errors/bug bears that kept it off the top spot - please see the fuller Blog Post #409 in January 2014.

Can I just say that the cover artwork was stunning, and really says so much about the world that Jack and Lia inhabit. Kudos to the author for choosing it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great read for all! 18 Sept. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A genre that I tend to skip past, but glad I didn't miss this one. Lia and Jack, lifelong friends, ripped from their lives and forced to learn a new way of life and death. One night, a chance is taken and could cost them their lives... I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I loved the ideas, the different tribes we met who were intertwined sometimes. The writing style was good, sometimes a little too heavy going which I found unnecessary; but a book I found hard to put down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping and engaging 1 Sept. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An interesting idea of post apocalyptic earth reverting back to medieval ways but aspiring to more developed technologies underpinning a gripping plot based around kidnapped children.
Highly recommend for action and adventure lovers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable read after slow start 1 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A little slow to start with but I quite liked it. It certainly improved as it went along. Not sure the timeline worked? A journey that took a month on foot but they made the return journey seemingly much faster. I may have misunderstood. Overall - quite a nice read. Some of the book reminded me a little of Mad Max, Beyond the Thunder Dome - the show and tell at the beginning.

4.0 out of 5 stars alexandria 24 July 2013
By Lynda F
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very good post apocolyptic book. Villages are being attacked and the children abducted to another place. 2 of these children tell of their broken childhood. They escape and the story really takes off when they look for Alexandria.
