Palaces of Light

Remnants of America's past are littered across the postapocalyptic landscape, but little remains of the predark ideals of law and order. Survival is a blood quest, and lethal force the means to power. Still, a handful retains their humanity among the coldhearts, and in a world where nothing lasts forever, hope is a commodity as precious as jack.

Steeped in beauty and mysticism, the canyons of Mesa Verde, Colorado, survived the blast that altered the American West. Hired to track a group of missing children, Ryan Cawdor and his band follow the trail to a legendary city carved in stone, older and stronger than the nukecaust. The inhabitants of the palaces of light are more than warriors and survivors; they are masters of mind games that prey on illusion. And true believers in a metaphysical endgame poised to push the companions over the edge of reality…into certain death.

Mini book
Only 95pages !! Not a bad story but not enough pages to develop. Felt rushed to climax. Ending needed a couple chapters to wrap it up.

About the author (2012)

Jack Adrian began the Deathlands series back in 1986. But after the first few books, he was unable to continue, and Laurence James, AKA James Axler, took over the series. The series now spans over fifty novels, with Laurence James responsible for writing all the novels up to and including Eclipse at Noon. The other novels, starting from 'Stone Face' with the exception of 'Crucible of Time' have been written by other writers. James Axler is the house name for Gold Eagle Books.
