The story is set in the early days of Civil War, around the devastated alleys of downtown Seattle where the first run of Dr. Blue’s ultimate drill engine, the Boneshaker goes terribly wrong. Due to the destruction, a subterranean vein bursts out blight gas that turns anyone who breathed it, into the living dead. The city is lost to the undead, criminal overlords, refugees with heavy weaponry and the air pirates. And now it’s the responsibility of the Blue’s widow, Briar to hunt for her teenage boy and bring the toxic city back to life. The novel is an absolute splendid piece of work; and describes the hardships of Briar and her son in an engaging manner. Surely Priest has put her best in compiling this gem of a novel. A must read!
