About 10 years ago, the world went dark. Val and her brother Emory were just children and soon lost their adoptive parents to the body- and mind-altering infection that came with the darkness. Now, Val is a ferryman, who drives a rig across the dangerous dark miles of former roads transporting people and cargo from one “safe” spot to another. When the latest passenger promises a sanctuary that will help heal Emory’s infection, Val is willing to take on the extra risk from not only the murderous shades of former animals and humans infected long ago, but also the notorious hit man now on their trail. Snyder (WYTCHES) kicks off this new series with a high-stakes road trip through the dark. Poignant flashbacks to the “before” add depth to the main characters, while the art intensifies the highs and lows of their current situation.
VERDICT This new series will take readers on the ride of their lives and leave them eager for the next volume.
