Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Disgraced in the eyes of his own tribe, the Dog People, Gan Moondark journeys across what used to be the Pacific Northwest in this post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller. Gan forms many alliances as he rises to power over the peoples of the region. He links up with the Rose Priestess Sylah, a war healer; Tate, a soldier from the past time of the "giants" who must keep her origin a secret; and Clas, who becomes Gan's ever-dependable friend and fighting instructor. Together they battle evil in all its forms, ultimately challenging the sadistic King Altanar. McQuinn ( Targets ), a retired major in the Marine Corps, graphically informs his epic with a solid understanding of military tactics. And he includes much that could lift the tale out of the company of Conan the Barbarian , such as a dose of feminism and conflicting allegiances to church, state and personal interests. But these elements are secondary to the well-worn story of a male hero fulfilling a violent destiny of conquest. "Like the stars above, he had his course." And, for the most part, it's one we've seen before.

From Library Journal

Long after the nuclear winter, humanity survives on the American continent much as the original Native Americans did, and tribes such as the Dog People struggle to maintain their identity in the face of an emerging Empire bent on conquest. The author of Targets (Tor, 1983) has skillfully crafted a novel of sf adventure featuring strong male and female characters. For large sf collections.

The Moondark Saga is the story of Gan Moondark and the nation he forms in a post-apocalyptic world in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. So far I’ve only read the first three books in the saga (the Warrior trilogy: Book 1: Escape to Challenge, Book 2: Warrior’s Gamble, Book 3: Who Dares Define Victory ) but I intend to read the other six.

The Dog People have roamed the Northwest with their horses and dogs for centuries. They have become strong during this time, but they battle with each other to determine who will be their new War Chief. Col Moondark, their previous War Chief wanted his son Gan to be his successor, but Gan is viewed with mistrust by his fellow tribesmen. Gan, who prefers the company of his war dogs to the tribe, sets off across the Northwest. Along the way, he meets the Rose Priestess Sylah, a war healer; Tate, a soldier with some secrets of her own; and Clas, who become his friend and fighting instructor.

‘Nothing was exactly as it should be, yet all happened as the dream promised.’

In an interesting blend of personal quests and conflicting allegiances, the characters become very real. And just as the world of the Dog People becomes relatively familiar, other players enter the arena. The reader will recognise the ’giants’ are and where they came from, but what are their intentions, and is co-existence possible? There are other nations as well, and with war between the Harbundai and the Ola looming, allegiances are shifting and conflict is inevitable.

‘If this is what they’ve become in five centuries, what’ll their descendants be like in another century? Another five?

A post-apocalyptic heavy duty entertainer. What a great read. Great characterization, thought provoking story and best of all....soooo entertaining. Must read. And then get ready to follow-up with Wanderer and Witch. Buy them all at once, you won't be disappointed. What a great trilogy! Hoo-Rah.

This is the one story of a post nuclear civilization, that
had a believable backround, and a well followed story line.
You won't be able to put this one down. It's the kind of tale
that keeps you up nights. Semper Fi!
