When Roan's parents and the people of Longlight perish in a raid, Roan is filled with rage. Torn between his desire for revenge and the legacy of peace he has inherited, he is taken in by a sect of warriors. Here he learns he has exceptional talent as a fighter. But Roan is haunted by visions he can't understand. When he commits his first act of violence, he flees in disgust into the most wasted lands of all, the Devastation. It is only when Roan meets the strange girl Alandra that he begins to understand his life's purpose and why the village of Longlight was destroyed. Dennis Foon has created an immensely powerful and disturbing look at a wasted world. Through the character of Roan, hope and the promise of renewed life seem possible.

Sprawling post-apocalypse fantasy.
Roan is a believable adolescent whose grief fuels his desire for vengeance even as unavoidable violence makes him sick at heart... Readers with a taste for both fantasy and science fiction will relish this savory melange.
Begins what promises to be an interesting trilogy, a story of good versus evil and of brutal force versus peaceful purposes... familiar themes with interesting characters and an intricate plot.--Mary Ann Darby"VOYA" (02/01/2004)
Foon has created a believable and disturbing futuristic world where survivors struggle to subsist on post apocalyptic earth. However, through Roan and several other characters, there is hope for a renewed life. The multiple conflicts in the novel create energy and tension, and the characterization is strong throughout. Foon's writing is taut and powerful, and the fast paced, evocative and compelling tale is totally engaging. This reader anxiously awaits the sequel, Freewalker. Highly Recommended.--Sylvia Pantaleo"Canadian Materials" (09/03/2003)
