Marcus Battle tries to keep his promise to Lola by leaving his home to find her son. For the first time since the Scourge hit over five years ago he sees the wasteland that remains of the once proud state of Texas. Those that sought him out and destroyed his house are ruthlessly running the Cartel. You either join the Cartel, are ruled by the Cartel, or die by the Cartel.
Abrahams second novel in The Traveler series, Canyon, provides a more in depth look at Marcus’ character. The story pivots between the present and back in time to when Marcus served the military in Syria. I personally found the Syria half of the book boring. It was summed up in a couple of pages in the third book and could have easily done so in this book.
I did enjoy the rest of this book even though it was not as well edited as the first book.
3 out of 5 stars.
I received this book for free from the author for review consideration. This in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of my review.
