Papa Bear has taken on as his charge a young girl. He has sworn to protect her no matter what. In this post-apocalyptic, radioactive wasteland there is little one can do to survive. They are scavengers and opportunists. When a seemingly impossible bounty presents itself, will these two live to collect it in this ever-violent world?
Turner’s first novel in the Survival series, Wasteland Fairytale, paints a harsh picture of the world after nuclear fallout. It’s kill or be killed especially when there is a young female involved. This steampunk tale features a dystopian society with multiple layers of haves and have nots. No one is happy and everyone is just trying to live another day. The dynamics between Papa Bear and the girl were a little on the almost creepy side.
Overall, it was a good story with a fresh take on the survival of mankind. It is well written and captivating. It will be interesting to see how the tale plays out in the next installment.
4 out of 5 stars.
