WANTED: Men and women willing to drive through the valley of the shadow of death.

The world’s population has been decimated by the Change, a chain reaction of events triggered by global warming. In Europe, governments have fallen, cities have crumbled and the wheels of production have ground to a halt. The Alps region, containing most of the continent’s remaining fresh water, has become a closed state with heavily fortified borders. Survivors cling on by trading through the Runners, truck drivers who deliver cargo and take a percentage. Amid the ruins of central Germany, two Runners, Cassady and Ghazi, are called on to deliver medical supplies to a research base deep in the Italian desert, where scientists claim to be building a machine that could reverse the effects of the Change. Joining the pair is a ragtag collection of drivers, all of whom have something to prove. Standing in their way are starving nomads, crumbling cities, hostile weather and a rogue state hell-bent on the convoy’s destruction. And there’s another problem: Cassady is close to losing his nerve.

I liked this concept. It’s a new take on how the world can be changed by the hands of mankind. The personality of each character is well developed. The characters learn to rely upon each other. It did take time for this to happen, Runners are known to be aloof. Their emotions were palpable to me.

There is a wonderful correlation between how the driver’s health suffers and and how the land they pass becomes worse. Each driver also undergoes a personality changes which shows how each person is either gaining knowledge or taking a beating.

The plot stays strong with no major changes. I enjoyed seeing how mankind is still struggling to keep themselves alive and how far they will go. The world is well described and makes me glad that I was not there.

Each driver also knows that this run could be their last, yet they decide to go anyway. They want the world to be healed so future generations can live a better life. So, each one offers different sacrifices to make sure that at least one truck makes it.

If you love people showing how strong they can be when adversity strikes, if you also enjoy watching a stricken world, and a different take on what happens when mankind harms the planet, then this might be the book for you.
