Overview

After the nuclear winter, the taint of humanity worsened in the raw blood-quest for survival. Hunger for jack and power now fuels traders and barons, who relinquish authority only through death, crushing everything in their path. Still, a handful seek a better way of life, where iron fists and ordnance are replaced by harmony, justice and fair trade.

Separated by fate and a freak storm in the shifting landscape of the Great Plains, the companions find themselves on a path of strange prophecy. Here, Native American tribes embrace a peaceful, sacred way of life the travelers have only imagined. Still, Deathlands is a place with no reverence for ease or peace; the land was once the clandestine sanctuary of preDark science. Are Ryan Cawdor and his warrior survivalists destined to fulfill a vision-quest foretold by the shamans…or take a final, fatal plunge into the grim reality of a shattered world?

Prophecy is book #90 in the Deathlands Saga by James Axler, although Amazon mistakenly lists it at #89. I don't care, do you? Yes, we all know James Axler is a "house name" at Gold Eagle. There have been several different writers of these books. It doesn't take a whole lot of detective work to find the actual authors name, but I'm not that interested. If you are, go for it. Prophecy is so different from other entries in the series as to have little in common with them. I mean, they don't hardly kill anyone in this book. What's up with that? This book is more a tale of Native American Spirituality, than it is a survivalist action/adventure. I did miss the shoot'em up aspect I expect from Deathlands. But, this being said, Prophecy itself is a pretty darn good book. Cawdor and the companions were not the focus of the story, they were just a convenient tool to tell basically a Native American story. Three tribes trying to live up to the destiny set for them by legend. I tend to like stories about Native history. The author does bring the story back to the Deathlands theme at the end. Die-hard Deathlands fans may be disappointed by this installment due to the lack of general mayhem. But if given a chance, and judged on it's own merits, I think the reader will find Prophecy a very entertaining book. Enjoy! Mike

*she sits on a chair in an empty room. The lights r turned off. In an instant her head shot up and her eyes glow a forest green. Her bottom jaw drops open as dark green smoke pushes out of her mouth and curls around her feet. She says in a deep voice* one shall win, one shall lie. Who will hear a lovers cry? If u dare be the host. Suffer the curse of medusa's ghost!!!! *the green in her eyes fades back to hazel as she faints*

This book lacks the action and violence that has been a main staple for the series. The plot in this one leans towards mystical/spiritual prophecy. It just didn't work for me. Hopefully they bring a new character or two and freshen things up some. I'd like to see a quest to locate Ryan's son or maybe revisit Front Royal. I think maybe they have too many different writers working on the series and they don't appear to be in sync with one another.
