Wild boy Tarin is determined not to be captured by the men who live in the decaying Before Times buildings on the other side of Tarin's woodland home, but he's just as determined to protect the younger boys in the woods.
No one remembers being a child or knows where all the women have gone or how society crumbled, but for as long as they can remember, boys have lived in the woods and are hunted by the men each Fall. Some boys believe in a mysterious Lady who protects them, while others think the men are magic. Tarin knows better - he's met a man, and escaped by stabbing him.
Hunted through the woods as he tries to protect the weaker Cory, Tarin is trapped and claimed by the very man he knifed. All Tarin wants is to stay in the woods and not have to get 'civilized,' but he's carried off into a different world of rules and discipline. Will he be able to survive now that he is Out of the Woods?

Think 'Rape of Peter Pan'. I'd say you have to be able to get past the rather unsettling "mental" age of the boys and enjoy the kink of generational stories. The post apocalyptic universe starts out as Neverland, then quickly shifts into something like the Mad Max 'Thunderdome' one, except there are no female characters, except for a goddess type all the males worship/fear. I bought the sequel and the short story immediately upon finishing the first book, even though the story is pretty unsettling. It just depends what 'pings' on your arousal radar. A reviewer on another site called it "a demented dystopia" created to write really weird sex scenes." This may not be a review so much as therapy. Having said all that, I want to read more in that universe. **for readers of online fanfic sites, it is reminds me of alpha/omega dynamics and the universe where all the women die/are barren**
