New York Times bestselling author Robert McCammon's prescient and "shocking" (John Saul) vision of a post-apocalyptic US comes to life in his classic epic of terror and renewal.

In a wasteland born of rage and fear, populated by monstrous creatures and marauding armies, Earth's last survivors have been drawn into a final battle between good and evil that will decide the fate of humanity. There's Sister, who discovers a strange and transformative glass artifact in the destroyed Manhattan streets...Joshua Hutchins, the pro wrestler who takes refuge from the nuclear fallout at a Nebraska gas station...and Swan, a young girl possessing special powers, who travels alongside Josh to a Missouri town where healing and recovery can begin with her gifts. But the ancient force behind earth's devastation is scouring the walking wounded for recruits for its relentless army...beginning with Swan herself.

As per most of the comments here, very similar setting to "The Stand". Facing a post-apocalyptic wasteland, all the travelers (surviving ones, that is) meet up with their own motives. Basically a nuclear warfare answer to Stephen King's biological one (Captain Tripps). I much prefer Randall Flagg to "Friend" as the main villain in the respective books, as there was quite a bit more development behind the former. The rest of the characters,however, are pretty much on par.

Definitely similar to "The Stand". But very well written. I really enjoyed this book. And it got me to read more McCammon.

Think Stephen King's The Stand with more violence.
