Ryan Cawdor and his fellow survivalists emerge in a redoubt in which they discover a sleek superarmored personnel carrier bristling with weapons from predark days. As the companions leave the redoubt, a sudden beeping makes them realize why the builders were constructing a supermachine in the first place.
In the post-holocaust wastelands of 22nd-century America, precious little remains of life before the nuclear blowout. Legends circulate of Redoubts, secret preDark military bases with caches of food, medicine and, most important, weapons. Yet only a few of the ragged elite possess the arcane knowledge that enables them to locate and access these valuable storehouses.
In a hidden redoubt in Ohio, Ryan Cawdor and his band of warrior survivalists take possession of the ultimate Deathlands War Wag - a crude but effective tank called Leviathan. But having this steel - plated behemoth is a double-edged sword when they fall into the trap of Lady Ward of Novaville, who wants Leviathan for her own means of destruction and domination.
I've been reading the Deathland series chronologically and all of the books written by Laurence James are the best. On the other hand the books written by the other authors are horrible. This book doesn't even follow the previous story. There were 3 characters from the shadow world and in this book nowhere to be seen. Not even a mention of them. Where the hell are they? What happened to them? I want to know!! Story was bad, obviously. Action good as always. Characters, felt too familar. To the authors READ the previous book and be original in the story.
