After surviving the Infection and a perilous journey through the wasteland that was once the United States, Carly and Justin have found a safe home in the isolated town of Colby.
Even so, balancing the duties of survival and a growing family isn’t easy. As they emerge as leaders, they face difficult questions about justice in a lawless land, basic human rights, and freedom in a world where strength defines worth. More than ever, they have to rely on one another for strength and support during the darkest of times.
The Crisis is far from over. Their fences won’t keep the world out forever, and a new threat is emerging—a gang of predators who see the town as easy pickings. When danger looms over Colby, Carly must decide how far she’ll go to protect those she loves. 

It’s a journey down the long and broken road through The Land of the Shadow.

Praise for The Land of The Shadow:

“What a ride! Carly and Justin are people that I’d like on my side, and on the side of my community. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a story that will keep you glued to your reader or flipping pages in a paperback just as quickly as you can.”Kathie Spitz



I don’t normally read a lot of dystopian type books, but this is the follow up to The End of All Things which I really enjoyed so I had to see how the story continued. Justin and Carly are raising their daughter Dagney in the town of Colby. The town has shut itself off from the rest of the world as much as it can to prevent The Infection from hitting them again. (sort of reminded me of that TV show Jericho from a few years back). They are dealing with normal issues – trying to grow enough food for the town, protect themselves from outsiders and try to have as normal a life as possible.

There were many parts of the book where I was on the edge of my seat wondering how the scene would play out. They have normal issues like any of us would have despite their situation. I like Carly’s optimism and Justin’s reality and they somehow make it work in the town.

The book ended with something of a cliffhanger so I’m hoping that means this is a trilogy and there will be a third book to wrap everything up. We don’t know what is happening across the globe or how many people are still alive. Plus there are some scenes in the book that demand further explanation that tie to Justin’s military background and even Carly’s father.

We give this book 5 paws and cannot wait for book 3!
