Book Review: Wasteland Fairytale by Mike E.O. Turner

Wasteland Fairytale
By Mike E.O. Turner

★★★/★★★★★
The world has ended. Mankind is reduced to scavenging in the dust. 

Grizzled veteran Papa Bear found the young girl among the ruins of a long forgotten city and has sworn to protect her no matter what.

But violence is around every corner and the pair are forced into a mission that could doom mankind forever. All the while, the girl is quickly learning that Papa Bear's protection comes with its own terrible conditions.

I picked this book up for free just over a year ago and slowly worked my way through it in between other books.

I like it, it's a simple story told in a unique voice. A bit vague at times and more worded in mystery and metaphor than facts so some things are muddled, including a seemingly important revelation that I won't spoil but left me sort of confused. I re-read the passage a few times for some sort of concrete clues as to what happened but I was still a bit bewildered. And it's at the last 10% of the book.

But it's an interesting post-apocalyptic story with a deeply Western feel and a hint of steampunk. I don't read or watch many Westerns so to me this felt fresh.

It's book one of a series and I'm not sure it did enough to get me to read book 2, I have to think about it.

In all, it's wholly different than anything I've read so I'm glad I gave it a chance.
