Cover reveal: Knight of the Wasteland (Wasteland book 2)

Abel wanders the wastes, scavenging to survive as he searches for a reason to live.

He discovers a young boy suffering the same addiction that almost killed him.

Terrified of being alone, Abel takes the child under his wing, promising to free him from drugs and offering him a new life.

As he battles his addiction, the kid reveals how he escaped from the brutal gang The Family after being held as a slave in their drug factory.

When the boy vanishes following a run-in with the gang, Abel doesn’t know if the kid was taken or if he chose his old life. Abel can’t just walk away — he’s finally found something to hold onto.

Risking everything he has left, he must journey through the dead city to find out the truth…

If you like fresh takes on post-apocalyptic fiction, you’ll love Jon Cronshaw’s gripping follow-up to Wizard of the Wasteland.
