Gan Moondark had united the people of what used to be Seattle. Chief among his supporters were the Rose Priestess Sylah and the strangers with the magical weapons -- the survivors of centuries in cryogenic sleep. Now Sylah and two of the strangers, Tate and Conway, begin an odyssey that will either or destroy what remains of the human race . . . .

Sequel to Warrior (1990--not seen), McQuinn's fantasy/science- fiction hybrid saga of religious warfare set in a Pacific Northwest five hundred years after a nuclear and biological war. The struggle between the orthodox Church and the visionary Rose Priestess Sylah continues, the latter now aided by two survivors from our own times--the soldiers Tate and Conway, who have spent the intervening centuries in cryogenic sleep. McQuinn's huge, theologically dense yarn is dauntingly difficult for newcomers to approach, nor will they find much sympathy in his psychotic remnant populations caught up in a whirl of New Age barbarism and witchcraft. Presumably, however, Warrior fans will wish to investigate. -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.From Booklist:
The sequel to McQuinn's Warrior (1990) takes the victorious Gan Moondark and the Rose Priestess Sylah away from post-holocaust Seattle in a search for ancient wisdom. But there are religious protests against the quest, and one of the two "strangers," erstwhile supporters of Gan who survived the holocaust because they were cryogenically suspended before it happened, has become a berserker, more menace than help. Like its predecessor, Wanderer leaves nothing to be desired as thoughtful entertainment; it is literate, well-paced, knowledgeable about war and warriors, and shows care and thought in both world building and characterization.
