THE WORLD DIED LONG AGO The world died long ago, leaving only a few here and there to rebuild. Their world had once been grand and magnificent, but too much was lost in the years after the time known as the Dying. Knowledge that had been gained over centuries disappeared from the world, lost when those who carried that knowledge died with it. The population has grown again over the last centuries, but the world has not regained its lost knowledge or former glory. A few things survive, here and there, and scholars seek to uncover more of their Ancients lost technology. But in the midst of that comes the threat of war with a rival nation. The latest in a long line of such wars for the Kingdom of Soulan.

Review:

"ABSOLUTELY EXCEPTIONAL! N.C. Reed is rapidly becoming one of my all time favorite authors. To date I have read two of his novels and have been instantly "gripped" by the story, characters and wonderful writing of both - the surprising aspect is that neither of the books were my normal reading fare. This is a relatively long book that keeps the reader engrossed to the final page and beyond! I am waiting with baited breathe for the first sequel! Repeat - I don't normally read this type of novel. Out of all the post-apocalyptic survival fiction the long term (500 yrs post-"Dying Time") is definitely not my favorite, I'm more a short-term kind of person. Also I have little to no interest in "epic" or "alternate Earth" books. However, I have become absolutely hooked in finding out more of what happens to Parno (main character), Wo (sidekick), Stephanie (love interest) and the clan McLeod. The "wizard" Finn is an interesting character, one that I think was included both for fun and realism. READ THIS BOOK!!!! I think it will appeal to virtually everyone because the writing is exceptional. Yes there are minor editing errors here and there, as a bit of a perfectionist I noticed a few, however they will in no way spoil your enjoyment of the book. Just a final note - I am currently "registered" on only two author pages and I read an average of 300 books per year for the last 53yrs. I think N.C. Reed is about to become the third author I will actually "follow" on the net. READ THE BOOK!!!!" "WHAT AN OUTSTANDING NOVEL BY AN EXCELLENT AUTHOR. I thought Odd Billy Todd took the cake on novels but he has out done himself again. What an excellent novel with a gut busting story line, where this author comes up with these I do not know but will read all that they write. As one other reader has expressed the author has become one of my favorites of all times............As an old soldier who has fought on three continents, been led by real hero leaders as well as have lead men of the caliber written about in this particular novel is so real, so true, it brings back many memories and tears as well. This author has captured the true brotherhood of warriors asked to do the impossible, with little help except those who they are surrounded by, to fight, die and survive incomprehendable feats in time of war........ This author has captured what few who enjoy freedom and understand, he brings the heartache, the trials and tribulations a soldier, sailor, marine and airman must endure so others can sleep at night in freedom in their own homes. I would urge all old veterans to pick up this book to read, they will experience joys, tears and heartache remember from their time as warriors. Freedom is expensive more in lives than dollars, but few understand this who enjoy it, this author will give those who have NOT seen the elephant some idea what it is like to give it all for those who do not know or understand............... I will wait with baited breathe for the next book Parno's Destiny and as this book will not be satisfied till I finish it -Ric Harrison, "Currahee""
