"In the frozen wastes of the distant future, a killer known as Harrow prepares for his final battle. Technocratic elites have poisoned his world, enslaved his neighbors, and left his entire people destitute and depraved. Now this lone guided missile of a man is willing to shed the last tatters of his humanity to exact his vengeance.

In this first volume of the Next Man Saga, J.M. Salyards presents a novel that sweeps from the apocalyptic Outlands to the palatial luxury of the corridors of power, and finds Harrow about to begin a war of annihilation. Before he can, he discovers allies who might bring him back from the brink. A psycho-spiritualist teenage boy and a disgraced princess of the elites may give Harrow a final tether to life, and as wills and fists collide, the unwilling hero must choose between a future beyond his victory, or death as his only chance for peace."

Review:

Reviewed by Kathryn Bennett for Readers' Favorite
5/5 Shadow of the Last Men by J.M. Salyards is a gripping and engaging story and a fantastic start to a series that I cannot wait to dig deeper into. J.M. Salyards has created a host of likable characters that make for the perfect ensemble in this book. I have spent a lot of time wondering if Harrow or Alouine was my favorite and in the end I decided they both were, because the character development is really that solid. If you are into a good solid adventure read and the post apocalyptic genre I highly recommend this read.

"Shadow of the Last Men has set the stage with a cast of likeable characters and a world that fuses psycho-spiritual and technological elements. Its final chapters may be as dark as the early ones, but as far as the story goes, it seems the future for The Next Man Saga is bright."

"This is indeed a very action packed book bound together by alluring expressive words. A standing ovation for the author whom I absolutely adore, for having brought to us a book of fine quality. I was simply captivated by just how wonderfully written this book was, and simply cannot express my unceasing adoration for the author who managed to keep me captured  throughout the entire book."

"I have never encountered such a sophisticated writing style in such a book before, though if I have, very rarely. J.M Salyards has a particular distinct talent..."
