A Blight has taken out most of the humans on Earth. Which leaves the earth open for the Wilderness and mythological creatures to resurface. Prosper Monday is the main protagonist, trying to become a hunter, rather then a gather. We are introduced to Prosper Monday, the main protaginist of the story and her friend Angus (that of the rat tail) as they are out in Manhattan hunting and bag a deer. Her grandfather Asa Monday heads out to find out why the other people in the community have lost connect with him and possibly there might a cure for The Blight.
I have mixed feelings about this series seeing as it's taking me along time to figure out the review. There were good elements in there if you took them out and put them in different part of the series. It seem like a patch-work quilt of crazies and mythological beasts. Which I felt should have been introduced over time. There is no explanation about The Blight. It's simply a endemic disease that took out most of the population. The Fey eat humans and there are humans taking the remains of others and stitching themselves back together. It's just too much to take it all at once. All these characters could have had interesting back stories, but they weren't expressed that way and that's what partial disappointed me. I am not a girl that is into fairies or the Sidhe. I try to steer clear since they are my least favorite creature.
This book is pretty savage. It's an interesting world, completely unforgiving, but definitely more of an exploration of that world than the character driven pieces I usually go for. The characters aren't well developed yet, but it is a first book. I'll have to look into the next.
