Wander: A Rucksack Universe Novel | Anthony St. Clair
Follow the Black Road. No friends, no texts, no nothing. In Morocco, Wander just wants a solitary birthday walk. Instead, two strange trees lead the lone traveler to the ultimate journey. Marooned in a scarred world both different and familiar, Wander tries to make sense of an Ireland that has no Internet or Guinness, but abounds with odd companions. Wander falls in with Awen, a mysterious old woman, and Faddah Rucksack, a bewildering ragged man. He's as out of place as Wander but must confront past mistakes and a shadow threatening the future. The unlikely trio undertakes a difficult adventure of the road—and the heart. Their only path is a place none travel: the Black Road that remains after a world-altering catastrophe.
