Product Description

Nico Storm and his father Willem drive a truck filled with essential supplies through a desolate land. They are among the few in South Africa―and the world, as far as they know―to have survived a devastating virus which has swept through the country. Their world turned upside down, Nico realizes that his superb marksmanship and cool head mean he is destined to be his father's protector, even though he is still only a boy.

But Willem Storm, though not a fighter, is both a thinker and a leader, a wise and compassionate man with a vision for a new community that survivors will rebuild from the ruins. And so Amanzi is founded, drawing Storm's "homeless and tempest-tost"―starting with Melinda Swanevelder, whom they rescued from brutal thugs; Hennie Flaai, with his vital Cessna plane; Beryl Fortuin, with her ragtag group of orphans; and Domingo, the man with the tattooed hand, whom Nico knows immediately is someone you want on your side. And then there is Sofia Bergman, the most beautiful girl that Nico has ever seen, who changes everything.

So the community grows―and with each step forward, as resources increase, so do the challenges they must face―not just from the attacks of biker brigands, but also from within.


"Narrator Will Damron employs an array of voices for the residents of the benevolent community created by Willem Storm…. And to a narrator who pays attention to character development.” —AudioFile
