“The Earth Shaker” has wiped Los Angeles of all evidence of civilization, leaving Pen alone to survive in the ruins. She then begins to search for her family, an adventure that parallels The Odyssey and leads her to finding companions in Hex, Ez, and Ash. The story alternates between Pen’s flashbacks and the group’s journey toward Las Vegas, telling of family bonds and the will to survive.

For anyone who is interested in Greek mythology, the modern parallels to The Odyssey are enjoyable to read through. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in dystopian novels and is looking for a change of pace from 1984 and Brave New World to a more fantastic, poetic writing style.
