Andrew Krivak – The Bear


In an Edenic future, a girl and her father live close to the land in the shadow of a lone mountain. They possess a few remnants of civilization: some books, a pane of glass, a set of flint and steel, a comb. The father teaches the girl how to fish and hunt, the secrets of the seasons and the stars. He is preparing her for an adulthood in harmony with nature, for they are the last of humankind. But when the girl finds herself alone in an unknown landscape, it is a bear that will lead her back home through a vast wilderness that offers the greatest lessons of all, if she can only learn to listen.

A cautionary tale of human fragility, of love and loss, The Bear is a stunning tribute to the beauty of nature’s dominion.

I’ve read a few Apocalyptic series and this one has the creepiest villains I’ve ever heard of. Creepy….Stephen King creepy. RC Bray is a genius narrator. I knew he was excellent at military type apocalypse stories(Arisen) but hearing him portray the “clowns” literally made my flesh crawl even without the clown makeup. I had to stop listening for an hour or so to get rid of the nerves. Its a good story. Well written. Well worth one of my valuable credits.
