I just wanted to leave you a note to tell you that I just finished reading another of your book recommendations. This time, it was The Rule of Stephens by Timothy Taylor and I loved it. I'm not entirely sure why I loved it since there were unanswered mysteries like what exactly happened to all of the survivors but I did.
So, thank you for the suggestion. Next time I read one of your recommendations, it's The Palace by Chelsea Quinn Yarbo.
