Prairie Song by Marn and Alyssa

A post-apocalyptic roadtrip across America. 

John is a former indentured farmhand, setting out in search of fresh water and an escape from his past. Cody is a traveling bounty hunter and musician, on the run from a debt he can’t repay. Friday is a lounge singer and burlesque dancer, fiercely protective of her friends, seeking adventure. Valerie is an orphan priest, weighed down by responsibility and guilt.

The four meet by circumstance in the new Wild West of a country ninety years post-apocalypse, slowly raising itself from the ashes. Together, they try to outrun, outgun, and outwit a gang of dangerous criminals, learning more about themselves and each other along the way.

Prairie Song is part Western, part roadtrip story, and all post-apocalyptic action tale, with a cast of diverse, LGBTQ protagonists. It deals with themes of displacement, trauma, loss, trust, and found families.

Note: Prairie Song contains some graphic violence and harsh language.

Many post-apocalyptic stories are hopeless and take place in the immediate aftermath of a disaster, but prariesong is more about people getting back to their lives and interacting with the various communities that have popped up in the post-apocalyptic wasteland than anything else.

It follows the story of John (who is fleeing his old life in Chokecherry), Cody (who is fleeing a gang), Val (a preacher) and Friday [more . . .]

Dec 15, 2019: I love the wild west/post apocalyptic feel of this. The characters are well fleshed out. You quickly come to care about them as you follow them along. There is plenty of adventure and intrigue. This one had me hooked from the beginning.
