Description

New York Times Bestseller: A young girl’s visions offer the last hope in a postapocalyptic wasteland in this “grand and disturbing adventure” (Dean Koontz).

A PBS Great American Read Top 100 Pick
 
Swan is a nine-year-old Idaho girl following her struggling mother from one trailer park to the next when she receives visions of doom—something far wider than the narrow scope of her own beleaguered life. In a blinding flash, nuclear bombs annihilate civilization, leaving only a few buried survivors to crawl onto a scorched landscape that was once America.
 
In Manhattan, a homeless woman stumbles from the sewers, guided by the prophecies of a mysterious amulet, and pursued by something wicked; on Idaho’s Blue Dome Mountain, an orphaned boy falls under the influence of depraved survivalists and discovers the value of a killer instinct; and amid the devastating dust storms on the Great Plains of Nebraska, Swan forms a heart-and-soul bond with an unlikely new companion. Soon they will cross paths. But only Swan knows that they must endure more than just a trek across an irradiated country of mutated animals, starvation, madmen, and wasteland warriors.
 
Swan’s visions tell of a coming malevolent force. It’s a shape-shifting embodiment of the apocalypse, and of all that is evil and despairing. And it’s hell-bent on destroying the last hope of goodness and purity in the world. Swan is that hope. Now, she must fight not only for her own survival, but for that of all mankind.
 
A winner of the Bram Stoker Award and a finalist for the World Fantasy Award, Swan Song has become a modern classic, called “a chilling vision that keeps you turning pages to the shocking end” by John Saul and “a long, satisfying look at hell and salvation” by Publishers Weekly.

Amazing

This is, by far, one of the most amazing books I have ever read. I began reading King and Straub several years ago and happened upon this book by Robert McCammon. I thought I'd give it a try thinking it would never compare to King. I was so wrong!!! I have read this book three times over the years and purchased it on my iPad so I can read it once again. To me, it is comparable to The Talisman by King and Straub. Just as well written and it kept me enthralled through out the entire book from start to finish. I would recommend this book to anyone!!! Great writing!

Very good book

I enjoyed this book but i read it shortly after reading Steven King's book The Stand, hence only 4 stars.
I would have enjoyed it more if the violence was turned down a bit. The torture, and killing infants was way too much for me.

AWESOME

Such an awesome read!! The characters make you feel like your living the tale with them... excellent read!!
