Set in post-apocalyptic Ontario, the book opens with a very Western feel. A laconic stranger walks into a small isolated town. Village of Blackstock, Population Nobody knows the armed newcomer but soon there is someone spreading rumors about him. This first part of the book is rather slow and peaceful, almost quaint.

Out of the irradiated wastes comes a soldier. On the far edge of the trade routes, in a small farming community, there lives a mechanic. Two men from a previous era, surviving through steel and cunning in a world of degenerated philosophy; a world where the old tech is treated with savage, animistic worship. A storm is coming. When civilization is scattered and broken, what is a man supposed to do? It explores the ideas of masculinity, brotherhood, social evolution, epistemology, and the nature of violence.

I really enjoyed it, and I think a lot of the enjoyment came from it being set in a post-apocalyptic world, where the greater social order has collapsed, and all that is left are small communities of people who know each other, and are un-trusting of outsiders. At this point in real life history, it seems as if anything could happen. One seemingly likely outcome is a collapse of confidence in the currency, making the only effective commerce direct barter, gold, or some other agreed upon store of value. This would make value transactions over long distances difficult. We have evolved to enjoy seeing a story painted in our mind by a good story teller, because those of us who perked up and listened to the stories, learned valuable information which gave us advantages later. As Aurini hooks us on his heroes, we become invested in their success. As we see the dangers they face, and the normal precautions they take when traveling out in a law-less badlands, we find our amygdalae triggered by the threats which present themselves, and then quieted by the security measures they take, and we file away the tricks and techniques they use.
