Playing with Phyre

Publisher: Catnip

His family killed and his village laid to waste by the ruthless Sadar forces, the boy Haden and his mute companion Decker head off into the wastelands in search of vengeance. Meanwhile, in the Sadar territory a scientist has discovered phyre: a powerful explosive that could grant dominion over the world to the malevolent Dasmad Usshien.

Drawing on the imagery of the Old West, this highly-charged and exciting thriller is packed with memorable incidents, lively characters, and a pace that never slackens. While perhaps not a work to turn to in search of subtlety or philosophical nuance, Playing with Phyre will appeal to fans of a good adventure story satisfyingly told.
