Cannibal-King, by Andrew M. Reichart, is the spectacular finale to the City of the Watcher trilogy.
In this volume, the Cannibal-King, glimpsed at the end of Weird Luck in the City of the Watcher and Time Traveling Blues in the City of the Watcher, takes center stage. Now we hear the story straight from the mouth of this horseman of the apocalypse.
Fleeing a post-apocalyptic fascist USA, revolutionaries Jack and Beth Waghalter find themselves transported to the wilderness outside the City of the Watcher. The wild folk of the desert and forest greet him as their messianic “Cannibal-King” as foretold centuries ago, destined to lead them against the Watcher, the warlock tyrant who rules over them all.
Jack and Beth are stumped as to what to do. Clearly no one in this equation shares their ethics or politics. But the evils of the Watcher grow increasingly evident – along with the real possibility of defeating his army. If they can overthrow an evil dictator, shouldn’t they? Even if they don’t know the world well enough to anticipate what might fill the vacuum? Desperate for a win after their tribulations on Earth, the temptation is strong….
What’s the worst that could happen?
