Stray (Book 2)
“The multifaceted deceits going on in all aspects of society make it impossible to understand how it continues to function… Each interaction leaves the reader on bated breath hoping that this will not be the time Emery is caught. Not everyone can be saved; not every danger is external.” – If You Like Books
One of my favorite aspects of Stray is how the uncertainty, fear, and urgency is felt throughout the novel. We, as readers, are made to empathize with Emery as he races against not just the odds, but the clock. We cringe with him as he uncovers truths, and feel deep sadness for the past secrets he shares… Stray has a fantastic series of heart-pounding scenes where Emery is tested beyond his limits, and where the story reaches suspenseful climaxes. Fuller has a skill for creating anticipation and delivering what the reader seeks with style. – Confessions of a Book Addict
In the depths of winter, Emery is digging.
Two months after the conclusion of Mutt, he is building an underground highway into the walled city of Rittenhouse to smuggle food and medicine to those living in the wasteland outside. When the gateman Green comes to him with news of a secret shipment and plans to intercept it, Emery sees a chance at redemption for his past failings. But as the search pulls him into a broadening web of conspiracy, his closest friends worry he is in too deep, determined find the shipment–or lose everything.
Stray is the sequel to the smash dystopian novel Mutt and the second book of the Rittenhouse Saga.
Mutt (Book 1)
“Fuller’s writing is effortless…some moments in this book will break your heart, while others will make you just as angry as the characters themselves. A fantastic debut.” – Confessions of a Book Addict
“I enjoyed every page of this book! From the moment I picked it up I couldn’t put it down for the life of me…now the only thing I’m really going to dread is waiting for the next installment to come out!” – The Book Blabber
“You promised you’d take me to see the king.”
Mutt is set in a ruined mid-Atlantic city centuries after a disaster wipes out most of the world’s population. Emery, a young man living in the walled city of Rittenhouse, has taken it upon himself to rescue “mutts,” as the citizens of Rittenhouse call the impoverished masses outside. When Timothy, a boy afflicted with a fatal illness, seeks Emery’s help, the two embark on a deadly errand to secure the medicine Timothy needs. This mission takes them from the safety of Rittenhouse into the wasteland outside it, where ancient superstitions are reborn and humanity struggles to survive amidst the ruins of a fallen American metropolis.
