Uncaged Review: This short story is a prequel to the upcoming novel, Wizard of the Wasteland, and it’s a free read by signing up for the newsletter. It’s a good short story – a dystopian world where many are addicted to a drug called plez. An addict finds temporary sanctuary but he’ll have to kick his addiction to stay.
A lot happens in a short amount of time, and the author does a good job with it. It also did a good job getting my interest up for the main novel coming in 2017. Reviewed by Cyrene
