This is chapter 11 from New Century Book 2: Secret Rooms
Sharp-eyed doctor James Penrose and foul-mouthed boxer Abigail Grey are new recruits to the Cartographer Scouts, agents of the reunified US government. They set off across West Virginia, a dangerous wilderness now home to the savage victims of the wendigo outbreak.
Fortunately for James and Abigail their accompanying Captain is none other than sharpshooting legend Annie Oakley. What they find on their journey, however, is like nothing this world has seen before.
The late 19th century alternate America laid down in The Cartographer’s Handbook is explored up close and personal, through the eyes of these new heroes.
This is the second book in Phase 1 of the ongoing New Century series. The first five books can be read in any order and the sixth; SteamHeart brings many of the surviving heroes together.
