What to expect

Hungry and alone in the desert, Kid is picked up on the side of the road by Wolf, Dolly, Tank and Pretty Boy: a raider crew with a big, bad reputation and even bigger guns.
But as they journey across the wasteland, Kid learns that her saviours are hiding a terrible secret. In a world that’s lost its humanity, how long will Kid stay hungry before she loses hers?

‘A full throttle, sand-in-your-eyes, no holds barred ride through a Mad Max-style wasteland’ Lila Bowen (aka Delilah S. Dawson), author of Wake of Vultures

Critics Review

  • A full throttle, sand-in-your-eyes, no holds barred ride through a Mad Max-style wasteland

    Lila Bowen (aka Delilah S. Dawson), author of WAKE OF VULTURES
  • A constant rollercoaster of chases, explosions, double dealing and backstabbing . . . Pure undiluted high octane anarchy

    The Eloquent Page
  • Merbeth centers the humanity of the bad guys in her gleeful postapocalyptic gore-fest debut . . . [she] makes it hard not to root for her quirky, amoral killing machines

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)
  • If you like bloodshed, mayhem and chaos – and don’t we all, even if we’d rather not admit it? – then this is the book for you . . . an action-packed, glorious read

    Blue Book Balloon
  • Filled with dark humor, wit, and a realistic dystopian setting, Bite plays with the idea of who the good guys are in such a harsh world. Think Carl Hiaasen thriller set in a Mad Max world, and you have an idea of what to expect

  • If you think you could never sympathize with killers and cannibals, think again, Merbeth makes them practically irresistible . . . the most fun I’ve had in ages
