Fast-paced, enormously cinematic, and full of inventiveworld-building, diverse characters, and moral complexity, Stranger is speculative fiction and its best-and its most true toour lives.
Many generations ago, a mysterious cataclysm struck theworld. Governments collapsed and people scattered to rebuild where they could.A mutation called the Change arose, granting some people unique powers. Though thearea once known as Los Angeles retains its cultural diversity, its technologicalmarvels have faded into legend. "Las Anclas" now resembles a Wild West frontiertown-where the Sheriff possesses superhuman strength, the doctor can warp timeto heal his patients, and the distant ruins of an ancient city bristle withdeadly crystalline trees that take their jewellike colors from the clothes ofthe people they killed.
Teenage prospector Ross Juarez's best find ever-an ancientbook he doesn't know how to read-nearly costs him his life when a bounty hunteris sent to kill him and steal the book. Ross barely makes it to Las Anclas,bringing with him a precious artifact, a power no one has ever had before, anda whole lot of trouble.
