Fast forward and the boy earns his name in the circle years later to become Var the stick, the hero of this story.
It turns out that, all this time, Sos has been planning to attack the Mountain — the underworld where he was turned into the terminator-esque brute he became. This society a secretive group descended from pre-Blast scientists makes all the weapons and equipment the Crazies use but they also desire that the Empire be destroyed and that the nomad warriors remain ignorant.
When battle commences, Sos and Bob leader of the underworld decide to pit champion against champion in combat to determine which society should rule the other. Without knowing the truth of the matter, the two fighters concoct a story to the effect that Var won. Consequently, the Master of the Empire vows to kill Var.
The boy is then forced to go on the run with Soli in a turn of the absurd for if even one of them knew who was who it would all be solved with a mere conversation. As it is the two youngsters go on an epic journey across the post-apocalyptic world. Encountering bizarre female tribes, strange Greek societies obsessed with human sacrifice and, in the end, China.

Not only are they falsely advertised but they went to the effort to remove the actual size from the listing pictures. Very deceptive. January 13, - Published on Amazon. There is not a lot I can say about self-sticking notes that hasn't already been said. They are small, perfect for sticking quick notes on almost anything. They are made of paper, a nice quality paper even though they are a different brand than the "leader" , and they stick well.
The quantity is nice as well, because I keep them all over the house, as well as lose them on my desktop. Usually, at least one pad can be found under my computer keyboard. Well done Highland.
