One thing is for sure, no empire will remain intact when The Wrack arrives

My rating 4.6
The fantasy book “The Wrack” by John Bierce surprised me with a story because there is no single protagonist, the main antihero is The Wrack disease which is slowly destroying the world in which the plot of the book is set. But I read the book with enthusiasm and I liked the story. The point of the whole plot is that the whole world can be destroyed regardless of beliefs and differences among empires, and that small people can do great things. When one empire falls, other empires in the region want to take advantage of the situation, but if that empire falls because of the plague of disease, what price of greed should be paid by those who want to seize its wealth. An interesting idea runs through the story, which would happen after a terrible disease that destroys everything in its path. What would the survivors do and how would they behave, the rulers in power. The whole world will have to change if they want to survive a cataclysm of enormous proportions in which no one is safe, be it rich or poor. One thing is for sure, no empire will remain intact when The Wrack arrives. I honestly enjoyed the story and would recommend the book to Fantasy fans.
