Description

Shale is in trouble - the creature-filled darkness known as the Roil is expanding, consuming the land, swallowing cities whole. Where once there were 12 metropolises, now only 4 remain.

It's up to a drug addict, an old man and a woman bent on revenge to try to save their city - and the world.

File Under: Fantasy [ End Of The World | The Darkness Approaches | Addiction | On The Edge ]

e-book ISBN: 9780857661852



About the Author
Trent Jamieson claims to be a bit lazy and a bit vague, and if he could have a superpower, it would be to be a little bit less lazy and a little bit less vague. Oh, and he's won a couple of awards - even people that are a little bit lazy, and a little bit vague, can win those too.

We don't believe a word of it, of course. The author lives in Brisbane, Australia.
