“An inventive, darkly fascinating world, rich in menace and challenges.”
– Rowena Cory Daniells, author of the King Rolen’s Kin Trilogy and The Outcast Chronicles

Shale is in trouble – the creature-filled darkness known as the Roil is expanding, consuming the land, swallowing cities whole.

The First Part of the Nightbound Land Duology

Shale is dying. A vast, chaotic, monster-bearing storm known only as the Roil is expanding, consuming the land.

Where once there were twelve great cities, now only four remain, and their borders are being threatened by the growing cloud of darkness. The last humans are fighting back with ever more bizarre new machines. But one by one the defences are failing. And the Roil continues to grow.

With the land in turmoil, it’s up to a decadent wastrel, a four thousand year-old man, and a young woman intent on revenge to try to save their city… and the world.
