Below the Surface

A Threads of Dreams Prequel

The twins’ bond kept them together through the death of their parents, the memory wipe, and assignment to separate work divisions in the Towers of Refuge, the only surviving habitat in their flooded post eco-disaster city.

But when protective older sister Ange follows carefree Amy into the abandoned lower reaches of the towers, the secrets they discover below the waterline could sever their bond for good.

A dystopian dark fantasy that ranges from sterile towers to glittering clubs and abandoned tunnels, this prequel novella takes places less than a decade before Blind the Eyes and blends monsters and magic with near-future post eco-disaster cityscapes.

Coming Summer 2018. Free exclusively to newsletter subscribers.
