It’s the end of civilisation. The remnants of society are hanging on to the edge of survival, having retreated behind walls, while prisoners roam in the wide-open space beyond.
But is anybody free?
Finbarl is a guard defending the walls of Athenia, fighting to keep the flame of civilisation burning. It is the only world he knows and one he’s willing to die for.
But when he intervenes to protect a boy and his mother from a fellow guard, little does he realise his world is about to unravel, setting him upon a dangerous journey of betrayal,
heartbreak and discovery.
