The Cautious Traveller's Guide to the Wastelands (2024)
Sarah Brooks
"I was completely transported by this book, lost in its world and mysteries, astounded by its beauty, and full of admiration for its humanity. I loved every second I spent with it, and urge everybody to pick up a copy. It's an astonishing journey."

The Gathering (2024)
C J Tudor
"C.J. Tudor is getting better and bolder with every novel, and the bar was pretty high to start with. THE GATHERING is an incredibly exciting novel, tightly plotted and brilliantly tense, with an atmosphere you could eat with a spoon."

Witness X (2024)
Sarah Moorhead
"Sarah's got such talent and it shines though every page."
