This is definitely a story worthy to be seen on film!

I was amazed on how the story drew me out of the reverie thinking that this is just an average story. The plot was really something you wouldn’t see in any other book. It was written with complexity yet comprehensible leaving you grasping every page in a hurry to finish the book. The main characters are so complicated enough to make you love them and hate them at the same time. They have multi-faceted personalities that are believable enough to make the story all the more interesting. Despite several sub-plots, it doesn’t lose your focus at all but leads you on to the story’s climax. It is designed so well that they became a prominent add-up in the story by providing more impact. The scenic descriptions are conclusive as well proving that the story is thoroughly researched from beginning to end. I wouldn’t be surprised if a film adaptation comes up for this one. With this kind of ingenious writing, the sequel is definitely worth waiting for.

This is definitely a book for keeps especially to those sci-fi addicts who wants something intricate enough to leave you hanging on the edge.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 149097749X, Paperback)

At 16 Matt Feargal dreamed of little else but escaping his mother, her alcoholism, the incessant raiding of his stash, and the narrow confines of Dilmun. There was little enough to hold him beyond the distractions of petty crime, the ganja he grew in a nearby wood, and a girlfriend more interested in the weed than him. One ray of sunshine—a chance encounter with Jonah Salt living just north of his grow. Salt, the kid believed, had a plan that would net Feargal enough to put Dilmun behind him. In a cafe, however, a woman wanted a spliff—and life was looking up. But… At first the signs were small and easily dismissed—the light was off, the shadow wasn’t really a lope; the river broke not quite right in the moonlight, all just magical thinking. Of course there was the fox in The Wood—but that had to have been rabid. On top of all the signs and wonders there was, perhaps, the return of Zakara Botrous—his father. With this followed the rumours brought from Eastern Mexico and the Cinn—a great and continuous malignity. Look for Volumes II & III in this trilogy in the near future Volume II: End Times Inc., January 2014 Volume III: Apocalypse Culture, Spring 2014
