A Mental Health driven thriller through the eyes of a young man who barely knows the definition of living.
Every character is real.
Every mental health related situation is real.
The places are all real.
All of them changed for the science fiction genre.
A disease of unknown origin is creeping into every piece of darkness within the United Kingdom, nothing on this scale has ever been seen by anyone alive and this story follows the young man as he battles his own demons, torn emotions, the choice between bad and awful.
The country swiftly falls under military rule and things are starting to fall apart, every little detail from councils to schools, power to food, healthcare and all other public services, all of them are covered and strained already, now though they have an excuse to go below the water.
This boy and others who fall into his path have to learn to not survive in the sense of an apocalypse but in the sense of getting by with their minds falling to pieces, traversing the falling apart country whilst being dragged back all the time by the claws of their own sanity.
FEAR with him as there is more to this disease than meets the eye.
UNRAVEL right beside him as he steps upon a path that better men would fall upon.
SCREAM with him as he loses things he didn’t even know he had.
CRY alongside him as he is forced onto a path that will only end one way or another.
BLEED with him as human life is spilt around every angle.
Stage one is infect.
Stage two is panic.
Stage three is fall to pieces.
Stage four is fight for what is left.
Grab his hand and fall right alongside him into the abyss of reality, things are pushed within these pages that some might not try, sadly though this is no fantasy, just a stretched reality.
Stand beside him scared to offer a hand as his Mental Health falls through the rafters of insanity, is he a puppet? Or will he gain control over a world that has never learnt from any lessons, until this one.

The tension of this story is immediately palpable and automatically I was hooked. Story development is very solid as is character development. This author’s style and descriptions truly make you feel like part of the story. His characters are so human you feel the pain they feel and see the imagery as they see it. Great work as always! – Katherine Burkett
