"There is power in your blood."
Beneath These Giants is the first book in my Urban Fantasy series telling the story of Deborah Sloane.
A fierce but reckless child of a dead terrorist, Deborah's life in 1980's Belfast changes forever when the voice of the vicious, but powerful spirit, Cassandra the Red invades her mind and warns her that the world as we know it is about to end.
It's up to Deborah and a band of misfits to meet the threat of a rogue god, a demonic arms-dealer, and the collapse of reality before the world is swallowed by darkness.
Beneath These Giants is currently being shopped around Literary Agencies and presses. Watch this space!!
"The Red Moon rises..."
We leap forward in time from the jolly 1980's setting of the first book to present-day London in the aftermath of the climax to Deborah Sloane's dark adventure with Cassandra the Red.
We follow the mysterious Bastard of Fate, Aine Woods, an orphan and abuse survivor with a terrible power in her blood who has hit the city's streets to hunt for evil men and monsters.
During one of her hunts, she is approached by a stranger and offered the chance to join a powerful organisation, under the personal invite of its legendary leader; Red Deb Sloane.
"There are no gods. Only Giants."
War has begun.
A Dark force lays siege to the Myriad and covers its holy lands with darkness and death. In the ensuing chaos, the Children of Fate are scattered.
On Earth, the year is 2022, and the Balance of the universe is thrown into disarray.
When the gifts bonded to Bastards of Fate suddenly fail, the Guardian of the Balance is tasked with uncovering why the light of the universe is going out.
As the list of allies dwindles, the Bastards must stop an ancient enemy’s plot to destroy the Giants of Creation, and confront a mysterious new Dark Soldier who wears the face of a fallen friend.
The journey that has spanned the lifetime of the universe comes to an end.
