About the Books
BACK IN THE EARLY DAYS of smartphones and hashtags and notifications, we had no idea what horrors it would one day lead to. Somewhere in the future, social profile scores, trollbots, and the flood of millions of calloused opinions on the nets has allowed for the Arcadian government to isolate the entire town of New Thebes, using its people for their cruel, ongoing experiments, while the rest of the world remains completely oblivious to what’s happening.At the same time, Sara Hunter, a young blacksmith in New Thebes, is devastated by the sudden disappearance of her lover, Benjamin Descartes, who vanished without a word last week, amidst rumours of a mysterious man who had been seen stalking the shadows of the town. Sara’s desperate search for clues as to Ben’s whereabouts will lead her down a rabbit hole that she could never have expected, as she undertakes a journey that will reveal the very nature of reality…and the vast terrors that it holds. At once an unforgettable love story, a breathtaking vision of the future, and a scathing satire of our modern times, This Crow Above Me is sure to hold a place in readers’ hearts and minds long after the last page.
