Silas Morlock

478 pages7 hours


“Humanity built its
monolithic spires of hopes and dreams and tried to believe that the whole
sordid mess actually meant something.”

Terapolis is an urban sprawl of global proportions. The vast
city state has smothered whole nations, liberated humanity from the tides of
history; the place is ripe with secrets...

Here, billions of people live only to give themselves to The
Gestalt. An esoteric technology, said to unlock the secrets of creation, it
offers humanity the chance to realise its most-cherished and forbidden desires.

For Silas Morlock, enigmatic Master of MorTek, The Gestalt
is his greatest achievement, but little time remains to fulfil his purpose and
save Mankind from itself; death gathers, an ancient struggle between good and
evil nears its peak.

On the other side, the Incunabula;
bibliophiles who refuse to stop peddling the items most poisonous to the hold
The Gestalt has on human minds.

And then there’s Adam, the misfit dreamer pulled into a
conflict beyond his understanding. His own desire will take him on a terrifying
journey into the heart of darkness.

Poor Adam, he will learn the secrets of Terapolis; if they
don’t shatter his mind, he’ll become the unlikely saviour for good… or ill.

It’s a struggle played out in the shadows, where the lines
are blurred, and nothing is quite as it seems. For the lost souls embroiled,
the stakes are the very highest.

But secrets are for keeping, in the dark places…
