Matt Bone’s Endless, the first book in the Crescent fantasy series, is out now via Astro Impossible Books.
Earth is dead. Crescent lives.
After an inexplicable catastrophe on Earth, John Bridgeman is left to scrap out a solitary existence, surrounded by bodies and haunted by the girlfriend he cannot allow to die. His headaches are increasingly debilitating. Even his senses are turning against him: amongst the desolate streets is a light which moves as if alive. The onset of insanity, he assumes, and yet… why does he feel like he is being hunted?
John’s fate is entwined with that of Crescent: a world teeming with life both human and supernatural, where Spirit storms rack the skies and rumours of a terrible army in the North have the great nations in unrest. Crescent is John’s only chance to rediscover the bonds of life and love, but this perilous yet extraordinary world could also lead him to lose everything all over again.
