The world has entered a new Dark Age. There is no internet,
no government, and nature is biting back. The Before times
have gone; food is scarce, and the world is a hostile place
where things are not always as they seem.
Sorrel’s home is destroyed by a gang of marauding mutants who snatch her brother and enslave her boyfriend. She sets out after them, embarking on a journey fraught with danger. In The New Dark trilogy we follow Sorrel on her quest in a world where survival depends on the kindness of strangers, and close friends make the bitterest of enemies.
From the howling of wolves and the layering of bones to the
fight for the Jacobite cause. From bloody battles and fields
running red with blood to crowded gaols and prison hulks. From
riots and rebellions, to pink-cheeked herring girls and a
mother who risked all for her son. From slavery and woe to
friendship and love. Though she may be small, Isle Martin is a
gem of an island punching well above her size.
Coming soon - the true story of this very special Scottish island.
