In a post-apocalyptic future, humanity survives within a single city run by a shadowy benefactor known only as The Family. Each week the death lottery claims more lives and Gerry Cardle, head of the lottery, inexplicably finds himself next on the list.
Something’s wrong with the system. A deadly artificial intelligence has breached security. Gerry has just 7 days to live. Forced off the grid, Gerry has to do the unthinkable: willingly leave the city. What he finds in the abandoned lands will shatter his perception of what it means to be human. Everything he had been told before was a lie.
In a deadly world of conspiracies, Gerry has to sacrifice everything he loves in order to save it, and time is running out.

The genetic secret to all life in the universe revealed, and so begins the countdown to Armageddon.
For over seven hundred and fifty years the harvesters had been voyaging into deep space, but each journey was becoming longer and more dangerous, because suitable planets were getting fewer and more difficult for the scouts to discover. Terrillia was a dying planet and nothing could be done to prevent the inevitable.
Master Maulik carried the responsibilities of feeding his race with pride, and he performed his harvesting duties with diligence and compassion… yet his heart longed for adventure.
But it is often dangerous to long, for sometimes the heart receives that which it desires most, and Maulik finds himself plunged into a game of political intrigue and brinkmanship that could alter the balance of power in his galaxy as rival species form an uneasy alliance.
For the ultimate doom approaches.
And as opposing factions draw together he finds himself a pawn in the great game, his only true ally, his new-found friend, the Kressa.
Discover how the story begins, the preparations for war, deceit and double-dealing, plans within plans, the strangest of friendships… and an entire race reduced to the status of livestock.
