"Insightful and intriguing... a great read." - Alice Grundy, Seizure

A dark, fast-paced novella set in dystopian Australia that questions your humanity. Something is awake.

Harriet’s wife, Katherine, is dying from an insidious virus that threatens humanity – and this is not just any disease.  This virus makes people literally disappear, swallowed by a rapidly evolving enemy.  Desperate to find a way to save her love, Harriet must move fast to discover a cure.  She’ll strive to find a way to defeat the virus before it takes Katherine, no matter the cost.

A cost that Lady Trinh, head of the Australian government, cannot bear.  From her seat in Brisbane's protectorate, a pollution-free haven for the lucky few, Lady Trinh will go to any lengths to protect her people – and not only from the virus. For her, failure is not an option, and loose threads must be quickly cut. Something is awake. And it wants to feed.
