Release Day: Morningside Fall by Jay Posey (Legends of the Duskwalker, Book Two)

Posted on 2014-04-29 at 14:21 by montsamu

Last summer, Durham narrative designer, author, and screenwriter Jay Posey’s debut novel Three was published by Angry Robot Books, introducing the titular Three: a lone gunman in a post-apocalyptic wasteland of isolated towns walled against the Weir, a horrifying nocturnal menace of hunting creatures. Three is “The Duskwalker”, a man who can travel at night unseen by the Weir and who (against his better judgement) finds himself the guardian of a woman and her gifted young son, Wren, on the run from a more mundane — yet just as deadly — foe: her estranged, violent lover and his gang of brain-hackers. With no other safe harbor in sight, Three endeavors to guide the pair to Morningside in search of Wren’s father. Years later we pick up with the events in Morningside Fall, published today in original paperback and e-book. “The lone gunman Three is gone. Wren is the new governor of the devastated settlement of Morningside, but there is turmoil in the city. When his life is put in danger, Wren is forced to flee Morningside until he and his retinue can determine who can be trusted. They arrive at a border outpost to find it has been infested with Weir in greater numbers than anyone has ever seen. These lost, dangerous creatures are harbouring a terrible secret – one that will have consequences not just for Wren and his comrades, but for the future of what remains of the world. New threats need new heroes…”


Congratulations, Jay, on the release of book 2! (And a note: I really enjoyed the audio edition of Three, read by Luke Daniels for Angry Robot on Brilliance Audio. Via Twitter, it looks like an audiobook edition for Morningside Fall may yet be in the works. Stay tuned!)
