This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
An intoxicating blend of noir crime, science fiction and fantasy, The Last City is Blade Runner meets Perdido Street Station.
Scorpia – the last city of Aquais – where the Ar Antarians rule, the machine-breeds serve and in between a multitude of races and species eke out an existence somewhere between the ever-blazing city lights and the endless darkness of the underside.
As a spate of murders and abductions grip the city, new recruit Silho Brabel is sent to the Oscuri Trackers, an elite military squad commanded by the notorious Copernicus Kane. But Silho has a terrible secret and must fight to hide her strange abilities and monstrous heritage.
As the team delve deeper into Scorpia's underworld, they discover a nightmare truth.
Hunted by demons, the Trackers must band together with a condemned fugitive, a rogue wraith and a gangster king and stake their lives against an all-powerful enemy to try to save one another and their world.
The Last City is the first book in The Demon War Chronicles. The second book, The Forgotten City is available for pre-order now.
The Last City: The Demon War Chronicles
This is a fabulous book, just loved it! A roller coaster ride from start to finish. I loved the characters like Jude and the Commander and Eli was magic! Great imagination and excellent writing skills. I can't wait to read the Forgotten City and I do so hope that all the members of the Trackers will be in Book 2. I highly recommend this book.
Eli, Eli, Eli
There is plenty to like in this nonstop, fast paced story set in an alternative world created so credibly by author, Nina D'Aleo. A fresh approach combining fantasy, sci-fi and gangsters... Brooding leaders, mercurial fae and an imp with a type of Tourette's where he frequently says the complete opposite of his intent, I'm guessing Eli could never deliberately tell a lie.
Looking forward to more, thank you Nina.
Great story telling and character building. Got a bit confused with the different races and I had to figure out a lot of things on my own, but that was half the fun!
