Description

The Machinery knows all.

For ten millennia, the leaders of the Overland have been Selected by the Machinery, an omnipotent machine gifted to the world in darker days.

The Overland has thrived, crushing all enemies. But the Machinery came with a prophecy: it will break in its ten-thousandth year, Selecting just one leader who will bring Ruin to the world. That time has arrived.

Katrina Paprissi is an Apprentice Watcher, charged with seeking out any who doubt the power of the Machinery. But as the Machinery nears breaking point, her own doubts begin to surface. She must travel to its home in the depths of the mysterious Underland, to see if Ruin really is coming for them all…

Reviews

‘The story is part apocalypse, part mystery and entirely captivating. If you’re looking for a new voice in fantasy whose writing is going to get you thinking, then look no further’
The Eloquent Page

‘If you enjoy epic fantasy with a little sci-fi thrown in, I highly suggest you grab a copy and prepare for a wild ride’
Mom With a Reading Problem

‘Every so often you come across a book that really hits the spot. For me, THE MACHINERY was just such a book … The degree of abstractness and the disjunct one only normally experiences in dream creates an underlying mood that put me in mind of Mervyn Peake’
Graeme K. Talboys, author of the Shadow in the Storm series
