This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
The world of Apparatum is divided. To the west lies the high-tech city of Apparati, governed by a corrupt mayor and his brutal military general. To the east, spread around the mountains and forests, the seven enclaves of Apparata are ruled by an overbearing sovereign and his evil chancellor. Between them lies the Ruins, or the Broken Lands – all that's left of a sprawling civilization before it fractured.
Hundreds of years have passed, and neither world knows the other exists.
Laws are harsh. Two young fugitives – Kyle from the city and Logan from the enclaves – escape their homes and set out into the wastelands to forge a new life. But their destinies are intertwined, for the separate worlds of Apparati and Apparata are two faces of the same coin... and it turns out that everyone has a twin.
This novel is the first of a 2-part story, although the book is complete in itself. The second book, UNEARTHED, continues the story deep underground. For sci-fi and fantasy fans aged 10 and up.
