The Scarab Children of Montague

A Broken Cities Novella

Falstaff Books (2021)

Montague. A city of doors, dreams and danger, ruled by a mysterious Queen who keeps a collection of Scarab Children locked in the city’s highest tower. A hub of the Labyrinth, where lands intersect and people can lose themselves with the twist of a handle, the creak of a door hinge.

Twins Dee and Zet are the latest in a long line who are sent to live in Montague’s lighthouse. The city needs them and their dreams to keep it safe and its thousands of doors to other lands open. But the Queen needs them for a very different reason; a reason that sets brother against brother, imperilling Montague and all who call it home.

Lisette of the Raven, Ash of the Rook

A Broken Cities Novella

Falstaff Books (2019)

Lisette comes from a long line of executioners and is learning the trade from her mother. When Lisette’s secret is discovered, her life takes an unexpected turn.

Living on the edge of the Desert of Loss, catching the echoes of the condemned before they pass through into the labyrinth, is not for the faint-hearted. Then the echoes begin to speak back, carrying a message from the dead, and setting Lisette in search of answers. A search that leads her to the very last place she should be.
