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...

About the Author:

Gerrard Cowan is the author of The Machinery trilogy, the story of a world whose leaders are chosen by a machine – until the machine breaks.

He lives in Ireland with his wife Sarah and their children. His first known work was a collection of poems on monsters, written for Halloween when he was eight; it is sadly lost to civilisation. When he isn't writing strange fantasy books he works as a freelance journalist. He can be found at gerrardcowan.com, at facebook.com/gerrardcowanauthor and @GerrardCowan on Twitter.

Review:

‘Gerrard Cowan has created a genuinely intriguing work of fiction that grabs you from page one ... [he] successfully explores a plethora of different ideas while still maintaining a weirdly surreal edge. Characters are not often exactly who or what they first appear to be and it keeps a reader constantly on their toes. 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
