Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore – Christmas Book Fair – New book on the shelves – Blackthorn by Terry Tyler

Delighted to showcase the latest release from Terry Tyler. As a fan of all the Project Renova series, I am looking forward to reading Blackthorn set 115 years after the virus wiped out most of humanity.

About the book

The UK, year 2139.

One hundred and fifteen years ago, a mysterious virus wiped out ninety-five per cent of humanity.

Blackthorn, the largest settlement in England, rose from the ashes of the devastated old world. It is a troubled city, where the workers live in crude shacks, and make do with the worst of everything.

It is a city of violent divisions, crime, and an over-populated jail block, until a charismatic traveller has a miraculous vision, and promises to bring hope back to the people’s lives.

Blackthorn falls under Ryder Swift’s spell, and the most devoted of all is the governor’s loyal servant, Lieutenant August Hemsley.

Twenty-one-year-old Evie has lived her whole life in the shacks. She and disillusioned guard Byron Lewis are two of a minority who have doubts about Ryder’s message. Can they stand against the beliefs of an entire city?

One of the recent reviews for the Project Renova series

I can’t remember when I’ve ever given a whole series of books five stars before, but Terry Tyler’s “Project Renova” books certainly deserve it.

I love “end of the world” fiction ( apart from zombies and EMP disasters, which I feel have been done to death ). If you’re a fellow “fall of civilisation” lover, you’ll love this, but even if you’re not, this is a book about people. Not super-confident, highly skilled well prepared survivalists, but ordinary, real, fallible people and how they face a crisis which destroys everything they know and everything they believed in.

The book is written from the point of view of a number of different survivors of a devastating plague and we get to know them very well, there are no cardboard cutout or stock characters here. The reader feels their fear, their desperation, their determination, their joy and their sorrow. I actually found myself cursing the author when something nasty happened to one of my favourites.

Really well written fiction is not easy to find, but these books hit the spot.
Highly recommended.
