'Anyone looking for a science fiction tale of grim darkness should definitely pick this one up'-Starburst

In this Gormenghastian world the Factory is the law - but Wild Alan is about to discover that law does not mean justice.

The gargantuan Factory of Gleam is an ancient, hulking edifice of stone, metal and glass ruled over by chaste alchemists and astronomer priests.

As millennia have passed, the population has decreased, and now only the central district is fully inhabited and operational; the outskirts have been left for the wilderness to reclaim. This decaying, lawless zone is the Discard; the home of Wild Alan.

Clever, arrogant, and perpetually angry, Wild Alan is both loved and loathed by the Discard's misfits. He's convinced that the Gleam authorities were behind the disaster that killed his parents and his ambition is to prove it. But he's about to uncover more than he bargained for.

Editorial Reviews

It's well written and thought provoking. It's not what you expect (regardless of what you expect) . . . Gleam challenges the genre. It pushes boundaries, and introduces readers to profound and amazing characters. It's dark, but love and hope are subtle tones that balance that darkness.-Bookworm Blues
