(published by Reliquary Press)
is ONLY 99 CENTS in ALL E-Book Stores!!
"The imagery was fantastic, putting me right into a world I hope I never have to live in. The characters pull you in, to a point where you can identify with (almost) all of them, even if you don't want to. It's a book I will most definitely read again." (Amazon.com)
"Jessica McHugh has once again used her wordcrafting skills, and ability to seamlessly blend genres, to create a terrifying world expressed in a truly gripping tale."
"I love "end of the world as we know it" stories - and this was the most original I've come across so far!" (Amazon.com)
"I was most fascinated with the side story of religion and God and the Capesman. It's a really intriguing take on what the world may become if God were to cease to exist and her spin on HOW that happens is beyond my wildest imagination. Each page is hugely entertaining and once more I felt drawn to follow the story to the end because of how vested I became in the characters and their lives."
FROM THE HERALD'S WEARIED EYE
In Cartesia, no one is free except for those who don't understand the meaning of the word. The Council, populated and run by deviants and murderous politicians, has reduced nearly all cities to either impoverished wastelands or places operated solely for their hedonism. But the Shakespeare-loving vigilante named Shal has had enough of the Council's tyranny and she's going to put an end to them once and for all.
Her struggle to protect her stepsister, escape Malay Prison, avenge her father's death, and do it all without being sent to the Herald of the dead called the Capesman, takes her on a maddening journey of war and emotion she'd never seen coming; especially not with only one eye.
From the Herald's Wearied Eye follows Shal, a soldier named Raoul, and the Capesman through the world of Cartesia where the good live underground, God is long dead, and even one's own mind cannot be trusted.
