TWISTED AND HILARIOUS
Royden Poole is having a very bad day.
Strong-armed into investigating a break-in, a bizarre theft, two missing persons, and a shooting with no body, and all he wants to do is go back to pretending he's dead. And that's just a warm up.
There's an infinity of time and space just after midnight where the rules of reality you are accustomed to don't necessarily apply. Most people don't know anything about it. And of those that do, most don't want anything to do with it. But a heart's desire is there for the finding for those brave enough (or stupid enough) to look.
Explore behind the scenes of reality in the 25th Hour, a strange world of gods and monsters. A place of wonder and horror. A place of magic where secret kings and queens war for control, routinely wielding the powers of channeled peoples, places, and ideas, whether historical, literary, mythological, or imaginary.
Follow along with Royden on a foul-mouthed, darkly comic, hardboiled romp through the twisted underbelly of the world you thought you knew.
“Fast, profane, full of joy, deeply intelligent, and just a lot of damn fun to read.”—Colin McComb, author of OATHBREAKER
“Reads like the fevered brainchild of Warren Ellis and Kenneth Hite. Smart, dark fun.”—Matt Forbeck, author of AMORTALS and VEGAS KNIGHTS
