The Island

From the multiple best-selling author team that brought you Pattern Black and Burnout comes a brand new transcendent mindfuck of a fantasy novel. Two powerful and fierce immortal gods are trapped on an island, endlessly pursuing a Sisyphean task that must be completed each day and is renewed each night.  Enemies forced to work together, they sabotage each other, play tricks on each other, and murder each other, only to be resurrected the following day. Yet, despite the daily friction and violence, ultimately, they live in an uneasy balance.  Until the day the stranger arrives. Then the balance tips, the pit collapses, and all hell breaks loose. The Island is a brand new stand-alone fantasy novel by those masters of story, Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant. Get your copy today.
