|Plot Summary of Beneath the Shattered Moons|
|"In a world created by Neo-humans (Parfects) to test experimental societies, Ingram Marley, an investigator for the government of Ongladred, seeks answers to disturbing questions about the world. He encounters a man who seems to have escaped 'programming' and learns compassion for an emotionless society. Add in a 'Theater of the Dead', an invading barbarian horde, and a legendary biological-apocalypse being and you have a nicely rounded sci-fi novel with a bit of a morbid atmosphere."
Shane Tiernan, Resident Scholar
