It took just two weeks for the world to end.

Those who survived fled underground to build a new life,
while otherworldly clean up crews prowled the surface, looking for stragglers.

Over generations, mankind adapted.
She kept quiet, kept her animals quiet. She abandoned sound, made talk with her hands.
She changed her weapons, her way of killing. She stayed underground li

Tallwood is one of the most unique books I've ever read. It is also one of the best post apocalyptic stories I've come across in recent years. Combining a strange and incredibly enchanting universe with authentic and exciting characterisation and action, Tallwood is storytelling at its absolute finest. A must read for fans of speculative fiction everywhere!

This is so clearly the work of someone who has been writing for a long time, because they've been having amazing ideas for a long time. Both of these aspects are well polished, yet utterly true to themselves.

This is a post-apocalyptic novel. But the apocalypse itself and its a

Quite dense, but an extremely rewarding read. The early chapters pass fairly sedately and the pace picks up almost imperceptibly until the final couple of chapters pass in a blaze.

It happened. The apocalypse. God took those he wanted and sent in a clean up crew to take care of the rest.

But mankind survived. They hid in caves. The hid in rubble. They ran. Like an infestation of vermin, they survived.

Eight generations later, the world is a scary place. Johns, the common term for the angels, roam the earth in search of humans to exterminate. Over time, they've forgotten their initial reasons for being there and are just seeking the kill. They have become rabid h

Amanda lives at the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges, a glorious part of the world surrounded by valleys, forests, walking paths and, most importantly, wineries.

The seclusion and tranquility make it a perfect place to hole up and write, especially in the winter months when the frost sets in.

The writing magic happens in a warm little nook at the bottom of the house, closed off b
