CONDEMNED TO THE DARK, WILL THE LIGHT’S LAST HOPE DESCEND INTO HELL?
Clare Aireneth needs to write her entire thesis in one week. As a student of the prestigious Royal Academy, her work on Magitech automatons needs to not only impress her professors, it must also honor the legacy of her late mother – who practically wrote the book on humanity’s mechanized companions.
Clare’s father is the kingdom’s only Magitech substation rounds officer. It’s through him that powering the city’s tens of thousands of devices and machines operate smoothly from his small weekly adjustments. It’s the industrial automatons below that do the rest of the work for him. It’s illegal to go down there, of course, but Clare goes anyway in the pursuit of science.
She’ll soon regard this as a mistake.
Going underground into the substation system, Clare finds a secret that seeks to remain hidden. It has intelligence. It hunts. It can KILL. And Clare just slapped it across the face.
Welcome to Substation 7, an atmospheric, seeping fantasy thriller where the world is the lie, and that lie wants you dead.
