Future Japan. In quarantined forges, masterpieces of technology are birthed from furnaces of living sand. On behalf of her adoptive corporate clan, Isamu Kaede is tasked with the delivery of one such artifact: a mysterious length of matte-black rectangle with no apparent purpose.
But her employer is not the only one interested in the package she carries.
A fantasy novel written by me at the tender age of 19.
The City is a dangerous place - especially when the entire fairy underground is hot on your trail. Luckily, the orphaned Molly Miroux is far from an ordinary little girl, and neither is the wee Monster from Underneath her Bed...
Armed with nothing but a volatile temper and an old book of bedtime stories, Molly and her monstrous guide embark on an ominous odyssey across the smog-filled streets and shadowy alleys of the City in a desperate search for Molly's lost parents and the God of the Monsters, whose arrival has been foretold by the mysterious prophecies of the tattered storybook.
But a storm is brewing in the hidden world of fairytale creatures, and it's not long before Molly and her zealous Monster friend are dragged into the fray.
