Large print edition in excellent, fine condition. 552pp. '50 years from now, our world is unrecognisable. Pollution and warfare have poisoned the skies, the waterand the soil. Pockets of society still exist, living in highly fortified strongholds, while those outside the walls roam the landscape - either predator or prey. But even these isolated compounds are not safe; armies of demons and once-men assault their defences, and inevitabley, one by one, they succumb. Civilisation has fallen and anarchy is the only law. Logan Tom and Angel Perez are the last two Knnights to stand against the forces of chaos. These two extraordinary people have the ability to resist the dark tide, and to them will fall twin tasks: to find and protect a very old and a very new magic. They are humanity's last hope...'. HEAVY book - a postage surcharge will apply to orders with a delivery address outside the UK, as this book costs more to send than our standard postage rate will cover.
