When sixteen-year-old Jack’s home town is burned down, his mortally-wounded grandfather tells him of a device called “The Mouth” that opens doors into other worlds.
The boy escapes from the “Curfew” – a brutal realm of war machines, vengeful soldiers and burned-out Resistance caves — in a stolen Centurion tank.
He finds the device, and it takes him to a peaceful version of England where there is hope and kindness from strangers. But the enemy is not far behind – Jack faces betrayal by a friend and a determined Metropolitan Police who are pursuing him for murder.
He must do the impossible – find the world that gave his enemies their extraordinary power and travel to an England known simply as “The Maximum.” The Mouth is a dark science-fantasy adventure story about hope, resolve and finding the courage to carry on fighting even when all seems lost.
A Goodreads reviewer said, “The Mouth is a bleak, bloody and violent story that rockets along at breakneck speed. For anyone 16+ who enjoys reading dark Sci Fi / Fantasy, I thoroughly recommend The Mouth. It is an exciting, satisfying read, with a great main character in Jack and an upbeat ending!”
