AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Here in the west they know a lot about hope. They know how to ration it just as they do with food and water.

'Josephine is at last free of the blood moon. But in a desperate rush to find help for a comatose Luke, she discovers the strange and dangerous world of the resistance, and it is unlike any world Josi has known.

'In the west they believe in fury – they cultivate and encourage it. The unruly people of the resistance know that to survive means to fight. But can they fight the inevitable cure for sadness that rushes steadily closer?

'In the action-packed sequel to Fury, everything Josi believes about herself will be challenged. Haunted by atrocities and betrayals, she must find the strength to trust again, and decide how far she is willing to go to fight the inevitable.

'At times both brutal and sweet, Melancholy is the story of second chances and finding love in a ruined world.'

Melancholy : Episode 2, Charlotte McConaghy , 2015 single work novella science fiction romance

'The creature in that cage is an animal or a monster, or something in between. And when I look at him a reflection all too familiar stares back.

'Josephine wakes early one misty morning to stumble upon a body, brutally murdered. She’s seen too many bodies like this before; she knows this kind of violence. She also knows, with perfect clarity, that the two newest members of the resistance will be the prime suspects.

'How far will she go to protect Luke from the monster awakening inside him? And how long can any of them survive, trapped within the walls with a murderer?'

Melancholy : Episode 3, Charlotte McConaghy , 2015 single work novella science fiction romance

'I am not a good enough person to just exist. Too much violence lies in my past. I must earn my life. Earn the beats of my heart, and be worthy of them.

'Josi’s true identity has been revealed to the resistance, and now they are watching her, circling, waiting for the right moment to use her.

'Bodies are dropping and Luke is barely keeping his head above water.

'The Furies beyond the wall grow in number by the day, screaming to get in.

'And the day of the sadness cure has arrived.

'In the gripping conclusion to Melancholy, danger approaches from all sides. Josephine will need to find unparalleled strength to survive it – and to carry her new family through to whatever future lies on the other side.'
