Sarah Broadhurst's view...

This book is seriously weird. I loved it. Not the ordinary post-apocalypse, dystopian discontent, not by a long way. It’s twisted, meaty and original, surprising and certainly hard to put down. Even the band of misfits on a quest is grittier, dirtier and deeper than the usual crew. This book has a real edge. Blood, music, drugs, desperation, impossible choices, concealed intentions, and an excellent story to begin the Factory trilogy which I hope will take us even further and deeper into this fascinating world.

If you like Tom Fletcher you might also like to read books by Jeff Noon, Jeff VanderMeer and Alan Campbell.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

Gleam by Tom Fletcher

The gargantuan Factory of Gleam is an ancient, hulking edifice of stone, metal and glass ruled over by chaste alchemists and astronomer priests. As millennia have passed, the population has decreased, and now only the central district is fully inhabited and operational; the outskirts have been left for the wilderness to reclaim. This decaying, lawless zone is the Discard; the home of Wild Alan. Clever, arrogant, and perpetually angry, Wild Alan is both loved and loathed by the Discard's misfits. He's convinced that the Gleam authorities were behind the disaster that killed his parents and his ambition is to prove it. But he's about to uncover more than he bargained for.

- The Times

'Tom Fletcher's fluid handling of his subject is magnificent'
- Speculative Assessments

'Fletcher's writing is fresh and distinctive.'
- Sunday Times
