New from Carlyle Labuschagne: DEAD OF NIGHT (AFTERSHOCK #1)


Dead of Night
by Carlyle Labuschagne
Young Adult Dystopian Romance



In a dark and desolated After Earth, love still does exist,
but the cost of bearing such a flaw is death.

World War III has left Earth in utter turmoil. People’s beliefs are said to be
the cause of the worldwide destruction. After The Clearing new laws are set about -
to show certitude in anything besides the law is weak and chargeable as mutiny.
To be illogical and have faith in religion is illegal, to be limitless is dangerous.
And illness is seen as a defect – all flaws that are inexcusable.

But to love is the greatest betrayal of all mankind. It is a fault the world has
long forgotten and punishable by death, a fatal risk Aecker and Opel are
fully prepared to take - because in love there is freedom.
But how far can they push back before it claims
their lives and of those they care about?
