Tonight, the world ends. Billions will die, and I am the cause of it all. To know why, you have to go back to another time, when I was just a boy.
I remember my family, hanging helplessly from the eaves of the porch. And I remember the Preacher, slipping the noose around my neck. He was searching for a woman; the last of her kind. He’d been hunting her for longer than he could remember, and her death would end a war that had raged for thousands of years.
It was supposed to be the final battle but she was clever and unpredictable, and eluded him again. Instead of her, he found me, and I made it a whole new war.
My name is Gabriel Armstrong, and I am immortal.

The last time I had anyone read a story I had written was in High School in the early eighties. Since I was a teenager I have always had a fascination with stories of the fantastical, supernatural and science fiction. My story is inspired by classic – H.G.Wells, George Orwell, Frank Herbert – and contemporary – Stephen King, James Herbert, George R. R. Martin – writers. I love the way they can craft a universe of such vivacity and imagination, and that is probably where any similarity with my story ends. I hope, with my first outing as a writer I can inspire such worlds and creations within my readers. I live in Stourbridge, England with my wife, son and the world’s most lovely dog Shem. My story is the first in a series.
Thank you for buying my book, I hope you enjoy it and appreciate your feedback.
