All Ruined must burn.

The Ruined plague the city of Steamdon despite the efforts of the burners to see them ablaze. The cause of ruination is unknown, yet the affliction spreads.

As John’s Ruined Lord and Lady parents smolder on the cobblestones, he evades burner flamethrowers, escaping into the sewers. In this dank underworld, Anna One-Cut reveals the devastation wrought by the disease and its connection to the inventions of his father’s nemesis.

Together they must discover the truth, before Steamdon becomes a Ruined nation.

RUINATION is available from Amazon.
