The Edge of Ruin
Written by Melinda Snodgrass
A novel of the eternal battle between science and superstition
I’m Richard Oort. I’m a cop.
Two months ago I had learned there were unseen worlds on the borders of our reality. Dimensions filled with horrific, nightmare creatures. Things that viewed humans as prey. Things that drove us to acts of unspeakable violence.
I had to fight them. To defend the people I loved, and to find out who I was. And am.
I’m still a cop. But now I’m also CEO of Lumina Enterprises, a mysterious, globe-girdling operation even I don’t know the full extent of. Replacing the previous guy, who appears to have also been Prometheus, really and truly. Now Prometheus is bound, and the job of taking the fight to the next level is mine.
Because the horrors aren’t over. And they’ll use any human weakness they can get hold of. This is a fight for the world. For keeps.
