Join JON WALLACE signing BARRICADE, at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Wednesday 18th June from 6 – 7pm!

…a relentless, edge-of-your-seat, roller coaster ride!

Kenstibec is a member of the 'Ficial' race, a breed of merciless super-humans. Their war on humanity has left Britain a wasteland, where Ficials hide in barricaded cities, besieged by tribes of human survivors. Originally optimised for construction, Kenstibec earns his keep as a taxi driver, running any Ficial who will pay from one surrounded city to another.

The trips are always brutal, but this will be his toughest yet: His Ficial fare is touchy about her luggage. His human guide is plotting to kill him. And that's just the start of his troubles… BARRICADE is a fast-paced, hugely intelligent and disturbing first novel. It’s first of a trilogy, starring the brutal, laconic yet engaging hero, Kenstibec. It will appeal to anyone who enjoys page-turning stories that grip you tight and don’t let go.
