In the distant future, at the end of civilisation, the remnants of society hang on, having retreated behind walls, while prisoners roam the wide-open space beyond. But is anybody free?
Finbarl, a guard defending the walls of Athenia, fights to keep the flame of civilisation burning. It is the only world he knows and one he’s willing to die for.
But when he intervenes to protect a boy and his mother from a fellow guard, little does he realise his world is about to unravel, setting him upon a dangerous journey of betrayal, heartbreak and discovery.
Nathaniel M Wrey's high-paced debut novel, Liberty Bound, explores how fear shapes and imprisons society and individuals. Liberty and the pursuit of liberty are portrayed throughout the landscape, the characters and narrative, exposing the complexities and contradictions of a topic as pertinent in today’s world as it has ever been.
