Mo hovers tantalisingly between fantasy and reality, between horror and wonder. It describes how a young boy tries to find his way as family, friends, and strangers tug at his conscience with their conflicting demands. All the while a mysterious voice attempts to guide him.

S Pearce's enigmatic tale skilfully examines notions of identity in an unsettled world. Delving at times into the supernatural and at others into violent extremism, this intriguing and intelligent story can be seen as a modern day morality tale which will keep readers guessing throughout.

This tale forms the first of a series of independent tales which take a critical look at our society. Extremism, nationalism and environmental concerns all come under the spotlight in this remarkable series. The tales will take you to the precipice and leave you dangling there. Get ready to question your thoughts, your actions, and wonder what those about you are planning.
