Eighteen-year-old Allin Arcady only wants one thing: to reach the Roof of the World and see the Sun for the first time in his life. The problem is, he’s lost in the depths of the ruined planet-city called Earth, fleeing the horrors of his past.
When his past catches up to him, Allin is thrust into a science fantasy adventure in which he meets a race of genetically-modified cats, tangles with vengeful werewolves, and parlays with cyborgs. Along the way, Allin is forced to decide: will he spend his whole life running or take a stand against the forces that want to finish off the Earth once and for all?
Reviews for The Only City Left
“There are so many good things about this book for me. To be honest, when I got a few chapters in, it was like I was bitten by a zombie. There was no cure to stop it, the turn, I was now a fan. This book has a little bit of everything I need in a book. A good concept, good character development, strong protagonist and quirky sidekicks.” – Matt Ely, JC’s Book Haven
“What are most post-apocalyptic stories missing nowadays? I can tell you three things: Ghost werewolves, talking monarchist mutant-warrior cats and, most importantly, fun. The Only City Left has all of them, plus more. In an era when every other novel is a grayscale slog through post-apoc depression, this story does a 180 and gives us a colorfully dead world with an irreverent hero and, yes, the most badass talking ninja cat I’ve seen in any book so far.” – Mack Moyer
“It’s a witty, well-written, surprisingly quick read. I devoured the novel in a matter of days despite a hectic schedule.” – Rayssa Pink
