The fantasy thriller THE AMBER CHILD by Mark Skinner
In the world of the Joneses, money and image is everything. They’ve forgotten themselves for the sake of status. They’ve forgotten their son, Chipper Jones, who is left to question the frailties of existence alone in a destitute world raped by commerce and wrecked by religion. That is until he meets Jimmy Stiles who lives with his drunk of a father, a man who owes money left, right and centre. Jimmy, who has already turned to a life of crime.
As the two make friends, their very different worlds violently collide. In the aftermath only one of them will make it out of the mundane ‘blood world’ and into the arcane soul market to emerge as the Amber Child.
