Publisher Comments:

A darkly thrilling new novel from master storyteller Chris Wooding, about a civilization plagued by chaos and reality-rearranging storms.

Orokos is a city of chaos, lashed by probability storms that re-order the world wherever they strike. It covers every inch of the rocky island that it dominates. It has stood for so long that history has forgotten it, and its citizens no longer question what exists beyond its walls. Then three of its denizens discover a map that holds the key to the secret at the heart of Orokos. But there are others, such as the Chief of the Protectorate Secret Police, who would do anything to get their hands on that power...anything at all...

About the Author

Chris Wooding began writing at the age of 16, and his first novel Crashing was published when he was 19. Since that time, he's written dozens of novels in several genres, notably the award-winning The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray; Poison; Storm Thief; the Malice series; and the graphic novel, Pandemonium.

Imagine living in a place where a storm could do more than blow down a tree or flood a neighborhood. In Orokos, probability storms are unpredictable in both their approach and their effects. A touch of this storm, and buildings change locations; a child's lungs may vanish; a left-handed person become right-handed. But the probability storms aren't the worst thing about Orokos; they are just a small part of a terrifying puzzle, a puzzle that has the outcasts Rail and Moa in its grip. Are they thieves or heroes? Is the powerful government of Orokos good or evil? And is there really a source for the probability storms--a source that can be destroyed?
