At the edge of the world, the last stronghold of mankind holds silent vigil, a forgotten sentinel in the shadow of the Transantarctic mountains. It has stood for one hundred twenty-five years while an increasingly dystopian hierarchy has formed bitter divides among its citizens.
The Theran people who came through Antiquity’s Gate are hiding something. The tense relations between the last of Humanity and these mysterious outsiders threaten the fragile bonds that have been holding their community together.

The author of the novel R.F. Hurteau an only be described as a literary artisan. Writing for me is an art form, it is much of an art form as beautiful renaissance sculptures (I have a passion for reading as well as the renaissance period!), paintings and wonderfully executed movies that excite the viewer. The objective of any great writer is that of any kind of artist; it is to communicate a message and to delight the recipient whether that be the listener, the viewer or the reader… in this case the reader. Hurteau has wonderfully delighted me and has made me fall in love with literature all over again. She truly is an increidble talent who manages to grip her readers easily and so I am in awe of her!
