Three novels by Clare Rhoden: The Pale, Broad Plain Darkening, The Stars in the Night

In The Pale, orphaned Hector is rescued from the Outside by the humachines of the massive post-apocalyptic city. As Hector grows more and more human, the Pale’s citizens begin to distrust him. What will happen as more creatures from the Outside try to get in? Read a sample here.


In the second instalment, Broad Plain Darkening, the wolf-dog canini pack saves Hector and the abandoned human twins. Together they work with the tribesfolk and settlers to survive in a land where the Pale’s humachines control most of the resources. See the full list of characters here.
