More About This Title Real Monsters


Starkly realistic and uncompromising, a debut novel covering themes of war and conflict, sure to appeal to fans of dark literary fiction

Reeling from the terrorist attack that killed her father, Lorna lurches through an inebriated adolescence until she finds redemption in a young soldier called Danny. However, her dream of a stable life is shattered when Danny is called to serve overseas. Danny is lost in the desert. Most of his unit is dead—victims, it would seem, of a brutal ambush. With their equipment destroyed and food running out, the small band of men stumble through the sand and shadows, desperate to find salvation. As their hope fades, they begin to turn on each other, until finally it becomes clear that only the truly monstrous will survive.
