About the Book

Dear Young Watcher,

You are about to meet an extraordinary human. His name is Maximillian Fly and he looks mostly like a giant cockroach: he stands six feet two and has beautiful indigo wings, long antennae, and more arms than you do. Some are frightened by his appearance, but really, he is a gentle creature and he wants no trouble.

If you insist on following his journey, you will find yourself in the strange and often frightening city of Hope, which is trapped beneath a huge orb to protect it from the Contagion outside. You will meet his friends and his enemies, and you will see how Maximillian's life takes a new direction when he opens his door to two Wingless children who need a place to hide.

He will know you are watching him. Maximillian is proud and will try to prove his goodness to you. In this world, humans may look very different, some with wings and carapaces and some without, but inside they are alike. Who can be judged on their appearance when individual actions define good and evil

Thank you, young Wingless watcher, for without you, this story will not happen. Please enjoy this dark and twisty tale.
