In Wranglestone by Darren Charlton, a young man with a mysterious past is drawn to a hidden island where he must confront his destiny. 

Amidst the desolate landscapes of coastal England, a young man named Peter finds himself drawn to the enigmatic Isle of Wranglestone. The island's ancient magic and secrets resonate with Peter, awakening a latent power within him. But the island also harbors dangers, and Peter must unravel its mysteries to protect himself and those he loves.


Winter was the only season every Lake-Lander feared...

In a post-apocalyptic America, a community survives in a national park, surrounded by water that keeps the Dead at bay. But when winter comes, there's nothing to stop them from crossing the ice.

Then homebody Peter puts the camp in danger by naively allowing a stranger to come ashore and he's forced to leave the community of Wranglestone. Now he must help rancher Cooper, the boy he's always watched from afar, herd the Dead from their shores before the lake freezes over.

But as love blossoms, a dark discovery reveals the sanctuary's secret past. One that forces the pair to question everything they've ever known.

An action-packed and thought-provoking debut, for fans of Patrick Ness, Marcus Sedgwick, DREAD NATION and The Walking Dead.
