They are kept in chambers, their energy used to feed the City’s voracious appetite for fuel now that traditional sources are long gone. These grisly fuel cells are kept watch over by Feast, a devil-human hybrid whose recent run-ins with the City leave him questioning its authority.
When he is needed to bring in one of the most dangerous creatures for containment, Feast is faced with a decision that may make him the next power source.
“In a world created by Royce, the dead are the renewable energy source. The detached, matter-of-fact way in which Feast, a city employee, tells this story only serves to make the tale that much more unsettling … and heartbreaking.
It’s the exploration of fate and destiny that drives this atmospheric, unforgettable, and haunting story.”
Crystal Connor, author of the Spectrum Trilogy
“After the lights go out and the devils walk, the earth becomes a darker place. As envisioned in Eden Royce’s dark tale of a totalitarian government, power is sourced from the dead.
Containment is full of rich complex characters you cannot help but want more from.”
Mark Taylor, The Devil’s Hand/Human Condition
