The Gold Stone Girl is set a million years in the future. The planet Earth has reformed itself into the one-continent world of Blinkin. God and his devil have given way to a new polarity -- to the Night Mare and the Dream Weaver. But the Night Mare has co-opted her opposite, and she now rules the night and the day.
Into this nightmare world, where human females are kept as cattle, and licensed as domestic pets -- inside the stone-system designed to prevent the enemy’s return -- Mina, a rogue DreamWeaver, is born in the Off-grid of Winkin City. She’s found inside the mossy womb of a willow tree, alongside lygaeids hibernating as larvae. Hers is a hero’s journey, as she lives the life of a human-breeder, who discovers that in order to survive, she must change everything.Link: Goodreads, Amazon, Book's website
