The Wintermen II: Into the Deep Dark
By: Brit Griffin
Release Date: April 30 2018
Price: $22.95

Synopsis

The nightmare of an endless winter is the least of the problems for Johnny Slaught and his rag tag group of climate chaos refugees. They’ve been surviving in a frontier town abandoned by a government that has lost control – but their world is about to be rocked by the greatest menace of all – human greed. Into the Deep Dark is the second in Brit Griffin’s eco-catastrophic adventure series the Wintermen. The north is full of ancient legends of violence, fear and madness that descended on isolated communities in the darkness of winter. For Johnny Slaught and the Wintermen, the legend is knocking at their door, and he has slicked back hair, a sheep-skin coat and a pump action.
