When main character, Aiden, moves from a foster home to be with his estranged sister in Maine, he’s not sure what to expect, and certainly isn’t prepared for what he finds.
An army of shadow people, starting as a rumor but becoming more real by the minute, is threatening the lakeside town.
Aiden must join forces with two mysterious girls who seem to have powers able to defeat these monsters, and soon he becomes enthralled with this dark world.
“Society wasn’t charming to him: nothing was,” Robert explains. “He moves into a tiny, forest-shrouded town in Maine when a menacing, shadowy entity appears before him; a new world is exposed. And Aiden wants more of that world.”
The characters provide a restless sort of energy as undercurrent for the novel, and it’s easy to see how this could pave the way for a unique style yet unseen in the literary world.
Initially, Robert set out to write a thriller, but combining his passion for the paranormal, Robert believes he crafted a narrative akin to a video game, something totally new and unlike anything on the market – a novel readers can feel part of, can reflect on and discover as they follow Aiden’s path of strange circumstance.
This story reflects on our inner desires to chase curiosity, and the wonders that can come with it.
Robert resides in Warminster and “Entropy” is his first novel, published by London-based Austin Macauley Publishers.
