Greaveburn 2 (working title)

What becomes of Greaveburn after the events of he Broken Folk uprising? Can Greaveburn change? And if it can, does it want to?



Christopher has wandered the Earth for centuries, the last victim of the Death Sickness. His humanity long forgotten, he has no drives, no needs. He is free from the desires that claimed him in life. Until the finds the barn, with a little dead girl called Emi, inside.

Walking through a world together, they’ll meet the Musician, who plays her koto with shredded fingers; the Host, a husk of a man who desires stories more than anything and is willing to kill for them; and a brethren of floating priests who want Emi for themselves.

What will become of Emi, a girl trapped in a corpse’s body, when all she sees are these strange and violent creatures, and her only companion is incapable of showing her what it is to be human?

    • Woohoo! Greaveburn is Gothic Steampunk but my current wip is more mainstream Steampunk. Hopefulky both will have their merits :/

    • All in good time 😉 After Alan Shaw, I’ll be concentrating on Emi a lot more. It’s a very odd tale and I don’t really know where it’s going. I guess we’ll have to see 🙂
