Nathaniel M. Wrey
Nathaniel M. Wrey studied history at Reading University in the UK before becoming a Civil Servant. He has worked in central government for over twenty years, largely in health and nursing. His literary influences include the social commentary of George Orwell, the adventures of John Buchan and the foresight and imagination of Ray Bradbury. Combined with a continued love of history, Wrey delves into the past to speculate on the future. He has also published a short collection of short stories, The Dividends of Love and Other Stories. Liberty Bound is his debut novel.
At the end of civilisation, the remnants of society are hanging on, having retreated behind walls, while prisoners roam in the wide-open space beyond. But is anybody free?
Finbarl is a guard defending the walls of Athenia, fighting to keep the flame of civilisation burning. It is the only world he knows and one he’s willing to die for.
But when he intervenes to protect a boy and his mother from a fellow guard, little does he realise his world is about to unravel, setting him upon a dangerous journey of betrayal, heartbreak and discovery.
