A storm is heading towards the city of Apollonia, and it is not just the bad weather. It is on horseback and in the shape of the Flock invaders. Being led by a man of mystery, the invaders are not necessarily there to break down the fabled walls, but can the Apollonians be convinced of the newcomer’s intentions?

The usual problems persist within Apollonia; lack of jobs, high taxes, trade deals along with an unpredictable monarch who has taken a fancy to making his mark in history. Sorvus, the last mage of Apollonia, is eager to save the city from the invaders but if he could not save the king’s wife, can he be relied upon to help save the city? A killer is on the loose but could he be the answer to stopping the onslaught by the Flock or even trusted?

Amongst all the chaos is a young boy called Tius, who just is after adventure with his friends but ends up getting more than he bargained for.

Roz Munn is an avid reader of Terry Pratchett novels and took inspiration from these along with his travels to write his first novel, Apollonia.

Although having worked the majority of his career in financial services, he would much rather describe himself as something more exciting, such as a writer.

He is based in London and lives with his family and a very curious, fluffy cat who kept him company many nights during the writing of this novel. He would dedicate the book to his cat, but is not sure whether it is allowed or ever done before.

    Roz Munn’s first book clearly shows traces of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld influence with unusual character names and attributes. The novel deals with serious issues in a humorous way but also takes a serious approach, the contrast making the story worth following. The personalities of the characters really add to the story with the main protagonists centered around 3 teenagers, the dynamic between them helping drive the story. The sub-plots are tantalizing as well and really add to the story, primarily of the dangers the city of Apollonia is facing.
