Hi, my name is Charlie Pike. Welcome to my website. My first published novel, Jacob’s Ladder, will be out in shops from the 1st April 2019

We have heard your call.

You no longer need to fear.

You will receive five messages, of which this is the first.

The last message will inform you of the time and place of your salvation.

The year is 2203, and Initiate Leon wakes early for his Rising. To come of age in his warrior culture he is expected to prove his ability to kill. Leon lives on a dying earth, scorched by powerful solar flares. But a series of messages from an alien civilisation have promised refuge to those strong enough to survive on their planet. The last message will arrive any day now.

Out in the wild, Leon’s mission quickly unravels, and he is forced to question everything he has been taught. He will need all his resources just to stay alive in this final violent struggle to escape the dying planet.
