"In the last centuries of the Fifth Cycliad, a great malaise fell on the lands of humankind... 

It is the far future. Our civilisation, and its glorious technological future, is gone. Only rusted ruins and tunnels beneath the ancient cities hint at what once was. In the Chronomancer's Tower, a young apprentice stumbles upon a secret which will change the world; an ancient evil, little more than a fairy tale to frighten children, is real, and threatening to return. But is everything what it seems? Wheels turn within wheels, and political machinations wrought by selfish men and women bring the world to the brink of devastation. Can Iago and his unlikely allies unravel the knot in time, and fathom the mystery of... the Worm Within? 

Some said it was the end of days. Some said it was only the beginning. These pages tell the story of that time yet to come. These are the Chronicles of Future Earth."

We hope you enjoy this exciting new novel, which joins other Modiphius paperbacks like Mindjammer the Novel,  Dark Tales from the Secret WarTales of the White Witchman, and Before the Flood in Modiphius' ever-growing fiction collection which now ranges from transhuman sci-fi and cosmic fantasy, to classic World War 2 Cthulhu adventure, to post-apocalyptic near future thrillers.
