Beyond Carousel

Written by Brendan Ritchie

All of us wanted to survive whatever was happening. Maybe even escape it somehow. But more than that – we wanted to know what it was.

Nox, Taylor and Lizzy have just escaped a nightmare. After months of being trapped inside a shopping centre they are finally free. Free to roam the streets of Perth and free to solve the mystery of what happened outside the doors of Carousel.

But the city is not like it once was, and the dangers are far from over. Loots lurk in the empty streets and packs of dogs are never far behind. Saving those they love will mean risking everything – and time is running out.

This is the thrilling sequel to Carousel.
