Mr B's review

From the author of ‘Follow Me To Ground’ comes this equally unsettling story of human endurance and corrupted power. Set in an abandoned commune, twins Anna and Adam prepare for a prophesied world-ending event, until a previous inhabitant returns and forces them to question everything.

Description

Twins Anna and Adam live in an abandoned commune in a volatile landscape where they prepare for the world-ending event they believe is imminent. Adam keeps watch by day, Anna by night. They meet at dawn and dusk.

Their only companion is Koan, the commune’s former leader, who still exerts a malignant control over their daily rituals. But when one of the previous inhabitants returns, everything Anna and Adam thought they knew to be true is thrown into question.

Dazzling, unsettling and incredibly moving, Redder Days is a stunning exploration of the consequences of corrupted power, the emotional impact of abandonment, and the endurance of humanity in the most desperate of situations.
