Author: Serena Sallow
Trapped on a staircase with no end or beginning, a young boy and girl must fight fear, isolation, hallucinations, and the most potent of all killers: themselves.
On the staircase, nothing is certain. Which way is up; which way is down; what is real, or what isn’t. Everything is left open to interpretation. It’s hard to figure out where you’re going when you don’t even know from where you’re coming — but this doesn’t stop our protagonists from doing their best to figure just this out.
Edge centers around the friendship of an eighteen-year-old girl and an eight-year-old boy as they fight for their lives and their minds in a nightmarish land. They will have to battle their way through hallucinations, loss of memory, warped perceptions, and an always-consistent sense that nothing in their universe is real. They have no weapons, defenses, or safeguards; it is merely themselves against the staircase. In this unique tale unlike anything you’ve ever read, you will not only learn about the world that they are trapped in, but also a friendship and love that can withstand even the most unimaginable horrors.
