Talk about edgy!
Fault Zone: Over the Edge is a collection of fantastical, intense and spirited writing that
arises straight out of the chthonic beating heart of storytelling. From the wildly civilized
animals of the imagination to the barely civilized humans who roam the cities and suburbs of
America, these stories and poems take the reader on a literary journey into some very dark
places that nonetheless shine with the light of truth.

In a world where justice is achieved through careful customs of vengeance, Gundack
pursues love and the preservation of his honor. But can he break the cycle of vengeance? Can he
reach into his personal darkness and find the light of reason?
Desert kren are a nomadic people who believe their customs and mythology show them
how to be honorable and thrive. Gundack, a trader and leader of the tribe, seeks revenge for the
murder of his wife Talla in the prescribed manner of his people. According to kren custom, he
must fulfill a vow of decreed vengeance against Tarr, the ruthless mountain kren responsible for
Talla’s murder, and complete a pilgrimage to gain the right to marry the fair Eutoebi.
Gundack forms an unlikely alliance with the human Rheemar, who searches for a
beloved sister stolen by Tarr. Rheemar’s mysterious past holds many secrets, including knowledge
that could lead to the end of Tarr’s attacks on travelers and villagers and allow Gundack to
return to his tribe in time for the Day of Marriages. But Rheemar is blinded by loyalties that
he won’t reveal and ambitions that reflect a naive understanding of heroism.
As time grows short and some vows are satisfied, circumstances thrust Gundack into
escalating tribal tensions. Only then does he realize that he must confront the oldest of kren
beliefs: If vengeance swallows the land, Tharda shall bring a white light to give strength to
the least of us, and unbelievers will make heroes arise. But can the least worthy prove
themselves to be heroes, and the most worthy at least heroic?
Laurel Anne Hill has written a modern parable about timeless ideals: The pursuit of
honor and justice, and the right to love and family. In an era when definitions of terrorism and
heroism can seem fickle and where honor may be capricious, this debut author gives readers a
story of great insight and inspiration.
