Hi everyone,

I hope, in these scary times, that as you are reading this you and your loved ones are doing ok.

One of the amazing upsides I have seen since this pandemic began is the amount of stuff my fellow creatives out there have been doing to help ease people’s time in isolation. In the spirit of that I’ve decided to offer a special digital edition entitled ‘Unseen Shadows’ along with my novel ‘Fallen Heroes’.

At the heart of the Unseen Shadows Universe is a secret war which has waged since the first crusade and still continues to this day.

This edition, which is over 300 pages, contains all of the comic one-shots that have been published to date.

You cannot get this digital version anywhere online and will only available here for free until 11th June.

Knights of Cademus
Operation Solomon
Fight or Flight
Wrath of God

The Unseen Shadows Transmedia Universe  is dedicated to expanding the world and characters created in the bestselling novel Fallen Heroes through transmedia storytelling. 

“These are not just nice little side stories with no impact on the events surrounding them,” Barry Nugent, the founder of Unseen Shadows explains. “The spin-off titles expand and enhance the characters lives and relationships within the novels. It was important to me that these titles can be read, watched and listened to independently of each other and the novels but you will get more insights into the characters by experiencing everything the Unseen Shadows Universe has to offer.”

…rip-roaring, testosterone-fuelled pulp fiction with soldiers and mysteries and all-round weird stuff  – Jonathan Ross

High flying adventure, monsters, espionage, Indiana Jones calibre action and a whole lot of fun… -Aintitcool

“…draws on many popular culture references & influences, and is easily compared to ‘Sin City’, ‘The Da Vinci Code’, ‘Heroes’ or ‘Buffy’ – there really is something for everyone and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone that enjoys reading or watching Sci-Fi/Fantasy.” –Waterstones
