Finalist in the 2019-20 Australian Shadows Awards. Given by the Australian Horror Writers Association (AHWA) for “the finest in horror and dark fiction published by an Australasian within the calendar year.”

"… hauntingly lyrical and delightfully strange .... highly original in tone, concept, and execution .... visceral and evocative imagery." - Booklife Prize (Publisher's Weekly)


A shipwreck reunion turns to horror and madness in 19th century New Zealand. 

He’s been sent to investigate the fate of a mysterious expedition ship off the wild coast of Tempest Bay. But the locals are strange, and the explorers driven insane. There’s one hope he still holds dear, a long-hoped-for reunion with the final survivor, yet that connection proves the most twisted and troubling of all.

The acclaimed Project Tempest series imagines a world on the cusp of emotional climate change: a profound shift in how our inner lives connect to the places around us. The warring forces of this world are kindness and cruelty, creativity and death, history and memory and possibility and the deep primordial terror that echoes from the ocean to the stars.
