SongTyrantWormArriving 8 June from author Hailey Piper and Off Limits Press, Song of the Tyrant Worm

New York City, 1990: The Gray Maiden has served the almighty Worm and his faithful for her entire life. Recently that has meant abducting women off the street to find the Worm’s destined Bride, but any brutality is worth his promise of a better world to come.
Until two strangers reveal a horrifying truth—there is no future anymore. No past. Unfathomable forces have broken all sense of the world, stranding Gray in a repeating nightmare, cut off from godly promises. Her only hope is to follow these strangers out of the catastrophe, first to safety, and then to answers.
But a sinister presence lurks beyond the universe’s skin, a cosmic hunger that has haunted Gray since before she knew its name. Time breaks and starlight dies beneath uncompromising gods in the reality-shattering conclusion to The Worm and His Kings saga.
