Jadde – The Fragile Sanctuary is a full on smash and crash through post-apocalyptic Sci-fi. If you want to see how a genetic mutation can go horribly wrong then read this book.
Millennia have passed since the twenty-first century demon wars when mankind so nearly succumbed to genetically altered mutants – The Quarter-men. Now only isolated pockets of struggling humanity survive.
One insular tribe The Seconchane, are developing psychic powers. Sometimes the gift fails and the unfortunates are banished from the Seconchane’s mountain valleys. Into this harsh reality comes Malkrin Owlear one of the Seconchane’s most gifted. But his incredible talent falters once too often . . .
He discovers the deadlands are not as barren as the priesthood say. The quarter-men, from mans technological past have returned, intent on completing their destruction of mankind.
Malkrin and paranormally talented friends must rediscover from a time forgotten how the ancients led by the goddess Jadde prevailed over the quarter-men swarms.
It was mans last chance – and Malkrin cannot fail.

For many years Clive Ousley painted vast alien landscapes and worlds peopled by strange creatures. He exhibited paintings of these worlds in major exhibitions at The Mall Galleries in London, The Royal Birmingham and a Sotheby’s sponsored exhibition. He became an illustrator and has completed work for The Natural History Museum, Westminster Abbey and Alton Towers.
Now he writes to create these other worlds and loves to read apocalyptic, post-apocalyptic sci-fi and fantasy. He has worked in the printing industry, two horticultural research institutes and has run a car-parts warehouse. He occasionally fiddles with a bit of DIY and walks the Pembrokeshire coastal paths with his wife and dogs.
Clive has written two fantasy/sci-fi novels – Jadde, Books one – The Fragile Sanctuary and book two – The Dark Tide. Another novel, Fountain of Stones, is now available on Kindle. He is currently working on the third novel in the Jadde series – World of Skulls. A fifth space opera / fantasy novel has so far amassed 42,000 words – he’s looking forward to finding the time to finish it.
All these projects have received a great deal of interest from his wife, old and new friends, recently gained followers, possible other world aliens, and his dogs.
