***Perfect for fans of Black Mirror and The Handmaid’s Tale***

In America, the End of Days has finally arrived.

Felix Strange has had a ring-side seat as the USA has transformed into a fundamentalist state. Now he has nothing left to lose.

In the deserts of the American Southwest, a new militant group called the Sons of David have risen. Joshua, their prophet and leader, promises to do what the nation’s brutal religious leaders could not: wash away the corrupt old world, and bring about the Second Coming.

All Strange has to do to make this nightmare end is assassinate this new Messiah.

The problem?

He’s twelve years old.

The Children’s Crusade is the final instalment of Elliott Hall’s cult hit Strange Trilogy, revealing the frighteningly real ways in which America has completed its transformation into a totalitarian state.
