Book ONE of the Moonfall trilogy...
Tasman is born into a world populated by two-headed bicephalic “twins” who share one body. Alone, she struggles for acceptance and becomes the unwitting key to the Earth’s salvation, in a poetic and apocalyptic vision of the future where technology exists as a mere remnant of a destroyed world, conjoined twins are the norm and the orbit of the moon is decaying.
