City and the Beast

First Chapter | Latest Chapter (21)

Eventually, this website will host several original projects we’ve been working on for the last decade. For now it is home to our first novel. We very proudly present: City and the Beast!

City and the Beast is a story about a thief trying to find the key to getting his life back on track, about a homeless man who wants to stop stealing lives, and about a wayward biker delivering packages for a shady priest. In the streets and docks of New Coalport the business is booming, shadowy figures are lurking, and you get to experience their double-dealings from at least three different perspectives. Who is the beast and who is the man in this city, and do falling stars really bring luck? Do people need ears to hear, and how can a lawyer cause a basement crack? Read and find out!

Updates Fridays!


We will later provide epub version of the chapters. Look out for updates.

Recommended instrumental music is sometimes linked in the chapters and already looped for your convenience. Feel free to listen while reading if that’s your kind of thing, or ignore the links if it’s not.

If you are enjoying the story, please leave us a comment here or on tumblr, it would mean so much!

And if you bless us with fanart, rest assured we will love it, print it out, put it on our wall and proudly display it on the website as well (with a link back to your social media platform of choice).

Oh, one more thing – if you spot a typo or a grammatical conundrum we missed due to not being native speakers, please point it out, and we shall fix it! And while we have carefully researched everything we wrote about, if you lived in the USA in the 80s and see a clear contradiction somewhere, please point it out to us as well – thanks so much!

Otherwise, enjoy reading, tell us what you think – and if you like the story, please share the link to our website with your friends and followers!
