About

The Fades

A smart, exciting, supernatural thriller. The spirits of the dead are walking the Earth and they are becoming increasingly powerful. Paul is one of the few who can see them. Can he stop them?

Paul and his best friend Mac, both 17, are the unpopular kids at their college. They’re almost invisible to the rest of their year, avoided and unnoticed by the cool gang – which includes Paul’s twin sister Anna.

But Paul is also a troubled young man haunted by apocalyptic dreams that neither his therapist nor Mac can provide answers for. Dark nightmares of an abandoned world, where the sky rains ash, fill Paul’s mind and leave him terrified.

Worse still, Paul has started to see things – horrible creatures that aren’t human. Then, late one night, his dreams start to become real.

But then Paul meets Neil. And his nightmares – though still terrifying – start to make more sense. Neil explains that the things he can see are Fades. Paul is special – he’s one of a small group of people who can see them.

Fades are the ghosts or spirits of human beings. Everyone who dies becomes a Fade. They cannot be seen, heard, smelt or touched by the living, and they are completely unable to interact with our world.

They should ascend, but for some reason, that isn’t happening. They’re trapped in a world they can’t experience. And now an embittered and vengeful Fade has found a way to break the barrier between the dead and the living.

Soon the fate of humanity rests in the hands of the two friends who already have enough trouble getting through a day in one piece, let alone saving the world.
