Just released from Double Dragon Publishing, Terry Lloyd Vinson's newest full-length novel, the action/adventure thriller 'Desolation Island'.
A brief preview of life on 'the island':
Framed for a murder he didn’t commit, second-tier superhero Ben Thomason, known in the trades as ‘Desolation Outlaw’, is convicted and sentenced to life in prison at Eagle Island Detention Center, a top secret, billion dollar penitentiary that houses only the elite of super-villains and super- hero’s gone bad.
Following the initial incarceration phase, he greets both old allies and enemies alike amid an inexplicable feeling of dread that looms atop the desolate island location like a toxic black cloud.
Set against a surreal backdrop filled with deadly mutants, vile alien entities and merciless madmen, the purest of all evils is slowly awakening just below the surface of the prison’s stringently controlled environment; an ancient being whose raw power dwarfs those of all assigned inmates combined.
As centuries-old mysteries unravel and shocking truths are unmasked, the imprisoned inhabitants and embittered staff of Eagle Isle are forced to ban together and pool their respective powers in order to survive the greatest threat of all, and from the most unlikely of sources.
No man is an island, indeed, most notably a penal colony turned beachhead graveyard soon to be renamed ‘Desolation Island’…
DESOLATION ISLAND is Terry Lloyd Vinson’s homage to the Marvel comic book worlds he inhabited as a teen back in the seventies (Captain America, The Avengers, Iron Man, Daredevil, The Hulk, The Defenders, The X-Men, The Fantastic Four, Spider-Man), though with a decidedly harder edge.
Now available in ebook version at Double-Dragon Publishing and in paperback from Lulu.com. Soon to be on sale at many on-line retailers, to include Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com.
