Acheron by Bryon Morrigan follows (but is not dependent on) the previously-released novella The Desert.


Cover art by Craig Paton.


Captain Nate Leathers thought that being a soldier in Iraq was hard enough. And when his convoy is attacked and he is taken prisoner by Iraqi insurgents, he thinks things won't get any worse than that either.

But that's when the entire world turns upside down. The city of Basra is under siege from creatures far worse than your average terrorist. And now Leathers will have to find a way to survive against monsters even more horrible than he can imagine, some of which are even human.


"[Bryon Morrigan's Acheron is] classic survival horror pitting a tough, sarcastic American soldier against an underground world's unleashed monsters. Prepare yourself for an edge-of-your-seat story that starts with a bang and doesn't let you go." —Craig DiLouie, author of The Infection and Tooth and Nail


Acheron was released as an audiobook from on July 12, 2011. It will be released in print and e-book formats from Permuted Press.
