Teaser Excerpt: 
Children were screaming. Buildings burned with unstoppable flames; in the distance, the tall, erect shopping centre that had once been Westfields looked like nothing more than a vast ball of fire. A woman cried out in terrror as she was snatched by a gang of men in balaclavas and dragged into the middle of the road where they proceeded to strip her and brutally defile her. Three men were being repeatedly stabbed by another group of masked men, blood pouring from their wounds and mouths, until they were kicked carelessly to the ground. Thugs yelled wildly with laughter as they doused petrol over the row of shops and buildings, striking matches and flicking them so that the buildings rose up in blazes. A group of thugs, men and women, seized two children who were wailing in the street, slapping them harshly, and throwing them into the back of a van, which drove off amidst the horror. Several men and women could be seen fighting the thugs, but they were outnumbered five to one.
“My Lord, it’s no good! There’s too many of them!”
“Fall back!” commanded Lord Renzo.  “Fall back!”

At that moment, Skye felt Lord Renzo’s pain and she howled in despair.

Lord Renzo and the man who had spoken to him dashed away from the burning buildings and from the terrified screams. To their left, a man screamed at them, pleading with them to save him as he was battered with bargepoles by a gang of masked men. But they kept on going. They could not help him. They would be slaughtered if they remained and then this nightmare would never end. Everywhere they turned, buildings burned, people were being killed, thugs laughed uproariously at the evil they had created; policemen lay dead on the ground in pools of blood while children screamed for their parents; one child was snatched away into the darkness by a masked man; two hysterical girls had been pinned to a wall and several thugs were shooting at them with guns from a distance as though they were playing a sick game of darts; Lord Renzo and his companion kept running, but there was no escaping the terror …’
