Day Boy

Trent Jamieson

He told me once what they dream of.

‘The Sun, blessed and pure, a long shore, a wave that breaks, and the hunt. These are the endless things, so deep in us that we are nothing without them. We dream of a place that is all predation; a place between the light and the dark where the blood is hot and sweet, and everything is possessed of purity.‘

Mark is a Day Boy.

In a post-traumatic future the Masters - formerly human, now practically immortal - rule a world that bends to their will and a human population upon which they feed. Invincible by night, deep asleep and all but helpless by day, each relies on his Day Boy to serve and protect him.

Mark has been lucky in his Master: Dain has treated him well. But as he grows to manhood and his time as a Day Boy draws to a close, there are choices to be made.

In Day Boy Trent Jamieson reimagines the elements of an ancient myth in a wholly original way. This is a beautifully written and surprisingly tender novel about fathers and sons, and what it may mean to become a man. Or to remain one.
