Andy Woodage's first entrance into his bio-engineered fantasy world of The After-Time Chronicles is One Small Spark, a young-adult fantasy novel of genetically engineered creatures, romance, blood, and belonging.

Imagine a world without oil, where metals are only available if they can be salvaged or recycled and even coal is running out. It’s a world where armies no longer build metal monsters, but biological ones. Genetic engineering has become the art of war.

This is 12-year-old Jothan’s world. Orphaned by a terrible accident, he dreams of one day leaving his uneventful life with his grandparents on the family’s griffin farm. However, when a catastrophic attack wipes out every homestead in The Zoological Zone, his world is turned upside down. When a warrior woman appears out of the flames and offers to take him to a place of safety, the fabled ‘Temple of Elohim’, he dives into his new adventure.

Accompanied by his best friend, the griffin Gozell, Jothan sets off across a land ravaged by poverty and wild creatures. He confronts many dangers along the way and his eyes are opened to an empire in the grip of war and unrest.

Will they make it to the Temple? Will they be welcomed when they arrive? Can Jothan unravel the secrets that seem to control the lives of everyone he meets, including his mysterious saviour?
