What is your latest release and what genre is it? Bad City – post-apocalyptic science fiction

Quick description: In the violent world of post-apocalyptic South Town, Eli Baxter is king, ruling from the thirteenth floor of his building while henchman do his bidding. Simon Gray, a talented young thief, now disillusioned with South Town, is desperate to escape with the woman he loves. As he plots their journey north, glimpses of his childhood in South India and Northern Ontario reveal the world as it once was, fueling his desire to break away. But when he’s handed a new job, one that will make Eli untouchable, Simon realizes that escape – and transcendence to love and a peaceful way of life – might be harder than he thought.

I just finished Hunting the Moon (The Moon Series) by Becca Boucher. I really enjoyed it! There were ghosts, psychic visions, and Celtic lore. It was definitely an interesting story
