The Engineer is the first anticipated fantasy novel in a series by Darran M Handshaw. It follows the story of Engineer Actaeon Rellios in the ruined futuristic city of Redemption, a shattered remnant of the advanced people known only as the Ancients, strewn with dangerous technology, strange creatures, and unforgiving terrain.

For the people who live in the ruined city, survival is paramount – politics, war and sustenance rule the minds of most there. But for Actaeon, an inquisitive mind and an endless quest for truth guide him. But will these qualities lead him to discover the ultimate truths of the city, or will they drive him to the same ruin as the Ancients?
