The Only City Left by Andy Goldman

 

In the far future, the Earth is one giant planet-sized city, and it is in disrepair. The majority of the Earth’s human inhabitants are gone and in their place other, darker creatures are moving in. Allin Arcady is a young man on his own deep in the bowels of the city, his one goal to reach the Roof of the World and see the Sun. But his past, and that of his deceased parents, is coming back to haunt him, and the Sun has never seemed farther away.

Note: The Only City Left contains some graphic violence and harsh language.

We follow the adventures of the young adult Allin Arcady on his bumpy road of finding his own path in this dangerous setting accompanied by a bunch of creatures ranging from wonderful to creepy.
