Ravenlight 1- Embers of the Past

Elise Bakuuva wants nothing more than to live an average life, to find acceptance in life and a goal for said life; though for her, a normal life seems nigh impossible. Living among the Dragon Descendants of Vulfax, she finds herself everywhere from belittled to abused by peers and family alike. The majority reject her docile book loving ways which go against their ruthless warrior ways.

Facing daily misery and depression, even physical assault, the path to find herself becomes increasingly difficult and lost to an endless fog. Things grow even more hopeless when new eyes set upon her. The Hive, warriors of Dark Power and Magic, striving to capture the Earth and bring it under their control. The Tribe, an unknown enemy to the supernatural, seeking to find Vulfax.

With enemies of the clan moving every day threatening the few things she clings to, a choice will have to be made. To become a warrior for the sake of what she needs to protect, to let things continue as they may, or to walk away from everything in the hope of a better tomorrow. One thing becomes certain to her though; her past is not the past she believes it is as more and more answers lay themselves bare as the enemies of Vulfax tighten their grips. Diving down further, she will struggle to find what she wants and believes, or she will dig her own grave in the process. The race is on!

The Mutated

Five years ago, a lab assistant in Georgia managed to create a mutation that could travel from the DNA of a mosquito to a DNA cell of a human.

When told to destroy the cell for fear of peoples safety, he refused, breeding mosquitoes with the mutation and sending them out.

The first wave of panic spread when citizens learned the mutation had spread, the second, a tsunami of terror when scientists realized the DNA cell effected was only preset in people under the age of twenty-five.

In a desperate attempt to protect their children, adults began staying at home, avoiding contact with the outside world.

Through many distanced meetings, the government decided the best way to avoid this crisis would be to round up all the people who develop the mutation, keeping them secured in special facilities.

When a group of twenty-year-old's escaped however, they realized it wouldn't be so easy to control this virus they fittingly named Extirpation Alteration 45.

Deciding it was the only way to save the human race, the president payed for every adult over the age of thirty to join his in a newly built space station, issuing that anyone who couldn't leave their children behind would have to stay.

Now, in 2050, Tate Stevens is prepared to fix the problem her parents were too cowardly to face.

With her group of truly useless teenage companions, can Tate help the others and save the world from destruction?

________________________________________

The screams were alive, sharpening my senses and making the hair on my arms raise in anticipated fear.

Every year it happened. Another member of our small group would start developing the mutation, leaving the rest of us worried about who would reach the dreaded 'age' next and be lost forever.

Last time it was Charlie White. Now as Rebecca screamed and tore at the chains wrapped around her chest, I finally understood why Katy was so wary about accepting stray children.

After the adults left, we lost structure. We lost understanding. We began to lose ourselves.

That's when I decided that I would bring them back. All of them.

Every child was going to come back home again, and I would make it happen.
