Dystopia

There are ghost stories of the monsters, folk tales describing hideous creatures hunting for blood. Edith never believed any of the stories. She was a child of science, her father one of the only doctors around. She grew up traveling the wastelands seeing things that taught her the world was scarier than folk tales.

But then she sees it. And there's no turning back as she's shoved into a world where monsters are alive and breathing; a world where her science might not be able to protect her from the horrors that a crippled world intends to hide.

Adventure

Seraphim's "life" was normal. Her days were routine and predictable. Yet it was all she could ask for after being an Angel of Death. Though the title was enough to impress any of the spirits that passed by her in her graveyard, it was simply a title that her boss gave her on the date of her death. 

Oh, and about that little boss of hers? Well Death has a little problem; someone has threatened his life. Much unlike the popular belief that Death cannot be killed, he can. And if Death is killed, then the whole world will spiral into chaos. Life and Death will be broken. Balance will be nonexistent and the end will ultimately clash upon the earth in a raging inferno. According to Death, of course.

Seraphim must stop this assassin before they destroy Death and all that he embodies. But what if she believes that once Death is gone then maybe she could return back to her body and retain her old life back? What if all that she stands for is ripped out from under her leaving only her will and determination to fuel her fire?

To keep this world in its corrupted balance or kill Death and bring Life to reign as sole king over Earth forever?

*Hey everyone! I was wanting to put this story out on this website and see what people say about it. Feedback and critical comments are highly appreciated. Thank you:)*

Azara Stirling's life was anything but perfect. With her father long gone and her mother so consumed in work she never spared a moment with her only daughter; Zara never imagined how it could get any worse. 

She was horribly wrong.

With the new fear of exploding into an inferno of fire and killing anything in the vicinity if her short fuse is lit, Azara must go on a mission to rescue more of her kind before the Achyles Men find them first.

That is, if she can control the embers within her from being lit ablaze and swallowing her whole.

Dystopia

Gone is a time when happiness filled every family's home. Gone is a time when parents could provide for their children. That was a moment in history when everything was perfect. When everything was right. 

The Land of the Free is now just a fading memory in the minds of the elderly. Few families have the money to provide for a home for their children. Those select few live in classified areas where they are completely cut off from the corrupt world around them.

Where are the rest of the survivors, you may ask? Well, they live in the places that the great war has left behind. They live in wastelands where nothing is safe when drug-lords are ruling with an iron fist.

Then Charlotte Davis comes into play, and she is willing to tear down whatever walls she has to in order to reach sanctuary. She's willing to do whatever it takes to reach the last family she has left. Davis isn't like any of the other Corrupted. No. She's different.

She's a Fallen, and she's more powerful than anyone could ever imagine.

He only promises freedom on the outside. But from what Myra has seen outside of the concrete walls of her prison is nothing good. But the girl knows it's much better out in the desolate desert than being brainwashed in her cold prison cell.

With only the boy's blue eyes to confirm her that he's anything but a trick, she trusts him. But was it a wise decision to leave the only place that promised a meal every day? Is Myra about to kiss death himself trying to find one place that keeps her safe?

After the terrorist attack of 2039, the American people are seeking revenge. With the nation in shambles, it is up to James Henry Matthews II to take down the terrorist and bring America back to its foundation.

***

James Henry Matthews II  is the common go-to guy for vengeance and murder, but after a mission gone wrong, he is scrambling to restore his honor and his life at home. However, with many twists and turns, James realizes things aren't as they seem. With the nation's hope and the guilt of his brothers death hanging on him, he may crack under the pressure. Will he and his friends complete the mission?

***

Lucy Rodriguez is a young mastermind, and behind the terrorist attack of 2039. But when a mystery boy comes around, she begins to question everything she knows. What has she been hidden from? What should she do next? The answers to her questions lead to death, one way or another, but whose side is she on?

Thanks for checking out the intro to my novel! Now, here's for some dedications and why I wrote/am writing this.  :)

I got the idea for this novel for several friends of mine who have been struggling with family life / struggling with depression / ect... Though they go through this, they still have the time to keep me company and make me laugh. They'd tell me things they tell no one else and over time, it begins to affect people. So I intertwined it into this novel, what happened to them.

So I dedicate this novel to them. Cassidy, Jasmine, Jason, Leah, James.
