Synopsis

The clock is ticking.

Chan has been chosen to deliver the good news and healing antidote… If his body doesn’t reject the antibodies.

Pete, who has been imprisoned and tortured by the Council, has been selected by Retter to be ambassador to the residents. But, does he possess the authority needed to persuade an entire city of skeptics?

And, while in the Open Air, Fran struggles with her own failures questioning whether she’ll always be an outcast living on the fringe of society.

In this final installment of The Ascension Series, love, sacrifice, and forgiveness go head to head with evil in an effort to save a city.

And a girl.


Teaser: Excerpt

     She smiled.
     Although she couldn’t kill an inanimate object, Fran knew she could easily take out a small lens. She glanced around, hoping to distinguish the Graphie in front her from his life-giving light source. Because of the darkened backdrop, for the first time, Fran was easily able to follow one of his beams to a nearby potted palm. She hurried to the plant and squatted low, feeling around for anything plastic or metal. Her fingers lit under a green-tinged beam, and she moved her hand along the surface. When she felt the nub, Fran smiled and stood. With the toe of her hard boot, she kicked the lens until she felt it shatter. Fran shot a glance over her shoulder to check on the guard, thrilled to see he had taken on a strange, two-dimensional shape. She scanned the area for another beam.
     The gaming board.
     Fran hurried to the board and ran her hand along the pole that it sat upon. With her arm fully extended overhead, she felt the nub. Too high to kick. She looked around for something to hit it with when an idea struck her. After running back to the plant, she grabbed a handful of glass stones from the pot and pulled the sling from her side. Load, swing, and release.
     Although Fran couldn’t hear the whistle of the stone over the Agora’s white noise, the undeniable crack of the lens reached her ears as bits of plastic flew from the pole. She whipped around to face the Graphie again, but now only a single red beam of light pulsed where he had stood. She followed the red beam to the leg of a nearby bench and laughed out loud as she wound up and launched her stone. The last ray died out and as the area darkened, Fran could hear a chatter rise from the small crowd of residents now released from the Graphie’s hold.

Impervious [1]

The residents of Impervious survived the War of Annihilation. And though the city is chock full of pleasures to tantalize and entertain, a Beast lurks in its corners. This Beast has destroyed most of Generations One, Two and Three. Therefore as Gen-Four prepares to take the stage, a provocative, yet questionable, method to avoid an untimely death becomes a cultural rage.

Fran is counter-cultural, living off the grid in true Rebel fashion. Her life is far from opulent as she scurries through dark tunnels, searching for hot meals and ditching the holographic security team. Yet, it’s a healthy trade-off. Unaccountability means The Council can’t wrap their cold fingers around her sliver of hope in the the Epoch--an end to the madness.

With the Beast on her tail, Fran grasps painfully onto this splintered sliver until, through a miraculous discovery, a new hope is born… If she can she outrun the Beast.

Implanted [2]

After a narrow escape from the city of Impervious, Fran’s heart aches for the ones she left behind. Pete. Could he, along with the remaining Rebels, have survived the Council’s violent oppression?

As Fran ponders the fate of her friends, an even more disturbing revelation drops into her world—the knowledge that she, along with anyone who had lived underground remains implanted with the sinister presence of the Council. A fate rendering her powerless to save.

Yet one with pure blood, untouched by the Council’s defiling, lives among them. Could he be the new lifeline of hope? Is salvation of the city worth risking the life of this one-and-only?
