|| Synopsis || Teaser: KCR Preview || The Series || About the Author || Giveaway & Tour Stops ||


The futuristic world of Craigluy has been divided into three territories and three economic classes. A large wall separates the territories, so the poor cannot mingle with the rich.

Since President Esther, the ruler over all of Craigluy, believes the poor do not have adequate means to take care of children, they are no longer allowed to procreate. Pregnant mothers are imprisoned until their babies are born, then the infants are taken away.

Emma Whisperer is the last child to survive. She is the last child born in lower-class Territory L before the law was instituted in the year 2080. She is the last eighteen-year-old.

Emma struggles to understand why she was spared while others weren’t. She doesn’t like the laws and believes they should be repealed. Her family doesn’t agree with her; they discourage her rebellious streak. Yet, she helps them to cover up their own family rebellion. She helps them to hide a big secret, a secret that could be both disastrous and deadly for members of their family.

As she meets new people along the way, Emma learns who she can and cannot trust. And, in the end, she makes a gut-wrenching decision that may be disastrous for everyone.

She finds herself in danger for doing what she feels is right.

Journey To Territory M [2]

The second book in the Extinction series takes Emma and her old and newfound friends on a wild journey.

Emma Whisperer’s journey continues in this sequel to the Extinction series. Emma, the last eighteen-year–old in Territory L, finally escapes Territory L and makes it into Territory M. She tries to find her niece, Abigail, and searches for the leader of Territory M to see if the walls can come down.

She brings two friends with her on her journey to finish what she started back in Territory L. Emma hides out, trying not to get caught.

Who can she trust? Will they find Abigail? Is she still alive? Will they find the newbie camp? Will they find out who the leader of Territory M is? Will the leader help them bring the walls down?

Emma thought escaping from Territory L would solve all of her problems. She soon finds out that escaping to Territory M is not all she envisioned it would be. President Esther, Rich, and the leader of Territory M have more in store for Emma than she bargains for.

Take a ride with them as their adventure begins in an abandoned college where they meet up with some unruly characters. Will these people, known as the runaways, be friends or foes?

Look great

Bernie Wallace said...

How long did it take you to write your book?

L.J. Epps said...

Hi Edgar, Thank you.

L.J. Epps said...

Hi Bernie, It took me about two years to write the first book. Once the first book was finished I continued on writing the rest of the series. Thanks for your question.

Bernie, thanks for the smile.

donna porter said...

What books are next??

L.J. Epps said...

Hi Donna, I have three books out in the Extinction Of All Children series. Journey To Territory M and Journey To Territory U are the next books in the series. Sadly that will probably be the end of the series, unless I come up with another journey for Emma to go on. I could maybe do that one day if my brain lets me. lol I am currently working on a women's fiction/drama/romance novel. It's about a woman who finds herself left alone with a child after her husband leaves her. She has to figure out how to move on without him. I'm working on it now and I hope it's out by next spring. Thanks for your question.
