Blood & Shadows

War is brewing and the Shadows are on the move. It’s time to choose a side…

Synopsis

Humanity has already survived the worst fallout in history, but it hasn’t come out unscathed. Now, civil unrest is growing as those who are aware that people with extraordinary abilities now exist choose to label them a threat. Another war looms as the two sides wage their battles in the shadows, tearing families apart, thrusting couples together, while the rest of civilization gets caught in the crossfire.

Series Notes

This series is set far in the future, beginning in the year 3028. Humanity has survived a terrible war that had affected birth rates to the point where scientific intervention was necessary. Every individual born has to be chemically treated soon after birth in order to live a full, fertile life and for population growth to sustain itself. But this practice has caused a rift in society with some condemning the practice as unnatural, even harmful. Meanwhile, the government has noticed a rising number of people showing resistance to the treatments and has authorized experiments to be conducted on prison inmates to test the effects and implications.

Burning Questions Answered

WARNING: Potential spoilers ahead. Expand at your own risk.

Short answer: Yes and no.

 

Longer answer: Before I wrote book 4, I had begun a short novella that would have taken place shortly after book 1 and involved a couple of characters from that book. I never finished it, but it's still there in my files. When I wrote book 4, one of the side characters had such a strong presence and loud voice I thought maybe I could keep the series going. I even came up with concepts, titles, and book covers for 3 additional books to add to the series. But book 4 burned me out so much I couldn't even think of going back to it, so the idea, along with all its notes and materials, got shelved.

 

With that said, I still love this world and the characters in it. The ideas I came up with are still intriguing enough that I want to come back to them eventually. No promises, but I am strongly considering it.
