Young and ambitious Earmon has climbed up the ladder in Levitor city to become the Queen’s topmost advisor. He seems to have everything he’s dreamt of but for one thing: princess Zenithia’s love.
When he witnesses an intruder inside the city and keeps it quiet, he unwittingly unleashes a terrifying chain of events. His friend, Turak, has an episode that results in a fracture in Levitor’s shield, and the horde of Reavers prowling outside the city advances.
In a world of intrigue, blood, and war, Earmon must battle for survival against savages and beasts.
His hardest trial is yet to come, and he will have to face a choice no one should ever have to make: protect the life of the one he loves the most at the risk of losing his own.
In the end, will he be enough to save her and the city?
Shackles of Guilt is a page-turning young adult sci-fi novel packed with suspense and a touch of romance and fantasy.
All Kallum wants is a peaceful life in Levitor city with the girl of his dreams. He has life all planned out. But after a simulation test unexpectedly leaves him reeling, normal takes a whole different meaning. He loses his guardian and fears he’s turning into his worst nightmare—a Crazy.
Worse than all of this? He finds he’s the cause of the fracture in the aetherium, a stone of vast energy that powers the dome protecting Levitor. Now the threat of invasion from the savages outside looms.
What is this aetherium stone bestowed by the Aeternas, an alien race? Who are they? Why did they give the stone in the first place? Are they so benevolent? Probably not. No Levitorian citizens dare to question.
To top it all, the Aeternas are now out to get him. The Shadowers, Levitor’s rulers, are more than happy to deliver him on a plate.
It’s up to Kallum to fix the aetherium and save Levitor city. He will have to choose where he belongs and what is really worth sacrificing for the greater good.
Will he have the courage to do what must be done?
