Fight for Love. Fight to Survive. Save Levitor City.
Young and ambitious Earmon climbed the ladder in Levitor City. As the Queen’s topmost advisor, he has everything he’s ever dreamed of—except for princess Zenithia’s love.
In a world of intrigue, blood, and war, his love is put to the test. When he witnesses an intruder inside the city and decides to keep it a secret, he unwittingly unleashes a terrifying chain of events. His friend, Turak, is under attack, and Levitor’s shield fractures. The horde of savages and beasts prowling outside the city advances, and Earmon must battle for survival.
But his hardest trial is yet to come: 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.
A baker’s apprentice bites off more than he can chew when he discovers the truth of who he really is.
Seventeen-year-old Kallum has life all planned out: pass his simulation test, snap up a job on the upper rung, and ask the girl of his dreams out. No more working at the bakery.
But life has a funny way of ruining plans.
Not only does he get reassigned to a hermit, but his hallucinations also make him fear that he’s turning into his worst nightmare: becoming one of the Crazies.
Worse still, the aetherium, an energy stone bestowed by the alien race called the Aeternas, is failing. And, according to the hermit, it’s all Kallum’s fault. Without the dome shield protecting Levitor, the Reavers and beasts roaming the land outside are bound to invade.
Levitor’s fate rests upon Kallum’s shoulders. He’s the only one who can seek out his father, who has the means to save the city. But the Aeternas are hunting him down, and he’s running out of time.
What will he sacrifice for the greater good?
