The Sin Within

Original Action Drama Sci-fi Anti-Hero Lead Cyberpunk Male Lead Martial Arts Secret Identity Strategy Strong Lead Supernatural Virtual Reality

Subject-01 was a boy born to a pair of corporate drones, people who spent their entire lives living and working for a Mega-Corporation.  Tested out as an Esper as an infant, his parents sold him to the corporation.  Used as a test subject for unethical and outright illegal research, Subject-01 never knew anything outside of his 'purpose' in the corporation.

At least until his Esper ability 'awoken'.  From that point forward, his dreams of freedom instead turned to purpose, and he sets about putting in place a scheme that'd earn him his freedom as well as payback.  But outside the steel walls of the facility built inside the moon Rhea in Saturn orbit, he finds that not everything is a bright and peaceful as it should be.

The solar system is rife with politics, intrique, and cruelty.  The lives and rights of the common man mean nothing in the power of Mega-Corporations or the solar system-wide government known as the Solar Defense Force.  Learning a terrible secret kept long hidden by the ruling class and without any other options, Subject-01 is forced to embark on becoming the greatest villain the human race has ever known; if only to save everyone from themselves.

 


 

Hello everyone!  It's been a while, and I apologize for my long absence.  Things have been crazy, but I'm not going to get into that.  Instead, I'm bringing to you all a new story, which I'm just now getting my whole mind wrapped around.

I started the first chapter only a couple of days ago, and finally finished it tonight after getting a bit more inspiration.  I hope you enjoy it!  Unlike my other stories however this one is not in the LitRPG genre, although it does have virtual-reality.  Game worlds are not the premise of this story though, so sorry to burst your bubbles on that one.

Well, I'll leave you guys to get to it, and hopefully you enjoy the read!  As always, feel free to leave comments, suggestions, and the like!

The Last God (Excerpt)

Original Action Adventure Sci-fi Male Lead Strong Lead

This is an excerpt of the upcoming novel The Last God.

Everyone cheered the day the world ended. Everyone cheered the day he saved the world. Cael Cavanaugh did not.

Cael Cavanaugh survived the brutal invasion of his home and is now living with his family and adopted siblings on the ashen lands of the west. He rescues people from a fate that eclipses death and is the bridge between a rebel group that will stop at nothing to achieve its goals, and a tyrannical government that treats those who have not been reborn as dregs.

But when Cael inadvertently sets off the end of the world, he will have to choose between a government that could avert world annihilation but that holds sinister motives, or the equally vicious rebel group that would sacrifice everyone for what they call liberty, even those Cael holds dearest.

How far would you go to save the world?

There are a thousand ways to die in the desert-desperate outlaws, deadly predators, murderous elements, and betrayal. . .

Escorting Leigh Enderi-a greenhorn Enforcer with a reputation as shady as his own-he soon realizes the ghosts of his past have come to haunt more than his nightmares.

When the mission breaks down in the wake of bitter hatred and mistrust, even Kaitar's fabled talent may not be enough to bring them home again. Stranded in the red wasteland without contact, food, or water, they uncover a betrayal that could bring all they hold dear crumbling to the dust. . . and tear down the wall of lies surrounding them.

The Wandering Inn updates every Tuesday and Saturday on the main website. Join the discussion there.

 

An inn is a place to rest, a place to talk and share stories, or a place to find adventures, a starting ground for quests and legends.

In this world, at least. To Erin Solstice, an inn seems like a medieval relic from the past. But here she is, running from Goblins and trying to survive in a world full of monsters and magic. She’d be more excited about all of this if everything wasn’t trying to kill her.

But an inn is what she found, and so that’s what she becomes. An innkeeper who serves drinks to heroes and monsters–

Actually, mostly monsters. But it’s a living, right?

This is the story of the Wandering Inn.

The watcher of universe and stuff.

The most devastating thing to an eternal being must be boredom. If nothing can change you. How can you yourself change? Sometimes you got to learn that the hard way.

 

 

My first book. If anyone will ever read this, be so kind as to leave a comment. Even if all you say is an insult. As long as I can improve this work by your comment. It's all fine.

 

How do you even choose genre and tags before writing the whole story? There could be romance or there might not. How should I know for sure? Maybe later I can update tags as the story moves along. Well one thing is for sure. I tend to write as if my reader can handle curse words without curling into ball and repeatedly saying: "Leave my safe-space alone you monster". So you can expect some profanity.
