Locus of Control
Kyler was a well-respected scientist who always found time to stop and smell the roses. Brice was a boxer who ignored the roses while waiting for his chance at the championships. That was until the Locus virus escaped from the lab where Kyler worked and quickly began to spread. The victims mutated rapidly and consumed anything that they could put in their mouths, including their once fellow man.
Almost a decade later, this destructive virus has devastated most of the human population. Food is hard to find, and friends are even harder. They meet on a rooftop by chance, and Brice’s distrust of other survivors leaves them at odds. His suspicion only grows with Kyler’s positive attitude, generosity, and desire for companionship. Despite rising tensions, a spark is born between them as they’re forced to spend time together. A spark, however, is tender and fragile in a violent world. Other survivors hiding selfish desires could extinguish their spark and ruin their chances at love in an anarchic wasteland.
The Apprentice Assassin
Magic, power, and blood. It’s all about who you know. Thomas was raised to be a fighter. With no known magical power to speak of. He pushed himself harder to gain the respect he desired. Joining the military at sixteen, he rose through the ranks as fast as he could, even going so far as to accepting vision-enhancing implants. Seven years later, his hard work finally paid off. He and his squadmates are sent on a mission to the eastern continent to recover secret documents from a rogue faction of spies. The information is said to contain information on the Flara, a group of shady billionaires who are slowly buying up every corporation they can get their hands on, and the weakness to the Cantorians. An evil group of seemingly immortal creatures with powers beyond the human scope.
