THE DEEPEST CUT:
Already a social outcast because of his father’s alleged betrayal, young Joshua finds himself trapped outside the mining colony on the planet of Cypress Grove. He faces an unknown jungle infested with a creature so deadly, that it has kept all humans confined inside their only settlement for decades. If he can manage to survive these alien wilds and find a way back into New Cincinnati, he will then have to brave the even darker dangers of the colony’s criminal underworld.
It is a premature coming of age, a fight for survival in an environment demanding resiliency, inventiveness, and self-reliance. But when teetering on the sharp edge of stark choices, decisions of life or death, can Joshua afford to consider questions of right and wrong, or does expediency rule the day?
FORGING THE BLADE:
An inscrutable stranger offers him a deal that seems too good to be true. And it is. Joshua soon faces new challenges to survive in a place he had not believed was even real.
Having successfully evaded the colony’s underworld and corrupt police, Joshua finds himself trapped alone in a sterile white room. But it is no ordinary room, changing and shifting in response to his reactions and behaviors. Ultimately, he will have to make a choice… one that will forever change the direction of his life.
