Ashes to Ashes
Only a MADMAN stays SANE
in a MAD WORLD
Dust to Dust
When you look into the ABYSS,
the ABYSS looks into YOU.
Flesh and Blood
Being HUMAN is a given, but keeping
our HUMANITY is a CHOICE.
Skin and Bones
It is better to have ten SKELETONS our closet,
than to walk without BONES.”
Dust to Diamonds
Whether we fall by AMBITION, BLOOD, or LUST, like DIAMONDS we are cut with our own DUST.
Edgier YA Apocalyptic Horror
The Seize has steeped the Earth in ash and
imprisoned the souls of all mankind in the Deep, leaving a colorless
world behind, where the boundaries between good and evil, love
and hate, freedom and captivity are as blurred.
For Deuce, a self-proclaimed piece of shit and loner, being a recluse in an empty world is not all it’s cracked up to be. Against all that he believes about himself and a barrage of self-loathing, he becomes the reluctant leader of five exiled survivors. Like him, they are mentally and physically scarred, and have no idea how to play nicely with others. One is the Devil's son, one is a Darkling who feeds off energy like a vampire coveting blood, one is a little girl who pulls the wings off butterflies, one is the criminally insane, and one is death,
being chased by the Reaper.
Plunged into a horrific world, where the best they can do is choose between nightmares, they fall victim to prisons, man-eating cornfields, and transporters that turn them inside out, flinging them through time and space. Attacked by Vacants, Trolls, Gargoyles, and Suffering Demons, nothing compares to being pawns in a perpetual war between two eternals. To save the souls of mankind, the Exiled must drop the masks they are hiding behind and decide if there is a difference between
being human and being humane. Their biggest challenge?
To conquer the demons within, not the demons that chase.
Faces masked, memories erased.
The EXILED awaken in an altered place.
The hardest thing they confront?
The demons within, not the demons that affront.
