Interview with the Author

Q. - So, why should someone read the Lake of Sins series?

Well, because it's great (smiles) and you can get the ebook for FREE.  However, if you're looking for your typical dystopian, post-apocalyptic, survival thriller then you should look somewhere else.  This story has been described as a one of a kind world created in a unique dystopian society.  

The characters in the series are human-animal hybrids--genetic mutations or evil experiments, is yet to be revealed.  It's an entire new species of characters who don't fit in the typical genre categories of vampire, werewolf, witch, fairies or even angels and demons.

The world of the Lake of Sins is segregated by class with the humans ruling supreme.  In book one, Escape, Trinity, a sixteen year old Producer (the lowest of the classes), unwittingly sets off a collision between the classes when she flees into the forest to discover the fate of the teenagers who are removed from camp every year after harvest.  Some say they are taken to another camp to keep bloodlines strong.  Others say they are tortured.  No one knows and Trinity is determined to find out, but what she doesn't expect is to be hunted by mutant creatures and predators long thought to be extinct.

The books are fast paced with adventure and mutated creatures around every corner.  There are legends that are truth and societal truths that are well guarded lies.  

All-in-all, it's a unique and exciting read and you should give it a try.  I think you'll love it.

The Conguise Chronicles series also takes place in the world of the Lake of Sins.  These stories are prequels, explaining how some of the characters, who you meet in the Lake of Sins series, became monsters.

Q. - Who should read the Lake of Sins series?

Although there's a strong, female lead in Lake of Sins, the audience for both series is broad.  I have fans (male and female) aged ten through eighty.  Anyone who likes gory thrillers that are dark, a little disturbing and packed with action will enjoy these books.  If you like Hunger Games, Lord of the Rings and The Island of Dr. Moreau, then you'll enjoy these tales.

However, a word of caution is in order.  These books are not for the squeamish.  Some scenes are bloody and violent almost falling into the horror genre, but the interactions between the characters are funny, poignant and loving (and a love triangle develops as the stories progress).  Still, I wouldn't recommend these books to anyone under thirteen without the parents reading the books first.

Book Description Lsodea, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Backbreaking work from dusk to dawn is just a typical day for sixteen year old Trinity, but that is about to change. Harvest is over which means that it s time for the less than perfect teens to be removed from camp. Trinity is okay with that. It s just another stage of a Producer s life, but she fears her new home will be like her old one unless she can figure out a way to make friends. She s different than the other Producers and even though she s hidden her fangs and claws her entire life, the others still sense her strangeness. She concocts a plan to sneak into the forest and discover where the teenagers are taken every year. Once she figures that out she can return home. The other kids will be dying to learn the secret which means that they will have to talk to her and she s sure that once they get to know her, they ll like her. Escaping into the forest is simple; she s done it before, but never at night. That is different. So is the feeling that she is being followed. Then she stumbles across a new creature. A large human-like river creature and that is only the beginning of her adventures in the forest. She is hunted, captured, and befriended but she still needs to discover the fate of her kind and return home before the week is up or her mother will be punished for her escape. Dive into the world of the Lake of Sins and view life from a different perspective. I haven t been this hooked on a story since The Hunger Games. M. Cassidy What a great plot! This story swept me in and kept me entertained from beginning to end. Peyton Siruski. Seller Inventory # APC9781942706007
