Welcome to the last week of meeting the characters and learning more about the world of Subject A36 – the book drops next Thursday! I mentioned on my FB page I’m excited, but also nervous. It’s like raising a child, hoping you prepared him for the cold, hard world, and then shoving him out the door with a wish and a prayer that people will be kind to him.
On to meeting our last character.
Meet Oz. He hasn’t had an easy life. At the age of ten, he lost his younger twin brothers to The Colony and his parents soon after. While on his own, he sustained burns in a house fire that left scars on parts of his face and neck. He keeps his hair long enough to pull over the scars when he’s feeling self-conscious. Oz fights hard to rescue all hostages, but after losing his brothers, the children hold a special place in his heart. When they’re brought back to the compound after a rescue, you’ll find Oz telling them stories or giving pony rides on his back. Kids are occasionally frightened of his disfigurement, but Oz always wins them over.
The house below him is where Asher lived with his family in his early years. To the left is Oz hanging out at the compound. For reasons I can’t reveal, he’s got a lot on his mind.
I hope you enjoyed getting to know a little about my characters over the past several weeks – I know I like talking about them, lol. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
