Here it is – the sequel I thought might never see the light of day. Most of it was written during the pandemic when I really wasn’t feeling writerly. The characters and I weren’t getting along – they didn’t want to talk, but were also frustrated I was taking so long to tell the rest of their story. The character I thought would take the helm wasn’t stepping up. Another one, someone I didn’t expect, demanded to drive the story. After some group therapy sessions between all of us, we finally came to an agreement. I put my butt in the chair, they talked, and I listened. So, at long last, I give you The Insurgent.
If a megalomaniac threatened your family, would you give up your freedom for them? Would you give up your soul?
Asher Solomon is faced with that choice. And makes the ultimate sacrifice.
Exactly as Director Silas Reeves expected him to.
Unable to live as the Colony’s premier assassin, Ash retreats to a corner of his mind, ceding control of his body to the alter-ego he was engineered to be—Subject A36. As he’s unleashed to battle the Insurgents, the only family he ever knew, the tide of war shifts in Silas’s favor.
Combined with his expansion into new territories, the director is poised to take over the world.
But the Insurgents don’t give up easily. Not on their cause, and not on their people. With the help of a few double agents deep in the Colony, they stand a fighting chance at ending Silas’s reign.
In order to shut down the program, they face almost insurmountable odds. And their most dangerous foe—their former champion turned killing machine, A36.
