BOOK #1 [A Watty Finalist & Newly Edited!]
The Swarm - thought to have originated from biological warfare, arrived, it killed and left millions dead in its wake and still has not been eradicated as it makes its way around the world. A cure is not possible.

Irissa Maclin, a reclusive and hostile  girl from a desert region that borders the capitol Arid, is on the verge of turning seventeen. Girls of this age from the surrounding regions are selected at random for surrogacy. They will be taken to PURE, a lab to help harbor Seraphim - genetically perfect embryos.

If she is to be sent away, can the turmoil deep within her be mended by a young man from a neighboring region - a forbidden attraction that can change everything?

Secrets, betrayals, and love pave the path for Irissa. Will she choose her own fate, or succumb to the science that promises a brighter future?

It's scary to think that's only 4 years away. I mean I'm going to be 16 so if this borrower thing were to come true. I might have to become a surrogate. Which is scary to think about. Someone could change the whole world by making one stupid mistake.😁 I'm freaking myself out now

Baby making girls. Prologue gives you an idea of how the story will go. Great job.
