The Gauntlet: Rising
"Okay, I know you don't know what's going on, but just follow my lead and be quiet, got it?
The boy nodded, not knowing what he was in for. Sweat started tricking down his brow, not just due to the weather but to nervousness, he hasn't done anything like this before. But he swallowed his fear, and toughened himself. For for what was to come.
"Ready?" Aero's cold eyes glinted with mischievous finesse.
"Ready." Trevor responded.
Codi James, a name that followed Aero around ever since she joined the new and improved Brax-Delta Gauntlet Academy. Everyone who knew about James had a tendency to compare one to the other. They had their similarities, but Aero was different: the was seen as graceful and cunning but her sly and mischievous tendencies usually ended in havoc. Sure she was an orphan, and was kicked out of many foster homes for being well...herself, but she had a spark in her. Something that would change the galaxy as we know it. But her story is only one side of a coin on the other there is Mark Vin a man with emense power who controls the Galaxy. Under his rule there was a new form of guard built, Drones. Made to keep people in check, but soon Vin's rule became more of a tyranny as loses touch with what little good morals he had in his quest to protect people from themselves.
3065 is marked down as the most dramatic year of the Gauntlet see how these two stories lead to that very moment.
Special thanks to Jamie Harris @words_are_weapons wrote the original Gauntlet series and inspired me to write this.
It's a unofficial adaptation/continuation of his story, but it's still it's own book. This book goes outside the lines of the Gauntlet but it goes right back in.
Hope you enjoy and happy reading!
