I didn't expect my mother to leave. I didn't expect to go on an impromptu trip to Brazil. I definitely didn't expect to find a dead body while there. Now caught in a less than ideal situation with no way out, Amira Denton is stuck on her own. Dealing with a secretive government agency, mysterious deaths, and mind-jerking secrets; Amira now has to do whatever it takes to get back to her family. How do you run from your problems, though, when they affect you from the inside out? -------------------------- This is my first novel, which is a fantasy/science fiction tale. The prologue is sort of separate from the storyline so the woman is NOT the main character (Amira Denton). It might just be a sneak peak for something just a little bigger later on ;) Amira has an interesting road ahead of her and I hope you enjoy reading her story! Feel free to make any suggestions, correct any errors, and request new chapters. I am here to listen! Thank you so much for reading and I hope you enjoy!
