Book One of the Alliance Series.
What if everything you knew about the world around you was a lie, and the very people you were taught to fear were your salvation, your escape?
Meet Amelia, raised in the safety of a Replenisher compound, a protectorate for the few Alliance females who can bear children. In two months, she will have to choose a mate and begin her duties, except it doesn't happen like that.
When she witnesses a Zoriner boy fall over the wall of the compound, the very wall designed to keep those like her safe from those like him, the injured boy becomes her burden and maybe, if she lets him, her escape from the life she is meant to have, and the key to unraveling of the many secrets and lies on both sides of this conflict and each other.
PS: The story is written from multiple narrative perspectives, and the date, name of the character, and locations stamps under the chapter titles matter.
PPS: There is not any fantasy or aliens or anything too out of the ordinary here, but it felt more right to put it into this category if only because it does take place solidly in the future. These books are really all about character development. Yes, a bit in a future. Yes, somewhat dystopian, but if Wattpad had a YA genre, that's where I'd put it.
If you like what you are reading, please use the VOTE option available on each chapter. It'll let me know you are reading the book, and it'll help others discover it. It's a little star thingie at the top or bottom of the screen, depending on your device. Thanks a million!!!
