Hell hath no fury like a genetically engineered soldier sucker punched. So when Morrighan survives a colossal assault on her home, she doesn't plan to roll over and play dead.

Post-attack, Morrighan is fueled by the burning desire to find survivors by day, and haunted by visions of the brutal M.I.C.A. assailants by night. Until she realizes that betrayal has come from within. She vows to hunt down those who massacred her friends and family--and her abilities to redirect bullets mid-flight and rip steel from walls to use as improv torpedoes prove to be invaluable skills.
      
When Morrighan tracks the devious M.I.C.A. armed with little more than a defunct plasma gun and a sharp tongue, she realizes that the attack on her home was a linchpin in a nefarious conspiracy. Even the parents she thought she knew have serious skeletons in their closets, and those secrets are turning out to have dangerous repercussions. Just when Morrighan thinks she has a handle on all the family enigmas, she finds that her social standing has changed from citizen to criminal.  

For Morrighan to preserve what's left of her family and the world she knows, she'll need to sort fact from fiction, figure out who to trust, and bring her A-game before the clock ticks to zero.

I listened to your 'Creed of the Brotherhood' track whist reading. A perfect fit. Excellent name for the villain too. I am enjoying the story so far.
This is such a great classic ending. I like how you make us wonder just who's on the right side

You are a fantastic writer. Great relationship between Morrighan and Thanatos, you can just feel the rippling backstory between them. I can't wait to dig into this story more and learn more about Dreamwalking and what exactly that looks like. 
                              
                              Very good start, and I can't wait to read more.
wow, I had been under the impression that Morrighan was a guy's name lol
Nice first paragraph. It's simple but really engaging. Your descriptions were really vivid plus the readers get this "What is happening here?" phase that makes them want to read further. Well done :)
Love those lines. It added a touch of humor to a tense and compelling scene. :)
