Titan [Book Two Of The Clara Conn Trilogy]
[C O M I N G S O O N]
I've never understood why they thought that mankind needed to be restrained, roped, herded, separated into the weak and the strong to destroy creatures that they had bred to be our allies.
They never told us how painful it would be.
As they lifted the skin and cut into our bone, placing the chip among muscles and veins, it was the after that numbed, the moment when we were allowed to open our eyes and we felt nothing.
Not a cut, not a scratch, not a single feeling.
The purest of all pain.
They changed us into monsters, mindless collaborations of man and machine used to fight and to protect.
To protect a city of those they preserved.
I don't know what made me flawed, why I was rejected, why they made me into this monster while my family was sent beyond the wall into a city of lights and harmony.
They bath in sunlight and live in peace while I kill without purpose and destroy without reason.
I don't know why I was chosen, or why any of us were made into Titans.
Heads shaven, chipped, mindless, powerless.
A life of observation without action is one full of hardship, and after twenty years my thoughts have become dull company.
But I can sense a change, as more of us die, I can tell that a war is on it's way.
Perhaps I will be set free, or perhaps I will be sent off to fight.
My name is Kaiden Bishop
And I am one of thousands
One of millions
A war is coming
And I am afraid to die
