The Shatter [ON HOLD]
Excerpt: *I can feel the seconds ticking away like a physical stabbing in my heart. Come on, you can do this, Vida, I think. You have to. Just dig that knife straight into his neck.
My fist is clenched so tight around the handle, my knuckles are white as snow. My body feels numb. My mind is racing at a hundred miles an hour, yet it feels like I'm moving in slow motion. No, not just me, everything is. He'll die. Because of me. I can't do it. I can't, I can't, I can't.*
One year ago, the world, with its inhabitants, shattered. Now only a lucky few have survived.

In this twisted world, with its brand new politics and structure, she might be forced to choose between staying true to herself, and doing what it takes to survive.
