I'm one of the many working to find a cure for the virus, to help us live naturally once more. The difference is I've found something, and it could change everything. I know I'm being watched, I know I'm in danger. There are those who don't want to go back to the old ways, who say we deserve our curse and that it is our eternal punishment. I say to hell with them. Whatever is causing us to die young isn't natural, and I'll fight until my dying breath to find a cure.


What she thinks she knows about our world and the work she is doing, if only she knew that the ones she's working for are the ones lying her... I don't know if I can trust her, but I have to try. If I can save her, she could help us in the fight against our oppressors. 

If I can save her, maybe she can save us all.


Generations of humanity have been plagued by the virus since the extremists created and released it in the mid twenty-first century. All efforts to find a cure have failed, and hope has all but faded.

Until now.

I can see this book having potential. But your title name bothers me a little bit. Just the grammer.
                              How about,
                              'InHumane'  ?

@kristinaswrite Ah, no problem. I can definitely see why now. Well, you are the author, so whatever fits perfectly will do :)

This seems pretty heavy for a first chapter, but it provides a character motivation and it certainly gets the reader interested. I for one am still on board.

That was a great hook and a well written beginning. Hope to see you as a follower and keep writing.

I can already tell you are an exceptional writer. It makes me wonder why this book doesn't have a lot of recognition.
