Dropped in an unknown location, presumably still on the planet, she only has a monolithic book — the Caudex — as her guide, but it’s not giving up its answers easily. Will she be able to uncover the mysteries? The fate of the entire word rests on her shoulders & her ability to push through all of the challenges set her way. Will she learn what she needs to step into her role as savior? Or will everything be derailed by her desire to get back to her friends? Book 2 of the Pendomus Chronicles


Pendomus (The Pendomus Chronicles Book 1) - Chapters 1-3 Sample

Even on Pendomus, hearing voices in your head isn't good... Everything on Pendomus is controlled. Food and sleep are synthesized. Personal affection is unheard of. Yet, miraculously, everyone feels as though they're fulfilling their life's duty. Their calling. Everyone except for seventeen-year-old Runa. The only thing Runa wants to do with her life is unravel the mystery of the dead trees surrounding her compound. When an invisible creature brutally attacks her out in those woods-she knows her life is over. She didn't anticipate being saved. Or being hunted. Runa starts hearing voices in her head, and the messages they send are clear: Follow their lead or die. *** Pendomus is an unforgettable, action-packed opening to a dystopian series brimming with mystery, magic, and suspense.
