Overview

Saving the world on a daily basis didn’t make you a hero. Thomas Morgan knew that much from experience. The hard decisions he was forced to make weren’t pretty and not all that heroic. He was the one who did whatever it took to maintain security. Each day he climbed into the guard tower and kept the microcosm that was the community safe from Draghoul, the once-human monsters that attacked every night. More importantly, he watched out for the vulnerable, especially Charlie and her sister Star.

Charlie disguised herself as a boy, but Thomas knew the truth, and though she wasn’t aware and though it put them all in danger, he kept her secret from the others. Reality was harsh in this unmerciful world, and she didn’t stand a chance against the schemes of the self-appointed leader, Jonas Bannon, if he ever figured out the truth. Doing the right thing didn’t make Thomas a hero. But it did keep him human, and it did put him in range of mercy.

Meet the Author

It all started with an old-fashioned typewriter. When the family brought it home, all those stories and characters rolling around in her head could finally get out. The press and click of the keys satisfied in their own right, but when she pulled out a finished page, she knew this was for her. Since then, she's graduated to a laptop, but the stories still find a way out.She's a breast cancer survivor, a teacher, a wife, a mother, and from the very beginning--a storyteller. Always a hint humorous and honest to a fault, she loves to make people laugh and smile. Her goal in life is to achieve tact and stop procrastinating. The battle wages on.

    Great book

    Even though its a short story, only about 30pgs, its a great story. I also read the short story mercy from charlies p.o.v. It deals with human nature and about striving to keep your humanity even after the end of the world. Its a story about a girl after the end of the world trying to surive and take care of her baby sister star in a community where being female is dangerous and she either has to deal with human monsters inside the wall or real monsters outside of it. Cant wait to read book 1. Im already hooked after only reading this short story. Highly recommended. Review by Alicia D.
