The omnibus edition of Innocence Waning is a work of literary fiction that tells the story of sixteen-year-old Chezdon Morrison who desperately wants to lose his virginity.

During the course of Chezdon's story, he discovers actions do have consequences which are unintended. Material wealth indeed has limits in terms of providing the enjoyment of life and there are stimuli that impact on his choice of partners that dictates that words do in fact matter. Besides his peers, dysfunctional adults play a part in his development as he abuses both alcohol and illicit drugs.

In the course of Chezdon maturing quickly, he experiences both physical and psychological torment that most everyone can identify with in some form. The invested reader will be treated to complex characters whose lives intertwine with those of the adults, sometimes with grave consequences.

Chezdon ultimately must navigate a perfect storm of romance, sex, jealousy, drugs, abuse, and confusion with seemingly no way to break free. The Gordian knot that bound his once-perfect life completely unravels as his relationships with friends and family disintegrate as long-hidden secrets are revealed. His addictive personality combined with questionable choices sends Chezdon down a rabbit hole that he may not able to escape from as the world reacts to the choices that he makes.
