Hundreds of years after the Great Death desolated the planet, the world was reborn. Ruled by humans and filled with human-animal hybrids the difference between life and death is determined by a creature’s purpose and usefulness to society.
For a Producer the only guarantee of survival is being allowed to stay in the encampment. Those on the Harvest List are loaded onto carts and taken away, never to be seen or heard from again.
Only the finest examples of Producers are chosen to stay and breed. Trinity knows she's not one of them. She’s too short, too skinny and her eyes are too light and those are the traits she doesn’t hide. She’s spent her life concealing her claws and fangs because if anyone saw those, she’d be dead.
She has one week to discover where they’ll take her and that means she needs to sneak into the woods – again. But this time she stumbles across mutated monsters and predators long thought to be extinct.
Hunted at every turn, can she make it home before her week is up? And once she discovers the horrifying fate of her kind, does she dare return to her home and save her friends and family?
Q. – Why should someone read the Lake of Sins series?
If you’re looking for your typical dystopian, post-apocalyptic, survival thriller then you should look somewhere else. This story has been described as a one of a kind world created in a unique dystopian society.
The characters in the series are human-animal hybrids—genetic mutations or evil experiments, is yet to be revealed. It’s an entire new species of characters who don’t fit in the typical genre categories of vampire, werewolf, witch, fairies or even angels and demons.
The world of the Lake of Sins is segregated by class with the humans ruling supreme. In book one, Escape, Trinity unwittingly sets off a collision between the classes when she flees into the forest to discover the fate of her kind.
The books are fast paced with adventure and mutated creatures around every corner. There are legends that are truth and societal truths that are well guarded lies.
All-in-all, it’s a unique and exciting read and you should give it a try. I think you’ll love it.
The Conguise Chronicles series also takes place in the world of the Lake of Sins. These stories are prequels, explaining how some of the characters, who you meet in the Lake of Sins series, became monsters.
Q. – Who should read the Lake of Sins series?
Although there’s a strong, female lead in Lake of Sins, the audience for both series is broad. I have fans (male and female) aged ten through eighty. Anyone who likes gory thrillers that are dark, a little disturbing and packed with action will enjoy these books. If you like Hunger Games, Lord of the Rings and The Island of Dr. Moreau, then you’ll enjoy these tales.
However, a word of caution is in order. These books are not for the squeamish. Some scenes are bloody and violent almost falling into the horror genre, but the interactions between the characters are funny, poignant and loving (and a love triangle develops as the stories progress). Still, I wouldn’t recommend these books to anyone under thirteen without the parents reading the books first.

An event happened that killed all animals over 20 pounds and most humans. The world is now filled with human like creatures that are split into groups ruled by the Almighties. Trinity has hidden her claws and fangs from the Producers for years but it is time for the Harvest List and she knows that she won’t be on it, only those that look perfect get chosen. The rest get carted into the forest never to return. But she wants to know what happens to those that get taken away so she sneaks into the forest and makes a horrible discovery. This is an amazing world filled with fresh new creatures. This world has human like creatures and those that look like a human get selected to breed. Those that don’t disappear. Trinity knows that she will never be selected to be a Producer and she wants to know what happens to those not chosen. And what she learns with shake her to the core. I loved this book. It’s a fresh new world filled with its own personal hell. It’s easy to get sucked into the story when you feel for Trinity and hope for the best yet face fresh horrors with her. I couldn’t put this book down and now I want to read Secrets in Blood to see what happens next. This is a great dystopian story that you don’t want to miss. I received Escape from Reading Addiction Virtual Book Tours for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
A truly captivating story! The characters are complex, multi-faceted and unforgettable! I devoured the story in a single night and wasted no time getting started on book 2 or purchasing the remaining books available!
A great Dystopian series sure to become a favorite from fans of the Twilight or The Hunger Games sagas. Original with a storyline that is reminiscent of great storytellers expressing horrific themes without the blow by blow graphic descriptions that so often pass for good literature these days. You will find yourself following the characters who become real entities to the fans.
