“It is the way of evolution,” Elias says, his words getting lost in the roar of the wind. “Two species of human cannot coexist. To believe so is to be naïve.” -OuterSphere
In book two of the Rayne Trilogy, Rayne discovers everything she knew about the world and the Ancients is a lie, and there are others who are just like her.
The master eagle carries her to an invisible surface in the sky, an illusion concealing a towering wall of stone. On the other side is the outersphere. The poisoned air in this land of destruction and decay makes her desperate to leave, but a distant shot from below forces her captive in a world that shouldn’t exist.
After witnessing a thing called murder, she encounters a species supposed to be extinct. It is in this scorched, desert world, void of the sun and rain, where she learns the source of her abilities and the malevolent purpose behind them.
It is also in the outersphere where she is forced to abandon everything she believes in, for the sake of survival. Refusing means the death of innocent life, and it is a choice she never dreamed she would have to make.

Quoleena has loved creative writing since she was a child. In 3rd grade, she won a scholastic award for her illustrated short story, "Little Girl Lost." She wrote poetry and short stories during her guitar-playing college days in San Diego, all of which she keeps buried in a box of memories.
Her favorite books to read tend to be in the days of horse-drawn carriages and noble courts. And she absolutely loves books set in worlds void of technology and unlike our own, with swords and magic and mystical creatures.
