when you're not human yourself?
It's been two hundred years since the Trauma, a catastrophic event of a now forgotten origin, wreaked havoc upon the Earth, reducing the human population from billions to thousands, and leaving the survivors as prey to humanoid hunters. Vrana of the Raven is one of these hunters. Her tribe has made killing humans, now known as the Corrupted, its purpose-to "keep the balance"-to ensure that the Corrupted do not rise to power and lay the Earth to ruin once more.
But, one night, in the great northern city-state of Geharra, over ten thousand Corrupted disappear. And if so many can disappear so quickly, what's to stop it from happening again elsewhere, or to Vrana's own?
Geharra, however, is not the only place to suffer from strange happenings. In Caldera, Vrana sleeps fitfully, dreaming of a Void and the Witch trapped within. When she is called upon to travel with Serra, Lucan, and Deimos to the abandoned city, she accepts, but only to get away from Caldera, because the Witch that haunts her nightmares has begun to haunt her days.

About the Author
For the longest time, Scott considered himself a literary writer, but after many years of bad poetry and unfinished novels, he realized it was not meant to be. His true passion, he discovered, was genre fiction. Scott had been raised on Science Fiction, Fantasy, and, most importantly, Horror. And at the end of the day, it was in these strange and fantastic worlds that Scott was most comfortable, and most inspired. It seemed only fitting he should then return to them and add his own worlds to the universes there, for others to explore and revel in their terrifying beauty.
Scott started with screenplays and then moved onto short stories and novelettes. When he had a sizable body of work, he began linking each screenplay, short story, and novelette, so that they existed within the same world, creating a rich tapestry of characters and plots. And then he realized these works were building towards something: an even greater story, one which could not only benefit from the intricate timeline of supplemental material, but one that could be expressed fully through the use of the same genres that had informed Scott's creations all his life: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror.
That's when he started The Bones of the Earth, his first novel and the first part of his post-apocalyptic fantasy/horror series.
Today, Scott works ceaselessly on the follow-up to "The Bones of the Earth" and its companion novel.
