In an alternate America where one test determines your worth, Ivan failed...
Five years after the Prism Test made Ivan a Red slave, the world now knows him as Coyote, a masked rebel devoted to protecting his fellow Reds and destroying the People's Front government that put him in chains.
But when he is injured saving a girl named Julia and wakes up in the royal hospital, Ivan knows his life will never be the same. Julia is a princess from the remnants of the Prism-exempt monarchy, and soon after he's inducted into the royal service, Ivan realizes she's his only hope to free his people.
He's not the only one with his eyes on the princess, though. Slave-traders and scheming royals watch Ivan and Julia's every move. And when Ivan uncovers a sinister plot that threatens both his people and the girl he's fallen for, he will be forced to choose: his freedom or her life.
The Fractured Prism is the intense first step into the dystopian world of The Prism Files. With a fun and diverse cast of characters, a twisting plot, and a dynamic world based on a unique alternate history, this book will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.
The Prism Files continue with book 2: Crimson Reigns.
About the Author
Brendan is a recent graduate in Economics from Hillsdale College in Michigan. In 2019, he moved from his hometown of Canton, Michigan to Rockford, Illinois when he married his wife, Andrea. Brendan began his writing career in November of 2018 with a challenge from his wife to complete NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), where new authors attempt to write an at least 50,000 word book in a month. At first, he was hesitant to take the first step, but he quickly fell in love with writing, and by the end of November, the first book, The Fractured Prism, was born. In addition to writing, he is a data analyst and soccer referee.
Outside of writing, his top interests include watching both German and American soccer, analyzing political elections across the world, playing extremely nerdy strategy video games, exploring with his wife, and reading.
