Lani Cover.jpg


Paperback or ebook available at Amazon

Lani lives in a world controlled by fear, but she feels none of it. After she sneaks out of school one too many times her parents invite a Fear-Monger to intimidate her. That was the last straw for Lani, and she talks her Minotaur bodyguard into helping her leave the city. Beyond the walls Lani and Brutus come across a young warrior woman named Kas, an ancient samurai, marauding robots, deadly monsters, and the looming threat of Monger mercenaries tasked to bring Lani back to the city, by any means necessary. Lani learns of her world, love, and friendship in ways she never thought possible before.
