Lake of Sins: Secrets in Blood
The disturbing and yet exciting sequel to Lake of Sins: Escape.
Having discovered the horrible fate of her kind, Trinity has left her family behind and is fleeing from the Almightys. Her friends have promised to help her, but they don't know that her blood holds a secret that some in power want revealed and others want destroyed.
Hugh Truent, an Almighty, learns that Trinity is a product of the mating of two different classes which is impossible, but if it's true, it's the discovery of a lifetime. He must catch her before she is destroyed, but someone will stop at nothing to ensure he fails, putting his life and the lives of those he loves in danger.
If you like mysterious worlds, action, human-animal hybrids who must work together to survive dystopian worlds then you'll love this science fiction/fantasy story about genetic engineering on an epic scale.
Interview with the AuthorQ. – So, why should someone read the Lake of Sins series?
Well, because it's great (smiles). However, 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, a sixteen-year-old Producer (the lowest of the classes), unwittingly sets off a collision between the classes when she flees into the forest to discover the fate of the teenagers who are removed from camp every year after harvest. Some say they are taken to another camp to keep bloodlines strong. Others say they are tortured. No one knows and Trinity is determined to find out, but what she doesn't expect is to be hunted by mutant creatures and predators long thought to be extinct.
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 Chimera 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.
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.
