I decided to share a teaser from "Allegiance", something I wasn't planning on doing. But I'm excited and I need to share at least the opening with someone. :)
I've put the teaser behind a cut to avoid spoiling those of you who have yet to start the series. Please, I beg of you, do NOT read this if you haven't read the first book.
Here is the opening to "Allegiance":
Hope.It was both the best thing and the worst thing that could happen to a person. It had the ability to consume a person, to become them.I used to believe in the idea of hope before I saw what it had done to Hayden – what I had done to Hayden.I glanced down at the tablet in my hand – at his face that filled the screen, at the eyes of someone who’d put their trust in me – and felt my chest tighten. I was the reason he was being held captive at Vesta Corp. I was the reason his life was in danger. I was the reason his sister had been taken away from him. Twice.“You did what was needed, Alexis.” My mother’s voice was cold, uncaring.I tossed the tablet onto her desk and leaned back in the black cushioned chair. “You promised me that he would be okay. You promised me,” I snarled.“That was before,” she said, strumming her long nails along the desk, “He knew too much.”
Are you excited to read more next month?
There are a ton of secrets revealed in "Allegiance" - I like surprises - and it all leads up to "Deprogrammed". So while "Program 12" wasn't a mandatory read, "Allegiance" will be a mandatory read.
Back to writing I go!
