Author: Kelly Wyre, AF Henley

Release Date: 01/11/2017

Blurb:

In the wake of several near-cataclysmic events, humanity created the Cure, a DNA-altering antidote to death by disease and old age. But all cures come with side effects: a small percentage of the population develops a wide range of powers, some of which are lethal to others, and some which are lethal to the wielder.

These people are called the Estranged, hunted and shunned, safe only on the Island of Exile. It is here that Kaeva and Eddie meet—and where they set a prophecy in motion, quite possibly sealing their own demise, and even the end of Exile.

Genre: Gay, Urban Fantasy

Notes: contains some explicit content and includes thoughts and discussions of past and potential suicide

Kelly Wyre: dances around

AF Henley: shakes head, laughing

 

The Character Discussion

KW: Okay. Let’s talk Transformers.

AFH: Uhhhhh…. sure?

KW: No, but really, a cool side note: one of the best things about writing in a futuristic setting is being able to talk about the 20th and 21st centuries like they were a long time ago. And since one of our main men – Eddie – is a serious 20th century buff, he immediately associated our spotlight character with those million-year-old robots from outer space.

AFH: Oh yeah. You mean Mecken!

KW: I do, yeah! Cute kid. Little… precocious… But fearless. Definitely fearless.

AFH: Man. He reminds me of someone. eyes you

KW: whistles the Transformers theme song

 

The Teaser

“Heyya hoyya!” Mecken called.

“What do you want?” Kaeva growled, his voice rough. He couldn’t remember the last time he talked. Probably when he was last in the City, which had been two months ago to place an order.

Mecken paused a few feet away from Kaeva’s front porch. A rush of air struck Kaeva, disrupted by Mecken’s speed. Mecken was a Swift, which made Kaeva wonder about the ATV. Mecken didn’t exactly need it to cross land in a hurry.

Mecken bent over, hands on his knees, catching his breath. “You,” he said. “I need you to come with me.”

That explained the ATV. Kaeva didn’t have to think about it. “No.”

“You have to,” Mecken insisted.

“Oh really?” Kaeva asked.

“Don’t be an asshole. I’ve already had to go to a meeting with the bosses and had to pry that thing out of Collins’s hands.” Mecken jerked his head toward the ATV. Collins was in charge of vehicle storage and maintenance on the island. Mecken was one of the island’s many messengers. Mecken was the only one Kaeva ever saw. None of the others would risk being close to him, and nobody would dare to bring an electric anything near Kaeva unless circumstances were dire. Kaeva eyed the vehicle and then Mecken.

“Maybe if you didn’t wreck them so often, Collins wouldn’t mind you driving them,” Kaeva pointed out to distract himself from the ominous feeling gathering in his guts.

“He can always fix ’em. And I help. I know my way around a tech kit.” Mecken shrugged and grinned at Kaeva. “And you should talk about breakin’ shit.”

Kaeva turned to go inside.

“Wait!” Mecken ran forward but stopped at the bottom step. Mecken was young but far from stupid. Kaeva silently approved.

“You have to come with me,” Mecken pleaded.

“I repeat: no.”

“Boss’s orders!”

“Which boss?” Kaeva asked skeptically. No way was he venturing into the City for Collins or Aero, the man over the Island Messenger Service.

Mecken’s expression grew serious. “The bosses. Both of them want to see you right away.”

  1. Looks like Kaeva’s in trouble.

    Ruminating about Kaeva’s attitude, I feel like we’re similar in some ways. Before my friends became my friends (are you guys following? LOL!), they thought that I’m a grumpy bear. LOL! Okay! Not a bear but a grumpy one. 😀 Only to realize that I’m actually friendly & can laugh forever once I forget to take medicine. I’m not actually crazy & there’s no medicine too. That’s just my pigment of imagination.

    Back to the story, we were introduced to yet another younger character named Mecken. I wonder who of the minor characters will play a rather large part in the story.

    Thanks for coming by to Prism Book Alliance, Kel & Henley! <3

    • I’ve found that grumpy bears are usually not really all that grumpy when you get to know them. (But seriously, don’t give up on any meds if you need them. :D)

      As for the part the minor characters play, I like to think it was two-fold. One, they made it easier to describe the ailments/issues that the people of this island are dealing in real time, and two, they helped solidify the feeling of community that would be so vital to their existence.

      Thank you for following along with the tour. I’m glad to hear you’ve having a good time! 😀

  2. I really like the term “Swift” over “Speedster.” Very nice choice. I mean sure, here you’re talking about a genetic mutation similar to the original Jay Garick vs Speed Force users like Barry Allen and Wally West. *anime geek, five finger glasses adjustment*

    But still, Swift just really seems to not only match the world you’re introducing us to, but I just really prefer it. It seems like a term that would be built or adopted over time vs techno-geeky on fly sounding.

    I also like the peek into Kaeva with such side comments as crazy to bring anything electronic near him. This either has to do with his ability, or his temperament toward electronics, or both. xD I’d assume both, but if they brought it that means he can ride it, so more his temperament and how he would use his ability if pushed.

    Also Mecken’s personal belief that “it’s his job to fix it, so I’ll break them as often as I want” is both entertaining and frustrating. I dislike it when people break things under the assumption that it’s okay, I can magically fix anything.

    Very fun character introductions. I look forward to what else you have in store for us as the tour goes on.

    • Well, in Mecken’s defence, he’s only 11. Or 12. I can’t quite remember which. Kelly, to great dismay and frequent violations of my head space with tiny flailing fists of fury, is the keeper of all things factual for Exile. Kelly didn’t necessarily volunteer for that, of course, it just “worked out that way.” *grins*

      I’m glad you’re enjoying! Thank you! Good luck with the giveaway. <3

    • I am, apparently, the only one of the bunch who didn’t watch Transformers. Of course, I think I have at least a decade on both of you, so I guess that’s not surprising. 😉

      Always a pleasure to have you on the tour, H.B.! Thanks for stopping in and sharing! Good luck with the giveaway. <3

  3. Thanks for the teaser. It sounds like a fascinating world even if a bit dangerous. Maybe more than a bit dangerous but that’s what makes it exciting, right?

    • Love me a bit of danger… actually, that’s an outright lie. I don’t even like thunderstorms. XD

      Although, when it comes to Exile, I like to think that the camaraderie and community that they’ve got going definitely makes up for the danger that each one of them face. (Every day. From almost every one. lol) I guess if they’re all a bit dangerous, danger becomes if not mundane then at least manageable.

      Thank you very much for stopping in to comment! Best of luck with the giveaway. <3
