Humanity is threatened by it’s own monstrous children in this controversial fantasy novel from the New York Times–bestselling author.

Killing children is an ugly business, but the alternative is so much uglier. Abner Slate just watched his five-year-old daughter, Olive, kill his wife and son. Olive is a sopath. Born without souls, sopaths are children who will lie, cheat, rape, and murder to get what they want. There’s one in every family these days, destroying America’s heartland from within.
 
After murdering his daughter in self-defense, Abner is taken in by a secret network of sopath victims called Pariah. Through Pariah, he meets other sopath victims who band together to form a temporary nuclear family. But the sopath threat is getting worse, and soon their quaint little neighborhood is overrun by murderous, drug-running children.
 
Now, on a mission for Pariah, Abner and his makeshift family must travel across the country to a mysterious town that contains a secret powerful enough to stop the sopath crisis. Instead, they find the most seductive and ruthless sopath of all. Her name is Autopsy, and she would like to add Abner to her slave collection. The old morality is dead. Now the sopaths will stalk the Earth.

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.

"Once again, the Author delivers a fantastic read!!! This is a MUST read!!!" Romorror Fan Girl

"The different species or classes are something utterly new and remarkable to me in the genre." Ana Silva

Interview with the Author

Q. – So, why should someone read the Lake of Sins series?

Well, because it's great (smiles). No, seriously. 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 horror 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 Conguise 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. If you like Hunger Games, Lord of the Ringsand The Island of Dr. Moreau, then you'll enjoy these tales.

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.
