THE WALKER SERIES
From the age of three, all I’ve known is Stonewell Manor, home of the prominent political figure, Josiah Stonewell. Josiah and I were once close companions, but as we grew older, our stations in life demanded distance.
You see, I am a Walker: a survivor of a deadly virus that wiped away a large portion of the population, and my immunity allows me to be fortunate enough to serve the prestigiousStonewell household. I am a cook, servant, and general housemaid, but my life is content.
My every waking moment is lived for Josiah, his praise, his sighs, his nearness. I don’t know the exact moment I fell in love with him, but I do know that if anyone found out about our lingering stares, it would end his political career.
When Cyler Black and his beautiful sister come to visitStonewell Manor, I find myself squinting down the barrel of heartbreak. Cyler offers me a chance at freedom in a new Providence where he and six other male leaders live. Choices will be made, goodbyes will be said, and the world I thought I knew, changes. But the biggest choice of all is deciding on what my heart wants.
It’s been a month since Josiah took what was left of our dying relationship and extinguished its embers. Making my home in Dormas, I’m finding my true self. I’ve settled into my job at the Bakery, and when I’m not avoiding Jules, I’m stealing moments with Maverick, Cyler, Jacob, Huxley, Patrick, and Kemper.
I don’t fool myself into thinking that my desire for all of them is something I’m worthy of, but every time I gladly settle for just friendship, they pull me closer, making me want them all the more.
Even though life in Dormas brings its sweetness, danger always seems a heartbeat away. Trade deals, alliances, and unexpected friends are keeping us busy. If it’s not the latest increase in X infected Scavengers, it's Emperor Lackley’s unpredictable machinations to unleash an evil that will threaten not just the people I love, but us all.
One thing I know for sure—I won’t let that happen without a fight.
I’m not seen as a friend or even a sister. I’m just forgotten. Lost. Invisible.
Tallis challenges me. Changes me. He crawls into my soul and lights me up for the world to see. Before, I was nothing more than a protected spoiled girl stuck in the past. But I’m not so little anymore. And I don’t need the protection of my brothers, because this time, I’m the hero.
I am Jules Black, and this is my story.
I’ve been stripped of all my freedoms on the beautiful island of Ethros, where cruelty is the foundation of our temporary home.
Cyler, Maverick, Patrick, Huxley, Jacob, & Kemper are determined to find ways around their rules. We fight for our moments together, even when the people of Ethros try to tear us apart.
There’s in Ethros. Although I’m here against my will, I’m thankful that the stress of our situation has forced us to dive into the depths of our feelings for one another.pain
And despite an uncertain future, I want to enjoy whatever time we have left.
Consequences and prejudice be damned.
I'll build an army to take back what is mine.
Revenge may harden the heart, but I'll gladly suffer the consequences.
I've lost my family, my best friend, and the men I love. The little Walker girl from Galla is dead. Now, all that's left of her is a girl willing to risk it all.
They call me Queen of the Walkers.
The end is here.
Dormas is gone. The empire is in ruin, and I'm struggling to come to terms with the girl I've become.
My men are the only bright spot left in the empire. We’re stronger than ever. Determined to find Payne and the cure, we comb through all the destruction, searching for him while trying to evade infected Walkers.
I just hope we can find him in time. Death is breathing down our necks, and I'm starting to worry that my men and I won't survive the end of the empire.
The end is here. And so is a beautiful beginning.
