———— The Fear Trilogy  ————

Fear Zero

FearZero_2Cover.pngMatt McKenzie, a ten-year old boy, is thrown in prison for murdering his mother. He must survive sadistic guards, violent prisoners, and loneliness. He reacts to violence with violence; he becomes a feared inmate, and he thinks he has made two friends. However, one friend, Monster, is unpredictable and violent. The other, Doro Ferrell, is psychotically shy, so much so that he only writes his end of conversations. When the prisoners turn 16 years old, the prison owners, the Conglomerate that controls everything in the world, must release them. Can McKenzie, Monster, and Ferrell survive with no skills, no Conglomerate number, no jobs, and no places to live? Can they survive each other?

Fear Zero is the prolog to The Fear Trilogy which traces the life of McKenzie from a violent upbringing to an imprisoned ten-year-old to the real world where aliens are fighting against the Conglomerate. Can the aliens win? Or is it a suicide war that involves everyone on the planet, including McKenzie, Monster, and Ferrell?

The Fear Trilogy is coming soon! Fear Itself, Fear the Dead, and The Sound of Fear.
