The​ ​year’s​ ​2027.

Humanity​ ​has​ ​split​ ​into​ ​two​ ​halves:​ ​First​ ​World,​ ​the​ ​floating​ ​plate​ ​above​ ​that​ ​covers​ ​⅓​ ​of​ ​the planet​ ​built​ ​with​ ​futuristic​ ​technology​ ​and​ ​home​ ​to​ ​56​ ​million​ ​First​ ​Class​ ​citizens,​and Second World,​ ​the​ ​Original​ ​Earth​ ​below​ ​running​ ​to​ ​ruin​ ​from​ ​war,​ ​famine,​ ​and​ ​poverty.

Recruited​ ​by​ ​Second​ ​World​ ​from​ ​jail,​ ​Jukebox​ ​is​ ​taken​ ​to​ ​their​ ​Base,​ ​discovering​ ​files​ ​with dragons,​ ​mythical​ ​shape​ ​shifting​ ​snakes​ ​from​ ​China—even​ ​the​ ​ghost​ ​from​ ​his​ ​past.​ ​And​ ​when the​ ​dragons​ ​actually​ ​show​ ​up,​ ​threatening​ ​to​ ​destroy​ ​humanity​ ​within​ ​three​ ​days,​ ​it​ ​doesn’t​ ​make it​ ​any​ ​better.​ ​Not​ ​even​ ​the​ ​androids​ ​and​ ​cyborgs​ ​that​ ​are​ ​sent​ ​to​ ​kill​ ​him​ ​on​ ​an​ everyday​ ​basis. Maybe​ ​it’s​ ​because​ ​they’re​ ​looking​ ​for​ ​his​ ​dad​ ​that​ ​holds​ ​all​ ​the​ ​original​ ​secrets​ ​and​ ​truths behind​ ​their​ ​world’s​ ​destruction,​ ​like​ ​him.

And​ ​when​ ​a​ ​comet​ ​is​ ​learned​ ​to​ ​hit​ ​both​ ​worlds​ ​soon,​ ​Jukebox​ ​is​ ​faced​ ​with​ ​the​ ​decision​ ​of fighting​ ​for​ ​his​ ​race​ ​or​ ​himself​ ​when​ ​the​ ​meteor​ ​is​ ​established​ ​to​ ​contain​ ​a​ ​power that​ ​could grant​ ​mankind​ ​renewed​ ​life,​ ​or​ ​instantaneous​ ​death—​ ​​his​​ ​power.​ ​Both​ ​worlds​ ​are​ ​at​ ​a​ ​clash​ ​to get​ ​to​ ​him​ ​and​ ​the​ ​comet​ ​once​ ​learning​ ​Jukebox​ ​can​ ​stop​ ​it—on​ ​the​ ​price​ ​of​ ​​dying,​​ ​deeming​ ​this battle​ ​as​ ​Second​ ​War—Riley’s​ ​War.​ ​And​ ​Jukebox​ ​doesn’t​ ​even​ ​want​ ​to​ ​​stop​​ ​it.

RILEY’S​ ​WAR:​ ​PHASE​ ​1​ ​is​ ​a​ ​powerful​ ​explosive​ ​sci-fi​ ​YA​ ​fantasy​ ​and​ ​action/adventure complete​ ​at​ ​38,600​ ​words​ ​with​ ​undeniable​ ​series​ ​potential​ ​that​ ​would​ ​appeal​ ​to​ ​fans​ ​of​ ​diverse POC with​ LGBTQIA+ ​main​ ​characters​ ​and​ ​supporting​ ​cast.


Excerpt #1
I smirked. Obsidian froze, then began to grin, letting me go. “I like your style.” he leered. “You’re a nice kid. Nice hair. What’s your name?”




“Huh.” He nodded his head a couple times, placing his hand underneath his chin. He whipped his head around to face me. “Seriously?”

“Seriously.” I answered.
