Emerge: The Awakening: (Immortals of Indriell Book 1)
byMelissa A. Craven
Allie has always thought of herself as a loner—until she moves to a new town and finds herself caught up in a dangerous world of immortality and power she never knew existed.
Surrounded by strange new friends and even stranger circumstances, the dark void of her past casts an ominous cloud over Allie’s new life. Sparks fly between Allie and Aidan as she finds herself drawn to him and his friends in ways she can’t explain.
As Allie approaches her sixteenth birthday, a latent Immortal power awakens deep inside her. She must learn to adapt to her power before it overwhelms her. But she’s sixteen years behind her peers, and as one of the most powerful Immortals of her generation, she has precious little time to catch up.
As her first gifts begin to emerge, Allie finds her footing, but she still feels like the normal mortal girl she always thought she was.
But there is nothing normal about Allie Carmichael.
Allie’s past harbors dark secrets she can't even fathom. Secrets that could not only change her life, but the lives of everyone around her.
Gen OneKindle Edition
Generations after robots conquered Earth, the remaining population survives in the ash of their defeat. Within their walls in Authority City, bots test and develop super soldiers. Rumors of horrible experiments are enough to keep humans in line. At least, most humans.
Eighteen-year-old Delilah O’Connor scavenges the ruins with her friend Zane, and Gen, a generation one bot they repaired off the grid. Gen’s curiosity gives Delilah hope for the future, but not enough hope to go against the Authority. She finds Zane’s dreams of a human resistance pointless, and it’s enough to keep their on-and-off relationship mostly off.
When they discover two dead guards in a shady trading stop known as the Banks, everything changes. Framed for the murders and pursued by Authority bots, Zane takes Delilah to the only safe space he knows—the headquarters for the Human Coalition. Even there Zane isn’t safe. When he’s captured, Delilah and Gen must join an unlikely alliance of bot and human to go in to Authority City and save him before he becomes another casualty. Things in Authority City aren’t as they seem, they’re worse. Delilah might lose more than her friend within its walls.
