Before the Vela invasion, Rhyan’s biggest concern was getting through a day of school. But when she is thrust into the madness of a kill-or-be-killed world, her true strength emerges and a deadly warrior is unleashed. Stumbling through the new morals of a post-apocalyptic world, she learns to depend only on herself. As she gets closer to discovering what the aliens actually want, her lethality becomes unmatched, and she soon learns the extent she’ll go to in order to survive.

I did write a scene in which Rhyan finds a toothbrush and ponders how the little things of yesterday had become the luxuries of today. It was inspired by stories of World War 2, when Holocaust victims would trade things like toothbrushes on the black market. I hoped it would inspire readers to consider how much we have in our lives, but in the end, it didn’t really progress the story, so it was wiped.
