The Wildblood Series
A Post-Apocalyptic Action Adventure
No one remembers what started the war, the big one. Civilization stopped, and what came next was fueled by rage and fear.
Twenty years on, a tiny refuge, a place called The Vista, may be one of the last vestiges of humanity. Isolated, guarded, and hiding a dark secret, the people have survived World War Last, and they are content with that. Their children, however, are not. The search for others will send them out into a world they know nothing about, where the line between enemy and ally is blurred.

Alrighty then. Getting towards the end of this story arc, things are heating up. This is an encounter between Shannon and Harlan, who really need to be allies, but have many issues to overcome first. He knows how different the Altered are; she doesn’t trust anyone beyond her teammates.

“You tell people Kaden is your son, and they naturally think, biological,” she started off thoughtfully. “That’s what you want because people don’t know the semantics of the Altered, hell, I don’t. You let them think it, though, they don’t associate one with the other; the Altered didn’t come from families, they came from corporate laboratories. As long as they believe that, you think you can worry a little less about him.”
“Easy enough to figure out.”
“When you meet new people, the first thought in your mind isn’t one of trust; usually, you wonder if you’ll have to kill any of them, and then you single out who is in charge. Just in case.”
Harlan didn’t have an immediate answer, she’d read him, like Kaden warned she could. One of his darkest fears, too, and that worried him – their first encounter beyond The Vista had been with Rafe, and it warped their views.
