Racing against the clock through the desert, facing harrowing odds and dire consequences should they fail, they discover that the terrorists aren’t always the ones to fear… and may not be their true enemy. Set in the ruins of New York, WAR MACHINE is a fast-paced adventure thriller filled with betrayal, suspense, and alliances that quickly turn into deadly enemies. Destiny in the Shadows hauntingly echoes the state of the world today and the fate of the heroes determined to save it. Praise for Destiny in the Shadows – ” Absolutely WAR MACHINE is a well written novel that one cannot stop reading until the very last page – and then thirsts for a sequel! I especially love how the characters play off of and interact with one another throughout, especially given their roles on a journey that could prove to be a death mission in a dark world of deception. There is a balanced essence of danger, compassion, romance, and even humor, all elements not easy to successfully combine. Maggie Lynn Heron-Heidel nailed it with all the skills of a seasoned writer. I cannot wait to read more from this budding, brilliant author! ” – A Goodreads Review *Ten percent of all proceeds from this novel go toward helping child and sex trafficking victims in Cambodia through Agape International Missions. – Q&A with Science Fiction and Fantasy Author Maggie Lynn Heron-Heidel – What inspired you to write this novel? -This series you mean? Well, all one has to do is look around at our current times. Looking at the government of my fictional city Nacin, it very much echoes the governments of the world today. We see deadly consequences of corruption and greed that only seem to affect the average citizen, while the politicians sit in their golden palaces plotting their next move. It leaves our soldiers and policemen between them and the public, facing the scrutiny that should fall on those in power. Another layer of inspiration comes from human trafficking. It is a worldwide problem that I feel needs attention. Slaves and sex trafficking are definitely not a thing of the past. It is a daily occurrence that is virtually ignored by the general populace. Where can one learn more about the human trafficking industry and how to help victims affected by it? – There a number of charities such as Agape International Missions who specialize in helping victims with recovery and combating the industry. In fact, ten percent of all proceeds from this book go to their ministry to combat human trafficking. What age group would you feel would enjoy this series best? – Due to the violence and mature themes, I would say a minimum of ninth grade would be best. After that, I believe it is inclusive of all ages. Amazon categories: Dystopian Science Fiction Military Thriller Post Apocalyptic Fantasy Adventure Clean Romance
