RED LIGHT SYSTEM
1st book in an adult Sci-fi/fantasy, disaster movie mashup. GOT meets Armageddon.
A long time ago, in a universe far far away… There is a place where life is cheap, carnal pleasures cheaper, and war a way of life. In The Red Light System there are two habitable planets: Theia, a monarchy, and Harayma, a democracy, orbiting a red giant. After generations of fighting between the old world and the new– the two planets have finally been able to usher in a time of peace… But that peace is upended when a mysterious object—small in size but massive in gravity–passes close to Theia, causing an earthquake unprecedented in its magnitude, the ripple effects throwing the entire system into chaos.
What is this object? Where did it come from?
The answer to those questions, and more, lie in our character’s journeys.
Journeys that see a teenage girl witness her family’s abduction by mysterious otherworldly beings—only to be accused of killing them herself; A journalist trying to clear the teen’s name, and get to the bottom of a series of mysterious disappearances involving unknown aircraft and strange lights in the sky; a washed up duelist coming out of retirement for one last fight to the death in order to reconnect with his estranged daughter; a rebellious princess’s affair with a small time drug dealer, becomes a deadly addiction for both; and a narcissistic heir to the throne, plotting to kill her father, is beset by a supernatural visitor…
Amid lies, betrayal and lust—fighting against venom toothed tigers, jungle dwelling terrorists, and political assassins–our characters struggle for survival in…
The Red Light System.
A system on a collision course with destiny.
