The world is on fire. From the ashes like a phoenix rises a new America, one that will save it all. Under one condition; absolute and complete surrender. The world complies without question. Those who don’t are destroyed. It is in this world, John is born. His very name is treason. If the New America, now known to everyone as the State, knew what John was, they’d kill him, but instead they give him a gift.
John has a lot of potential (especially for someone so young) in that he sees the flaws in this society. He wants to be like George Washington and knows a lot about the manner in which a government should be run... Highly recommended. ~Amazon Review
My mother is a superior cook and gardener, she can make anything grow and anything taste good, she is a genius. Because of that, I had better nutrition and so this gave me a leg up when it came to endurance. It has been many years since the State has taken over and very few people remember even how to grow their own gardens and what nutritional value means, that’s obvious based on what the school now defines as lunch. Then there is the edge that my father gave me, being a mixed martial artist. His father had been a second degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do and had created his own unique style called Reality Based Street Fighting. He had been relentless in training my father and, in turn, my father had been relentless in training me. At first, I thought this to be child abuse but as I grew older and my skills became better, I realized that this training may save my life one day.
