When the world ends, is survival enough?
After the End War, a small group of survivors struggle to rebuild civilization inside the Crag, humanity’s last refuge. Sam, a seventeen-year-old hunter, was left outside the mouth of the cave as an infant, and is believed by some to be the Sky Child, the one foretold to bring peace and prosperity to the Crag.
When the leader of the hunters is killed by a dragon, Sam is thrust into a position of leadership. Sam’s only goal is survival, and being in a position of power at such a young age draws the murderous ire of others. Sam must also survive the deadly Trials to prove worthy enough to lead the hunters, despite resisting the role.
Sam must now face Chaff, a tyrant who hides the secret of the harvest in order to maintain control of the Crag. Cruel, manipulative and deadly, Chaff takes something from Sam he can never give back. Sam’s need for revenge could bring about the death of everyone in the Crag, which goes against everything the Sky Child stands for.
Will Sam make the tough choice, or bring about the end of their people?
Sky Child is the breakthrough YA Dystopian novel from acclaimed author T. M. Brenner, and the first book in the Sky Child trilogy. What sets Sky Child apart from other novels is that the gender of the main character, Sam, is never revealed.
About the Author:
My renewed passion for writing started back in 2009. I decided I wanted to write a screenplay, one that I could use to make a movie with friends and family. I’m a huge movie buff, and I’ve always wanted to act in and direct my own movie. So I started writing the screenplay ‘N01R’. The title is still one that I think worthy of being made into a movie, but the original screenplay probably is not. Maybe someday I will revisit it. After finishing ‘N01R’, I felt the urge to write another screenplay. This one I would call ‘The Appearance of Evil.’ It is a very dark tale, based on the idea that a famous actor hires a company to fake his death. Years ago I read some sage advice: it’s much easier to publish a book and make money than it is to sell a screenplay, so I turned to writing novels. My first novel, LUMINARIES, was well received. I also wrote a screenplay based on LUMINARIES. My next two books I wrote under a pen name. They are the first two books in a trilogy. I’ve chosen not to include the information about those books for a multitude of reasons; personal and professional. My newest, SKY CHILD, is a YA Dystopian with a huge twist. The main character’s gender is never revealed. I’m hoping this story resonates with readers from every walk of life, and maybe opens some eyes. When I’m not spending time writing, shooting pool, or enjoying the finer things in life, I’m spending time with my amazing fiancee, Nicole. Without her love, feedback and support, I wouldn’t be able to write the stories I’m writing with such enjoyment.
