Ghosts of Koa - Volume 1

Colby R Rice

Book Overview: 

For over one hundred years the Civic Order and the Alchemic Order have held a shaky truce, peppered by violence and mistrust. But when Koa, a Civilian-born insurgency, bombs an Alchemist summit, the truce is shattered. Now, Koa is rising. War is coming. And all sixteen-year-old Zeika Anon can do is keep moving as she watches the lords of alchemy slowly overtake her home.

But when clashes between Koa and the Alchemic Order put a final, deadly squeeze on the remaining Civilian territories, Zeika finds herself in the crosshairs of fate. She must walk the line between survival and rebellion against the Alchemists. On one side of the line awaits death. On the other, the betrayal of her civilization, her loyalties, and herself.

The first volume in THE BOOKS OF EZEKIEL series, GHOSTS OF KOA is a fast-paced, post-apocalyptic survival tale, set in the streets of a dying city that has been crushed by alchemic law. Layered with the elements of gritty crime drama, dark urban fantasy, hard sci-fi, and horror, GHOSTS OF KOA is a wild ride to the end of a young girl’s sanity as she struggles with an impossible choice: to keep one step ahead of a war… or to be consumed by it.

Recommended for fans of Stephen King, Clive Barker, Dean Koontz, Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Divergent by Veronica Roth.

"Pimp?" He laughed and shook his head. "That's a filthy thing you're callin' me, baby. Me, I'm more of a manager... a manager of lovely ladies of leisure."

"Whatever. Manage your dick out of our business, and we'll do just fine." She threw the bag  down at his feet, its contents clanging together. "Everything you asked for. Where's my money?"

"A business woman. I like that." Davy reached into his pockets, produced a thick roll of green, and started counting it. "You know, you ain't always gotta bring the bag, girly. You got some zippers of your own to sell that I'd pay real nice for. Others too—"

"Keep counting, David. Four hundred, clean."

"Ah, come on, I count dough in my sleep. We can talk."

"We have nothing to discuss except the exchange."

"Oh, we got plenty to discuss! What? Don't act like yo. . . Read More

I didn't see what this book was going to be about, so when I started reading it I was very surprised to find that is wasn't about any normal sci-fi topics. The theme of this book was very unique and I loved it.

An excellent first book by author Colby Rice. A mixture of dystopian fantasy with a dash of detective novel. Rice builds a multi-faceted future society and draws her characters from all levels of it.

A century of an uneasy peace has held between two factions, Civilians and Azures, but that truce is about to come to an end.
