Y/A CORNER: CHILDREN OF PARANOIA!

Y/A CORNER: CHILDREN OF PARANOIA!

TREVOR SHANE

SEPTEMBER 2011

ALL WARS HAVE RULES

Rule Number One: No killing innocent bystanders.

Rule Number Two: No killing anyone under the age of eighteen.

Break the rules, become the target . . .

In a world where anyone you meet may be your mortal enemy, the first to kill is the last to survive.


Since the age of eighteen, Joseph has been assassinating people on behalf of a cause that he believes in but doesn’t fully understand. The War is ageless, hidden in the shadows, governed by a rigid set of rules, and fought by two distinct sides—one good, one evil. The only unknown is which side is which. Soldiers in the War hide in plain sight, their deeds disguised as accidents or random acts of violence amidst an unsuspecting population ignorant of the brutality that is always inches away.

Killing people is the only life Joseph has ever known, and he’s one of the best at it. But when a job goes wrong and he’s sent away to complete a punishingly dangerous assignment, Joseph meets a girl named Maria, and for the first time in his life his single-minded, bloody purpose fades away.
Before Maria, Joseph’s only responsibility was dealing death to the anonymous targets fingered by his superiors.

Now he must run from the people who have fought by his side to save what he loves most in this world. He must renounce the rules and the black-and-white comfort of good versus evil and take responsibility for a life other than his own. As Children of Paranoia reaches its heart-in-throat climax, Joseph will learn that only one rule remains immutable: the first to kill is the last to survive.
