GR Induced
These free short stories have been the offspring of a little challenge I called "Goodreads Friends with benefits." Goodreads is a website which allows readers to share their passion for books. This series is an attempt at highlighting how reviewers and authors are really in the same team, and that they can benefit from each other. I expect the more stories will blossom in this series, the better my writing will be, because I know I'm not publishing masterpieces as of yet.
Trojan Wolf
Trojan Wolf follows the story of four elite soldiers of the American Empire, in the 22nd century. Daya is the warrior of the group, a woman with a sense of duty from the slums of LA. Diego is a nobleman whose power is only matched by his arrogance. Jack is the team's technician, or his enchanter if you would, a timid yet skillful ally. Every team needs a leader, and this one as Sergeant Major Melany Thompson to follow in the wilderness, a mentor as well as a survivalist.
