The Wasp’s Nest: Book I of the Wasp Chronicles

Two 21st-Century Teenagers Discover Their Strengths in an Apocalyptic Future…

Chris has never thought of herself as anyone special—she’s a band geek, and she’s happily on her way to a high school marching band contest when suddenly she finds herself standing in the middle of an unknown desert. Is this a hallucination from the bottle of tequila that the teenagers enjoyed the night before? If it’s a hangover, it’s worse than anything she could have imagined…her band uniform causes her to be mistaken for an enemy soldier. Chris is rescued by a rag-tag band of resourceful tribal people who call themselves Taders. She is taken to their home, Tojoba, where she is told that she has been “rifted”—pulled through time into the future. She finds that several other band members were dragged through as well, including her best friend, Bruce. But rescue by the Taders comes at a price: the teenagers must be accepted by mentors, and submit to training. Chris is accepted, but Bruce is rejected back to the wilderness. Both of them will find strengths they never dreamed they had, as they gradually uncover the tangled and shocking mysteries of humanity’s future…where each of them is destined to play a key role on opposite sides of an epic conflict. Richly imagined, beautifully characterized, and deeply engaging, The Wasp’s Nest will leave you eager for the upcoming second book in The Wasp Chronicles.

2018 BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD – FINALIST
EVVY AWARD WINNER – 1st PLACE

Chris, now a Trax, was what the West Sand Command called “a greeny.” Her “Before Time,” that time before she had been rifted, had been from a distant past, and perhaps even a different timeline. Who could say . . .? But after some three years of training and a return to the very group who had rescued her from the desert, her “Now Time” circle was complete . . . with one adjustment, she was now also “Det Arju′” She carried with her a mysterious pendant that she had been ordered to present to Lon, the Tagos of the Choe, an assignment that, as of yet, no West Sand Commander was aware. Bruce, Chris’s friend, and fellow “Before Time” band geek, was rejected by the Trax. While Chris trained, his path hooked him to the side of the Taden’s greatest nemesis, the Captain. Now as his lieutenant, he must help the Captain save his command by aiding him in the capture of Ponopin, a genius Tader entrepreneur, and the Brigade’s greatest thorn. But as fate would have it, neither mission is as easy as it sounds, the tangle of circumstances sending Chris and Bruce on a collision course with each other. Richly imagined, beautifully characterized, and deeply engaging, Wasp on the Wind will leave you clamoring for the upcoming third book in The Wasp Chronicles series.
