Humanity has split into two halves: First World, the floating plate above that covers ⅓ of the
planet built with futuristic technology and home to 56 million First Class citizens, and Second
World, the Original Earth below running to ruin from war, famine, and poverty.
Recruited by Second World from jail, Jukebox is taken to their Base, discovering files with
dragons, mythical shape shifting snakes from China—even the ghost from his past. And when
the dragons actually show up, threatening to destroy humanity within three days, it doesn’t make
it any better. Not even the androids and cyborgs that are sent to kill him on an everyday basis.
Maybe it’s because they’re looking for his dad that holds all the original secrets and truths
behind their world’s destruction, like him.
And when a comet is learned to hit both worlds soon, Jukebox is faced with the decision of
fighting for his race or himself when the meteor is established to contain a power that could
grant mankind renewed life, or instantaneous death— his power. Both worlds are at a clash to
get to him and the comet once learning Jukebox can stop it—on the price of dying, deeming this
battle as Second War—Riley’s War. And Jukebox doesn’t even want to stop it.
RILEY’S WAR: PHASE 1 is a powerful explosive sci-fi YA fantasy and action/adventure
complete at 38,600 words with undeniable series potential that would appeal to fans of diverse
POC with LGBTQIA+ main characters and supporting cast.
