Unraveling myths is messy … but the lies have to die for humanity to survive.

Twin spirits born a decade apart, Velia and Virgil are bored by their trivial teenage lives, sensing they’re meant for so much more. 

Velia's mother wants to wrap her in a straightjacket of protective love, while Virgil's father wants him to follow in his violent footsteps. 

But the arrival of a mythical video game and the forced exile to a wilderness camp for troubled kids will turn their worlds upside down. Neither teen knows this is a test to see if they’re ready to fulfill their destiny and join humanity’s secret alien ally in preventing the end of the universe. 

For these siblings of synchronicity to succeed, they'll have to capture, contain, or kill a high-value target of an opposing alien force bent on conquering Earth.

Desperate for a life on their own terms, Velia and Virgil must complete brutal trials to learn why they're uniquely capable of saving all life in the universe.

Will their families hold them back? And what about the sadistic one-eyed man determined to stand in their way? If he doesn't kill them, the truth will.

Their lives have been a lie …, but they're about to learn that the truth is even more dangerous.

Coverted is an introductory novella to the Subsumption Series, a story about humanity's pivotal position between two warring alien empires. If you enjoyed Ready Player One, Stranger Things, and Jean-Claude Van Damme movies, then Coverted and the Subsumption Series is for you!
