Some say we’re special, and that’s why we’re kept in seclusion. Beyond those walls evil lurks and innocent prey would be lost in minutes. Gone. Destroyed. Forgotten.
Others say the opposite: we’re locked away because there’s something wrong with us. If we roamed the outside world, we might taint the beautiful ones. A species so pure, that to merely be in their presence is a gift.
As for my beliefs…I’m not sure.
But I do know one thing: neither of those reasons explains why it is that they come for us only after we’ve passed the age of sixteen. Whether we want to go or not, we’re taken through those iron gates. Escorted away from the only home we’ve ever known, escorted to our destiny—whatever that destiny may be—never to be seen again.

our thoughts

The Beautiful Ones really sets the stage for this new series. If the quality of this prequel is any indication as to what is to come I am anxious to continue with the series. The world that this built up in this debut was one of extensive detail and creativity. The mystery of this world was closely concealed until the very end of the short story. At first glance the reader is just as mystified about the unfamiliar objects of this world. As the character studies each item in depth it is interesting to put them together, and finally understand what it is that the they have discovered. This is going to be a powerfully detailed and monumental adventure that looks to be created by a highly talented author. I look forward to checking out the first novel that is actually due this Spring. Be on the lookout for more details on The BookWhisperer.
