CATACLYSM RISING is the story of Percy Deadmon, a girl with nothing left in the world but a robotic suit of armor. The idea of Cataclysm rising came from the combination of my love of mecha and wanting to see stronger female leads in the YA genre.The first draft is complete and has already been through several rounds of edits.
The story takes places in the world of Pangaea, where machinery and magic coexist. Percy, wither her robotic suit Hades, joins forces with a boy named Ceryx, and together they’ll try to save the world from a zealous environmentalist.
Cataclysm Rising addresses issues of racism, environmental protection, fracking, and drug abuse. It has a diverse cast of POCs and sexual orientations.
