Xavier gets kidnapped at the age of 17. Two years later his psyche splits after being beaten and mal-nourished. He is taken into the psychiatric hospital after his psychotic break. He now lives in the isolation ward. It’s not too bad and he makes quick friends with everyone else living in the ward but that quickly changes when he is brutally murdered by those same inmates.

Tyler is brought in after burning down a seemingly random house out in the country side. He refuses to take responsibility for his actions and he loves living on the ward. He loves the power that he now holds over the other inmates, now that he has erased Xavier’s name from the wall.

Xavier needs to fight back, this has gone too far. Will he be able to get over his fear or will he ultimately give in to Tyler’s crazy power?


The idea for this novel came from watching the movie The Ward. It’s probably one of my favorite psychological thriller movies. I’ve been working on it for about 3 or 4 months and rewritten it with additional parts about three times.

I’m a sophomore in college and I love to write. I’ve been writing since before I can remember. I wrote my first novel in my freshman year of high school and now I have 12 WIPs and two that I think are ready for this next step. I write mostly fantasy and dystopian novels and I’ll probably be uploading more of them here as they slowly get finished.

Let me know what you think of the chapters as I post. I probably won’t be putting anything else up until a few days into November because I am rewriting this for NaNoWriMo.
