The Black Birds: Book One (The Black Birds Saga 1)
Zach Nycum, author
Waking up on a subway car you can’t remember getting on? Harsh. Being chained to your seat with no clue where you are headed? Even worse. Sitting across from a beautiful girl on the train ride to hell? Maybe this won’t be so bad for Ashe Edwards. Unfortunately, when the subway doors are opened by a gang of bizarre, belligerent teenagers, Ashe finds himself in a strange, abandoned town filled with eerie mannequins on every street corner, surrounded by a forty-foot-tall electric fence, and overrun with teenage hormones. To make matters worse, each week Ashe will be forced to fight for his life against waves of advanced, military-grade war machines, with the sole purpose to kill everyone in sight, dropped into their prison by an unknown, all-seeing captor. However, these wayward teens are not as helpless as Ashe first assumes. Each prisoner has a weapon or power, surgically implanted into their body without their knowledge, to utilize in the battle against the deadly war machines. Ashe will have to discover and master his ability, and learn to rely on the eccentric team he is assigned to, the Black Birds, if he doesn’t want to be slaughtered like countless others before him.
