World War A
Clarence Xon, Author
2030 A.D. An economic crash is looming but college student Kaden Sun has bigger concerns at hand. Winning the WarGames Championship won’t be easy, especially when the crowd prefers shouting racial slurs to team chants. With Chinese ownership and investment in the US at an all-time high, Kaden’s black hair, dark eyes, and distinctive cheekbones have become dangerous assets. But Kaden is determined to walk the high road. On the verge of destitution, he finds an expensive wallet with thousands of dollars enclosed and returns it to the owner. He doesn’t realize that this single act will reshape his destiny and overturn the lives of those he loves. In this first novel of the World War A duology, a Chinese-Russian alliance brings the mighty US to its knees and Kaden becomes entangled in a political conspiracy that will force him to embrace his destiny, if it doesn’t kill him first.
