The One Exiled, a YA Sci Fi Adventure

Book 2 of the Game of Paradise series. Published November 15, 2023.

Yesterday, she was a savior. Today, she is an outcast.

Seventeen-year-old Rayne and her friends have just averted a disaster, stopping a shadow AI from wreaking havoc on their world. However, their relief is short-lived.

In the aftermath, Rayne and her boyfriend, Vic, are blamed for the chaos. As punishment, their Threads—their lifeblood and sole connection to the virtual Games they create—are severed, and Rayne and Vic are exiled, on the run… alone.

To add to their woes, the neighboring community falls victim to a ruthless assault by the Settler rebels—a radical anti-tech group dedicated to annihilating the AI that safeguards their world. Now, Rayne and her friends must find the Settlers, uncover their plans, and prevent them from striking again—because this time the Settlers’ target is Rayne’s own home, and everyone she holds dear.

Her only hope lies in surviving long enough to track down Freya’s Path, a legendary faction of coders, and persuading them to join her cause. But time is running out. In this race, the only prize for second place is certain, lonely death… as The One Exiled.
