JUNGLE (Jungle Series, Book 1) By author Alan Berkshire
To think, Adam used to love camping.
The black Dust fell for over a week. Adam Blake, a seasoned survival expert, was trapped in his first floor flat in a small suburb of southeast London--no food, no cell service, and no communication with the outside world. Then the dust stopped falling.
As the residents of Buckingham Avenue were left bewildered, there was no sign of help, no emergency services, no police. Just Adam and his confused neighbours.
The storm was just as sudden--violent, coming out of nowhere. It was as if the town was cursed. Then came the vines.
They overran every piece of grassland, park, wood, and forest. With the vines came small ape-like creatures. Now, surrounded by silent yet proficient killers, Adam may be the small neighbourhood's only hope of survival. He needs to escape the mysterious growth with the diverse and eccentric members of his community, desperate for answers. Then the true horror begins.
Can Adam lead his neighbors to safety in their new, strange, and hostile world?
SPELLBOUND AND SENSATIONLESS: A DRUG WAR VISION by author Michael Palladini
Spellbound and Sensationless: A Drug War Vision. Best friends struggling with their drug-fueled past, embark on a journey of self-discovery which changes their lives forever.
What is a drug war vision? A personal vision. A battle with enemies known and unknown. Where did it start? Where is it going? Life continues to follow childhood friends Mark and Jason as they try to move beyond the memories and break the pull of the past. The drugs remain within reach, the law has made its statement, relationships have come and gone. The world waits for them to find their place. Spellbound and Sensationless. Love and Friendship. Art and Music. Drugs and War. A personal war.
A drug war is defined as an organized campaign against the production, trafficking, and use of illegal drugs. A vision can be defined as an idea or mental image. The war on drugs has created many visions for many years. Spellbound and Sensationless is one of those visions. A personal vision of a drug war that is fought every day in the heart and the mind, in homes, schools, offices, and on the streets. A vision of a world at war with itself, singular worlds in the midst of an unknown universe that is unable to see.
Share the vision.
