The Asylum: One hundred years ago, genetics research reached an all-time high, splitting humanity into three different species: regular humans, Third Gens (who have special abilities akin to superheroes of old), and satyrs (animal-human hybrids). Now, a new team of Watchers – government-approved vigilantes – learn to work together despite their individual backgrounds. But long-buried secrets begin to rise to the surface, calling everything they know into question: were the satyrs and Third Gens really created by accident? Who was involved in the biggest cover-up in history? Who is the shadowy figure at the heart of the biggest heists in their generation – and what is his endgame?
The team includes a bird-boy, a human illusionist, a nightmare child, a light-bringer, a shadow-jumper, a bipolar geokinetic, a fighter, a spy, and an 80 year-old lady with a very special set of knitting needles. If the heroes interest you, then keep an eye out for the villains: a psychopathic crocodile, a girl who can talk to the narrator, a brother-sister team of venomous thieves, a mercenary empath, and the shadowy portal-jumper pulling their strings.
The Asylum is starting as a prose series with weekly episodic installments, perfect for all ages.
