Rehabilitation by C.B. Stone

“My name is Sinna Reardon. I suppose deep down I’d like to believe God exists. But he doesn’t, not since the war. Most days I’m OK with that. Jacob calls me a pessimist, but I’m a realist. How can I Believe when a place like Rehabilitation and a regime like the Elite exist, dictating our every move?

If God were so great, he’d do something. But he hasn’t. We’re forgotten. And that scares me, because it means I might have to do something myself…”

Sinna has spent her life walking a fine line between breaking the rules and obeying them to a fault. In a Godless world where science and logic reign supreme and people are punished for Believing, are friendship and love reasons enough to abandon unbelief? Enough to put her faith in something bigger than herself?

Maks jumps in to help, fighting age-old customs and flouting conventions that try to hold him hostage. He soon realizes that the world is even more complex than he thought, and standing up for the truth is tougher when it means going against your best friend.

Once upon a time in a world where magic and technology collide with unexpected consequences…

When the royal family of the neighboring country visits, Prince Laurent turns down the princess—with dire results. Turned into swans, he and his brothers flee, followed by their sister in a flying machine. But then they crash on a remote cemetery. Can they regain their human bodies, before the angry princess catches up with them? And what about the strange ghost Laurent feels attracted to?

What if Hans Christian Andersen had known what “The Wild Swans” were capable of?
