K.M. Riley is not only a lover of stories, but she's a game designer, artist, and fan of all things imaginative. If she's not writing, she's daydreaming or doodling about more worlds and characters that will make great tales. With a background in Creative Writing, she's always busy creating new adventures, or taking part in them.
Kaden Valens' world is kill or be killed. Such is the life of a Challenger, the property of a Citizen. Fight or die. When Kaden is ordered to face his sole family member, his sister Nix, he chooses a different battle—one against the Federacy that owns him. Rebel Cassidy Havok is the Federacy's worst nightmare. Her only goal is to bring down the government, doing whatever it takes to eradicate the slave-based society. When Kaden defies the Federacy publicly, she hopes to make an ally out of him, turning the tide in the resistance’s favor. Cassidy helps Kaden escape the clutches of the Citizenry, and they flee to the Wilds, the world outside the Federacy’s reach. There they plan for the fight of a lifetime. Can they take on a nation, or is their cause a lost one?
Young/New Adults into dystopians and sci-fi/fiction.
Book cover type
Don’t know yet
This book was published, but I'm looking to republish it. The current cover can be found here, and is a decent idea of what I'm looking for. https://www.authorkmriley.com/fever-rising.html I want the main character, Havok, on the cover. She's an exceptional fighter, and carries two short swords on her back and belt of daggers. She wears a black jacket, tight fighting pants and boots. Think modern assassin/fighter. She has dark hair pulled back, and violet eyes, as well as an ever serious expression. Ideally, I'd love to have the brand mark on the back of her neck showing. It's a 1-3 that looks almost like a B. Maybe she's got her back to the reader with a a half turned face as she watches the city from a high vantage point. Now the cities in the book are huge, once Utopian like places encased by towering walls. I imagine Havok looking down on the streets, as if ready to strike. Perhaps the small figures of her enemies, Wardens, are down there, which are the military like figures in all black armor (think Swat). On that same link is a rather good comic of Havok and a Warden that can be used as reference. Overall it should feel dark and interesting.
