What would you sacrifice to save the one’s you love? To save the one who holds your heart? To save the world?
Kenley Grayson is all too familiar with these questions.
After Earth is thrust into its first intergalactic war with an unknown race called the Bringers, our military forces begin to suffer heavy losses. Desperate for a solution, the Allied Federation issues a worldwide draft for every able seventeen year old to enlist. As Kenley turns seventeen, she finds herself thrown into the very war that took her older brother’s life.
This year’s draft is a little different than in the past though. A new program, known as the Magnus Project, has been introduced, and only the best and brightest qualify. Kenley is amongst a select few whom are chosen to join this elite group of soldiers, and as a part of this project, undergoes a modification procedure that leaves her and her peers endowed with powers beyond their wildest dreams.
As Earth continues in its struggle against the Bringers, Kenley is transported to a high-tech training facility, the Magnus Academy, to prepare for the major battle that lies ahead. It’s here that she meets the California heartthrob, and son of a legendary war hero, Landon Shaw. As unexpected feelings toward Landon begin to develop, Kenley wonders if this is the right time or place for romance to bloom, especially when those feelings start to interfere with her training.
With the weight of the world on her shoulders, Kenley is constantly reminded of how important she and the rest of the Magnus cadets are to the fate of humanity. She is one of the Modified, Earth’s last line of defense against utter destruction.
5 OF 5 THE MODIFIED
Where to start with this review. OMG This mother and son duo has done it again. I can't even fully explain what happened in this book without thinking back to what I just read. The Modified is something straight off of SYFY and I am so glad I was able to read it.
What would you do for your loved ones? That is the big question Kenley has to answer. The world as she knows it is going to change because when the young adults turn seventeen they have a choice to make. They can either join the establishment and help her people out and then some of them are offered a special place where they can be modified and gain powers to save their world. What is Kenley to do? She fears the establishment because she lost her older brother and fears for her life but she wants to do what is right for her loved ones. So she decides to be modified.
Once she is modified she begins training at the academy to learn how to harness her powers and save Earth. Only she did not bank on going to the academy and falling in love. When she meets Landon her life changes. She tries to fight it but love wants what it wants and she wants Landon. What will she do with her new found feelings? Will Landon feel the same way? Will Kenley be able to learn how to harness her powers? Come along for the greatest ride of a lifetime! I love this mother and son duo. Please keep giving me more EPIC reads!
A total love of all things supernatural is what inspired this fifty-four year young mom and her twenty-six year old son to put this story on paper.
Carol Kunz was born in New Ferry, England. Her interest in the supernatural was first sparked upon meeting a ghost at the age of eight. As a teenager, she was always fascinated by the mythology behind vampires, werewolves and witches. Being an avid reader, Carol finds it easy to spend several hours wrapped up in a great fantasy novel.
Adam Kunz was born in Newport News, Virginia. Growing up, he was a huge fan of creature features and books about things that go bump in the night. When he is not busy writing, Adam enjoys his job at a certain theme park in Orlando, Florida as a décor consultant. This job brings him face to face with all sorts of nightmarish creatures, especially when he decorates the haunted houses for the park’s annual Halloween event.
Carol and Adam currently reside forty-five minutes away from each other in the sunny state of Florida. The Childe is their debut novel.
