What Are You Willing to Risk?
by P.L. Camery

Overview


The age of freedom is gone, usurped by the age of comfort, peace, and stability. The Regime of the Guardian has wiped out free will, finally creating a world where mankind can be happy. Advances in technology make controlling the masses as simple as granting entertainment in exchange for absolute surveillance. Society has broken down into a perfectly engineered system—there is a place for everyone, a preordained purpose so long as you're willing to accept it. But like a parent with spoiled children, the Guardian and her subjects do not always see eye to eye. There are still those so desperate to cling to their individuality they're willing to risk everything for it.

About the author


Despite choosing to pursue a profession in Materials Science and Engineering, I have always had a fascination with fantasy and adventure. As a young child I would immerse myself in the worlds of the characters I read, so much so that I fancied myself one of them, even molding and rewriting what was not necessarily in the original work. As I matured my stories stayed with me, keeping me awake at night as I imagined how different scenes would play out. Finally, in middle school I worked up the courage to pen my work and share it among my friends. Although looking back my first pieces were fairly rudimentary, the encouragement and enthusiasm I received inspired me to continue working. Even as a sophomore in grad school, I have not given up my craft. I continue to write and rewrite my stories in the hopes that my readers can have as much fun immersed in the tales as I do.
