Author Spotlight - Bree_Niah

Ignis

After a government shutdown that leaves the nation in disarray, a new power comes in to relieve the people’s problems. The Three Kings take over; giving the people hope in a land of violence and anger, but their help comes with a price. Instead of just getting everything back up and running they take a dictatorship control over everything and separate everyone into two factions, Superior and Inferior. Those a part of Inferior are treated with the strictness of the smallest mistake getting them beaten or killed and those in Superior are treated extremely well, both so that rebellion is far off their minds.

Aine Burk was born into the Inferior faction and has been different from the others all of her life. She wasn’t afraid of what would happen to her and has the marks all over her body to prove it. Now with just a spark of rebellion in the air and an event that puts her on the Three Kings radar she has enough ammunition to start fighting back. To take down the Three Kings before they can abuse their power more than they already have.

Any genre that appeals to me is what I’ll write. Teen Fiction, Science Fiction [which Ignis is], Non-Teen Fiction, Romance, Vampire, just pretty much anything accept Historical Fiction and Non-Fiction.

At least two more books are going to be written to continue the story of Aine, it will not all fit in one  book.

8. What inspired you to become a writer?

When I was able to write stories or things that I thought up and didn’t get irritated or find it boring I knew that it was something I could do. Once I realized all of that, I also thought of how  books bring me and lots of others joy and wanted to experience the feeling of being the one who gives the people that joy.


Excerpt

"You've just made my life a little bit better Aine, but I can't say I won't miss our almost daily meetings." Todd chuckled humorously as he spoke and I would have come back with a snarky remark, but I was cut off.

"Release them."

I didn't have to look to know that it was the King's voice that had spoken, and had caused the men to move away so quickly and snap to attention. Though just because I didn't need to didn't stop me from looking up, and looking him straight in the eyes.

"Nothing here will be taken into account since it was not this woman's fault. I'm sure she had no prior knowledge of this attempt. As for the girl she was just protecting her from you. What you really should be worrying about is that rebel. He made an attempt on my life and escaped, maybe I need to bring in some new leadership if the current couldn't handle one man." His tone was soft, but held a deadly undertone.

Though he was talking to his little henchmen he didn't tear his eyes away from mine, and I refused to back down from the stare. Even as they uncuffed us, we stared and I could see in his eyes that there was something he was thinking, but wasn't saying right now. Well not while he was around us at least.

I had just caught the eye of the wrong man, and no matter what he had planned, nothing good could come from it.

Lily paced the small space of her room for almost half an hour before she turned to look at me, her face contorted in what looked like pain, anger, sadness, and just a little determination.

"They're coming. Not tonight, but they are and you have to be prepared for them when they do. We all have to be prepared."
