Author's note with Prologue.
This is book one if you wish to read in order. Here are some things to consider while reading this series:
- The content found inside can be triggering at times. I write with mature and sometimes dark topics. Ensure you can handle this type of content before reading
- Constructive criticism is always allowed as it will help me grow as a writer. But please do not confuse that with hate. It will not be tolerated.
- The Dark Reality series is an experiment to test my limits as a writer. Meaning, I have never tried to write a series that is technically 3 separate books with different storylines and characters.
To make things clearer, each book in this series can be considered a stand-alone book as the characters in all 3 books share no connection with another. But by the end of the series, it will tell a single story.
The only connection present is I'm taking their experiences from 3 separate books and creating a single story that will be understood as "The Dark Reality" series.
- I hope this clears things up and that you enjoy "The Dark Reality" series!
Revenge is dangerous; it brings more issues to the table than you can handle.
Revenge is foolish; even if it seems logical in the moment.
Revenge gets more people hurt or killed; than it solves the problem.
My brothers had completely ignored the points listed above and threatened the safety of our entire family.
Most 17 year old's should be able to go out and live their life. Not me. In order to keep food on the table for my family to eat, I was forced to sacrifice my safety as I work in dangerous areas to support us.
Brazil is not the best place to anger those with power. My brothers did, fairly often if I recall, which created problems for us.
Despite the beauty that can be found in this country, a good population of the kids come from a broken family. Drugs, shootings, and robberies often happen in the same streets that these kids play or walk on. In my town, the youth created a sanctuary. A safe place for these kids to rest and relax. This place prohibits any kind of violence, so that is why it is hard to earn membership.
That's why I'm the only member from our family. Ever since our mama's murder my brothers have changed from kind and respectful, to cruel and unpredictable.
"Thugs" is a more appropriate word. But hey, no judgement.
Now let's add a new determined Mafia Don that is dead set on avenging the murder of his younger brother to the pot and stir a bit.
What do you get?
