Prequels are the best things. As a writer, you’re always told to start a book in medias res. Basically, don’t start telling a story from the beginning. Yes, there will be the entire book to discover where characters come form and why the story had started, but you’ll never be there. And that’s exactly why I love prequels so much!
The book is Ruins of Fate (The Omni Towers, Prequel) by Jamie A. Waters, out today in the Adult, Dystopian, Fantasy, Post-Apocalyptic Genre.
One wrong decision, and the future will crumble… Skye Levanthe traded everything she owned in order to secure a place for herself and her son, Veridian, in a scavenging camp.
But all contracts have an expiration date.
Desperate to obtain the resources they need to survive, Skye agreed to navigate the dangerous ruins of fallen cities to search for tradeable materials. When a strange storm forced Skye and her scavenging partner into forbidden territory controlled by The Omni Towers, a ruin collapsed, nearly taking their lives and destroying countless others.
Only one other person survived the ruin collapse: a mysterious young girl named Kayla.
Faced with the decision to save her son or abandon her new foster daughter to a terrible fate, Skye agreed to the only possible course of action—to go into exile and take on the Omni traders in their own den.
No one ever said survival would be easy.
And every choice has consequences.

“You must find her. Hurry. She needs you.”
“There it is again. I don’t think—” Her voice cut off as the dim sound of a scream caught her attention. She grabbed Leo’s arm. “Someone’s out here. They’re trapped.”
Without waiting for a response, Skye ran out the exit and into a large thoroughfare. Rubble and building debris surrounded her, and she saw what Leo had been talking about. Dozens of store entrances surrounded her, and she listened, trying to determine the direction of the cries. An almost desperate urge to find them filled her, hastening her progress.
“Dammit, Skye,” Leo said from behind her. “This is too dangerous. If the ground shakes again, this whole place could come down.”
“Hurry, daughter of the sky. She’s almost out of time. You cannot let her die.”
