Seventeen-year-old Rogue has always classified herself as socially awkward, preferring video games over a trip to the mall. When she wakes up in a forest, she finds that life as she knew it has changed forever, and she cannot remember how. In fact, she can't remember the last six months at all. As she navigates this new world she soon discovers a talent for combat and survival she'd never had before. A handy ability in a world where humans compete in a game governed by rules she can't remember.
Ronin, a talented 19-year-old, was wrenched from his Midwest home and forced to compete with a Skaki set. Despite the set's repeated losses, Ronin has proven himself a powerful player, his sights set on surviving each match - no matter the cost. When a new pawn is added to his set to replace one they lost, Ronin begins to break out of the shell he built around himself and reexamines what he and the other humans have become.
About the Author: J.C. Ahern
J.C. Ahern was born and raised in the Midwest. From a young age she watched her older siblings playing videogames. She also developed a passion for reading and playing those same games herself. It wasn’t long before her immersion into the different worlds of Fantasy and Sci-fi that she was inspired to create her own worlds and write her own stories. She began her craft in the sixth grade and continued that passion into college where she graduated from Stephens College with a degree in Creative Writing. She went on to get a degree in Nursing, which led her to become a Nurse Practitioner. She now uses the experiences of her life and the things she has learned to enrich her stories to take her readers on flights for the imagination.
About the Narrator: Sean Patrick Hopkins
A student of neuroscience and speech pathology, Sean Patrick Hopkins has translated his understanding of human behavior & vocal performance into a career in storytelling. His classical training and versatility with dialects has helped to create distinct and varied characters across many genres. In addition to narrating over 150 audiobooks, he has been seen and heard on film, television, video games, and stages in NYC & across the country. When not in the booth, you can find him buried in genealogy research, out exploring our National Parks, and raising an amazing daughter alongside his wife, fellow narrator Patricia Santomasso.
About the Narrator: Patricia Santomasso
Patricia has always been an avid reader and storyteller. In college she politely smiled hearing the age old question: what on earth are you going to do with a BA in English? Patricia pressed on, thinking what can’t you do? Realizing she should get some practical training to fall back on, she also pursued a degree in theater. After working for years on stages around the country (where she met her husband, narrator Sean Patrick Hopkins, doing a production of As You Like It) she has merged her two loves and happily tells stories for a living from the comfort of a booth. To date, she has recorded over 100 audiobooks. Patricia’s youthful voice and comic timing give heroines a warm relatability and her surprising dips into baritone make her male characters engaging and believable. Patricia and Sean have a sweet baby daughter Lyra Róisín, who isn’t much interested in hearing either one of them read to her.
