From the Leviathan line of novels, welcome to Tribus Dulce, a three course adventure that is sure to tantalize your senses as much as it will challenge you to your core. Please allow me to set your table, as you prepare to indulge in the tastes of Bitter, Treacle and Saccharine.
The events that will soon unfold are a portrait of humanity. In Bitter, join teenage protagonist Abra Ostberg as she struggles to survive the horrors of her violently abusive household. One night while seeking to escape with her unlikely friend, the well off and aloof Judith Lee, Abra’s life takes a turn for the supernatural as she experiments with a drug known only as Hyperion. What began as a night of sanctuary, swiftly turns into a battle against demonic forces all around her…and within her own father.
Next, cleanse your pallet and prepare for the Treacle journey of a teenage boy by the name of Darrian Travis. Darrian is isolated and misunderstood, a bookish young black male with the sensibilities of a renaissance man from an age long past. Drowning in a sea of toxic masculinity, tormented constantly at school and often alone at home, Darrian finds love in the most unexpected of places. Once again, Hyperion enters into the lives of our protagonists, and Darrian and his friends and beloved find themselves pulled into the center of a paranormal war for the city of Evergrove against the demonic gangster Diamond.
Completing our trio of flavor is the Saccharine nature of Kashiya Hawthorn’s odyssey. A Pollyanna through and through, Kashiya will find her sweet spirit put to the test as she fights to hold on to her sanity and sense of self in the aftermath of Bitter and Treacle. Two super powered gangsters have set their sights on the young girl, and Kashiya is shoved into a corner with no relief in sight.
When being good just seems to net Kashiya more and more bad, how long will the Pollyanna overpower the entropy tearing through her soul?
The table is set…and now…
