Signups CLOSED: October Tour: Children of Paranoia by Trevor Shane

Children of Paranoia
all wars have rules
rule #1: no killing innocent bystanders
rule #2: no killing anyone under the age of eighteen
break the rules, become the target

Imagine if your neighbor, your co-worker, or the barista behind the counter at your local coffee shop was sent to kill you, but you had no way of knowing. This is the world debut author Trevor Shane has created. In his breakout novel CHILDREN OF PARANOIA (September 8, 2011; $25.95), Shane depicts an ancient underground war raging in the shadows of a world much like our own, but not even those who are fighting know what side they’re on.

The war is ageless, concealed, structured by rigid rules, and fought by two distinct sides—one good, one evil. The only unknown is which side is which. Soldiers in the war hide in plain sight, their deeds disguised as accidents or suicides amidst an unsuspecting population.

Joseph has been a part of the war since he was eighteen, the age when young adults on both sides are chosen and taught how to kill. Joseph is undoubtedly one of the best soldiers the war has ever seen, because he understands the rules and the consequences of breaking them—if he breaks the rules, he’ll never get out alive.

But on one particularly dangerous assignment, Joseph meets Maria, a young woman who is uninvolved in the war: an Innocent. When Maria enters his life, Joseph finds that the black and white, good versus evil world he has always blindly trusted begins to crumble. Soon, Joseph is forced to explain himself to the woman he loves, and for the first time he finds a new reason to stay alive, and along with it, a new reason to fight.

In a world where everyone might be a killer and paranoia is the most valuable asset, Joseph realizes what he always knew to be true: the first to kill is the last to survive.

CHILDREN OF PARANOIA is set in a dystopian landscape reminiscent of I am Number Four and The Hunger Games, with a moral sensibility that will entice fans of Showtime’s Dexter. Trevor Shane effortlessly transitions between nail-biting action and heartfelt emotion, sure to delight genre fans and literary fiction lovers alike.
