Short Synopsis (under construction)
After five years cut off from the rest of the world and three years of intense strife, Eastern and Western European nations have unified in opposition of each other. With all their standing armies engaged in games of cat and mouse against their counterparts, it falls to para-military and training institutions to deal with the insurgence of rebel factions & skirmishes. Hey, what better way to get experience than actual combat, what could possibly go wrong?
Two years after the Western Allied Academy entered active service, their pride and joy– Alpha Squadron– lead by their prodigious commander Nick Stone dies while on assignment at Geneva University. Their only surviving member, Heinz, a sniper on duty with the local militia, now has to help rebuild the team with a new commander, one he is not too keen to embrace.
General second class, Emile Beuachemain spearheads the recruitment of new members to rebuild this prestigious squadron, though his new members are controversial. Under the command of Max Aereno, a foreigner with background in “special” forces operations and a band of misfits, ranging form ex-convicts to drunkards and snobs, Max has his work cut out for him.
The game is setup. The pieces enter play. Will Max be able to lead a new team of “special” individuals when the deck is stacked against him? Just how much is he unaware of? After all, what would you do to try to save the only family you ever remembered having?
About the Author
I am an undergraduate student at Concordia University studying English Literature & Professional Writing. I started writing in 2006 as a kid, and in 2008 started writing more seriously. Though none of the works writtenback then have ever seen the light of day, in 2010 I undertook writing a complete book for my IB personal project in high school. Five years later, that project has been placed on the shelf and in 2012, after two NaNoWriMo attempts, I released my first published work Archetypes: State of Play. Over the past three years I have focused mainly on my Academic career as that has been my priority, but as I am nearing the midway point of university I am becoming more and more serious about writing.
Since I launched Archetypes I have worked on several projects that are coming to fruition, including the upcoming Peace Speaker series and Anonymous. I enjoy writing and hope to continue to do so for a long time to come.
I am here for the community that reads my work and I am looking forward to getting to know you guys as well (if you let me of course). I hope that those of you who do read some of my works will enjoy it at least as much as I enjoyed making it. If I can do that, and maybe even get you to think about some of the things involved in that book, then I think I have succeeded in at least one of my primary goals.
