With his new love by his side, and so many more to protect, John must fight.
His secrets are slowly coming out. There’s no more hiding or running. A never-ending war is slowly rising from its ashes. John will stop at nothing to keep the peace in the world. But once the peace is gone, war hell must be brought.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I used writing as a form of therapy to make myself a hero in situations I didn't know how to handle. I spent over 5 years editing and adding to this book. It's a start to the UnWanted Series which includes horror, action and suspenseful thrillers.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The main character was developed and changed alot over the years I worked on it. He originally was a normal man but I wanted him to be memorable when I decided to add this into a series of other novels. Most of the side characters in this are based off people I know. The main villain was an over exaggeration of someone I thought was a friend who turned out to be a bad guy.
John watched the moon glow in the sky as he walked the wood lines around Ashley’s house. He could still hear Ashley screaming at her mother. He didn’t want to be anywhere near the argument. He laid his pack down and sat next to a tree and took a big drink from his canteen.
The ground was nothing compared to the couch he had the night before, but the shower and shave with clean clothes still felt like a blessing. He unrolled his sleeping bag and laid his head on the sack, just like he did a few days before. He closed his eyes and prayed. He couldn’t stop thinking of Lacie. He dreamed of her again.
John awoke when he felt pressure around his arm. A tightening pain strained in his bicep. He held his breath and slowly pulled his arm from the sleeping bag. Immediately, it felt heavier. “Not again,” he whispered. He waited for the snake to move just a little more before grabbing underneath the jaw in a flash. The green snake hissed and squirmed. “You’re lucky I don’t eat you,” he said, pulling the snake off his arm, and wrapping it around a large branch.
He packed his things and made his way back to Ashley’s house. He knocked on the door and waited. Ashley opened the door still half asleep. “Morning,” John smiled. Ashley mumbled under her breath and sluggishly made her way back to her room. John smirked as he sat down.
“Not much of a morning person,” he said to himself. He waited until she came back with a small bag. “Here’s one of my brother’s trunks. You can pull the string out if you want,” she said, tossing him a pair of shorts. John smirked and went to the back to change. He came back pulling at the string.
Ashley was on the phone with Lacie. “I can’t believe he let you go. He’s always been so strict when it came to boys. Plus isn’t he about to leave for two weeks?” Ashley asked without noticing John. “All right he’s ready. We’re on our way,” she continued and hung up the phone. “You ready?” she asked. “Oh yeah,” he exclaimed as he followed her outside.
He opened the passenger door and waited for Ashley to buckle the seat belt before jumping over the hood and into the driver’s side window. “Why’d you dive through the window?” Ashley laughed. “It was faster.,” John chuckled, spinning the tires in the gravel.
“You don’t always have to spin out like that.,” Ashley almost laughed. John just laughed as the smoke cleared behind him.
When John pulled into Lacie’s driveway, he quickly got out. He took a deep breath and knocked on the door. “Wait one—,” a voice boomed back. John waited nervously for several moments before the door swung open. Lacie’s father stepped in the doorway. “Good morning, sir,” John greeted with a strong voice.
“Morning,” he answered back. “Lacie’s getting ready. How long will you be out?” her father asked in a serious tone.
“Just a few hours,” John answered quickly.
“All right, don’t be too late,” her father said, stepping aside. Lacie quickly stepped out and smiled at John. “Good morning, beautiful,” John said smiling back.
Lacie blushed and stepped outside. John could feel the protective stare of her father. “Have a good day, sir,” John said, nodding to the man. He just quickly shut the door behind him. “Wow, that’s the first.,” Lacie almost laughed. “Why is that?” John asked, taking her hand. Lacie felt his cold hands and almost lost her breath. “Usually he would have threatened you,” she said in a soft voice, rubbing John’s hand.
“Come on, let’s get going,” John flirted. They took off to the car. Ashley climbed in the back seat and waited. John opened the passenger door for Lacie. He shut the door behind her and stepped a few steps back. He smiled at Lacie and pulled on his shorts.
With a quick rush, John dove, landing his hands on the hood. He kicked off and flipped over the hood, landing on his feet on the other side. With the same momentum, he jumped again, sending his feet through the open window, landing safely in the seat.
He cranked the car and grinned at Lacie. “Show- off,” Ashley smirked behind him. Lacie just laughed as she ran her fingers down John’s arms as he drove away.
John stopped at a red light and cracked his neck. “So how did you find this swimming spot?” Lacie asked, staring into John’s eyes.
She still couldn’t understand how she felt so strongly towards him.
