The Beginning of Sorrows

14-year-old Caden Roth of Savannah, Georgia has known tragedy, including losing her adoptive mother to a senseless act of violence when she was an infant to barely surviving a school shooting that took the life of her best friend. Despite it, she does her best to lead a normal life with her adoptive father, her friends, and the cute new boy in town Dez.

But nothing will ever be normal again when she meets her guardian angel Grey. He opens a door to the dystopian spirit world of Interitas, where angels and demons fight for lost souls, poltergeists are real, and ancient prophecies say she must fight an apocalyptic war between the living and the dead.

Pursued by monsters, both human and otherwise, Caden is confronted by a dark destiny and the mortal challenge of whether or not she can stop it from happening.

Perfect for fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent, Interitas Volume 1: Beginning of Sorrows is written by award-winning playwright Rick Garman. It captivates readers with masterful storytelling that weaves a rich mythology into a real-world setting, where well-developed characters try to prove that destiny is not inevitable.
