Paradoxon: Invitation of the Dying Love
by Janice Buswell
“Are you sure this is the journey you want to take?”
Rae fled from the edge of the city. She was late. Already the rumble of the nightly riot had begun. But as she ran, she had no idea it would be for the last time…
“Paradoxon: Invitation of the Dying Love” is the story of Rae who was born in the stratified city of Onze. Thrown into a rocky companionship with four perfect strangers united only by a common fear of the city’s growing conflicts and by a cryptic invitation promising answers, she discovers that only the mysterious paradox of a “dying love” can save the city they’ve always known. That is, if each one can find the strength to embrace it… and by it to embrace one another…”

Bestowed with a guardianship and trained in the Paradox of the Dying Love, she and Karyn and David and Traice journey back to Onze to begin a work of transformation in their troubled city.

What readers are saying…
“It was impossible for me to predict what would happen next in Paradoxon! The characters were so multidimensional that I wish I could meet each of them in person.”
“It was a very engaging book! It was hard to stop after one chapter and not go on to another chapter, even when it was late at night…”
“…Young and old alike will find this an interesting, no, enjoyable read. The young for the things they may learn of themselves – the old for the things they can share with the youth in their lives…”
