Book Release: Scorpion

An ancient story found in Aesop’s Fables:

A scorpion and a frog met on the bank of a stream. The scorpion asked the frog to carry him across the stream on its back.

“How do I know you won’t sting me?” asked the wary frog. The scorpion replied, “Because if I do, we will both drown.”

This seemed reasonable to the frog, and they set out together. But midstream, the scorpion stung the frog. The frog began to sink as paralysis set in, but with his last breath he gasped, “Why? Now we will both die!”
The scorpion replied, “It’s my nature; I can’t help it. I am a scorpion.”

The final book in the Tracker Trilogy is now available!
The Runners are preparing for a last-ditch, all-or-nothing assault on the stronghold of their deadliest enemies: the Givers. In order to gain entrance into the heavily-fortified Enclave, they are forced to rely on their new-found Hoarder ‘allies’, who harbour a hidden agenda of their own.
The true allegiance of the cryptic Mateo is impossible to prove, yet Runners and Hoarders alike have no choice but to risk trusting him.
Even as the Runners prepare to infiltrate the Enclave for the inevitable confrontation with the Givers, they must battle their own demons of anger, prejudice, and the thirst for revenge. The “Judas Card” – betrayal – has already been dealt, but which one them is holding it?
A cunning trap has been laid to ensnare them, and the Runners must learn what it means to “dance with the scorpion”, if they are to have any hope of surviving.
