This is a story quite simply about life and how we are a cog in the Machine.
In a world where magic and science go hand in hand, the students of Lanuleta University face challenges beyond just term papers and quirky roommates.
Miguel Reyes, a freshman at the prestigious universe for the scientific study of magic, has a voice inside his head. Not because he's going crazy, though he feels like it some days. He has a deficiency of primary magical ability with the mysterious voice as his only sign of magical aptitude. In this world, most people develop an innate, primary magical talent and then need to study hard for the possibility of a secondary one. Stuck with a seemingly-useless talent, he feels even more pathetic that the cute girl in his Psychology class with mood-ring hair, Nasira Jafri, has no interest in talking to him. However, a series of creepy and unexplained events will force them to work together and learn about one another.
Desperate times call for desperate measures. The Rebirth is only months away and a victory is a must. At all costs to stop the reoccurring nightmare that has tormented the land of Existara for centuries… For the first time in the History of the Concord – there is a chance for the impossible to happen. The question is – can they make it in time? Or will one man’s ambition be the executor that condemns the world into eternal chaos…

Grand events are set in motion as Grant's wish for a peaceful college life is interrupted by unnecessarily hazardous adventures, incredibly gorgeous women, handsome dangerous men, and unexplained phenomenons. The thrills of life just don't stop for the university's unlikely adventurer.

A note from the Author:
PLEASE leave a review and alert me of any plot holes, weak portions, and anything else. I am in desperate need of beta readers and feedback.
I wrote this around the new year, 2020. It's about 40k words and the first in a planned series that follows Gar "Alany" Darron and his agency of detectives as they track missing persons in the city of Throne. I have the sequel planned but not written. Once this one is completely uploaded, I'll be uploading another, unrelated series that as of right now is six books and roughly 160k words long, and somewhere in there, I'll write the sequel to Frame of Mind. I plan to go back and forth between the two series for the foreseeable future.
Thanks for reading.

A seemingly unplanned fellowship is pieced together from the remnants of society, sworn to safely escort Jason to Durham, Oklahoma, where his father was born three centuries earlier.
Sarafyn’s memories of his youth reveal how his innocence was warped by an alien bent on becoming a god. Yet perhaps, such protection is needed.
