The Boy Who is Forced to Save the World

I’m so excited to announce that I have the most amazing privilege of being a part of The Fellowship of Fantasy‘s second anthology!  Last year they did one on “Fantastic Creatures,” and this year on fantasy heroes!

I have written a short story about an eleven-year-old telepathic and telekinetic genius named Gemini (or “Gem”), who was born to be the next “Omnicron” (think Avatar, the Last Airbender in a way) to use his mental abilities to hold the planet together during the next core earthquake that could rip it apart.

Gem is INTP, precocious, emotionally shattered (Can you imagine reading minds your whole life?!) and cynical.

Meet our main character: Soleil Punicello. She is a twenty-five-year-old who is employed to nurture and protect Gem’s fragile psyche.

Can she help him prepare for a role that could kill him?

Gem is like a mix between The Giver, Ender’s Game, and Lucent Sylph. If you like those style of stories, you should love Gem!

To read my story, and 27 other stories by my dear, intelligent, gifted author friends in this anthology FOR FREE, click here!  Enjoy!  And please leave us a review!  Let us know which stories were your favorites!

(Disclaimer: I have not read the other stories in this anthology, although each of the authors had to abide by the rules of “clean reading” material laid out in the group.  We each went through a rigorous judging – “Gem” passed with flying colors and made a judge cry!  WOOT – and were deemed acceptable for the anthology, but I can’t warn of any content myself. I have read half of the previous anthology and enjoyed it!)

  1. Good story! I particularly found the creative perspective RJ Conte took on what life would be like if someone read minds. The relationship between the young woman and the boy was touching.
