The Division 53 Novels Series
In a dystopian future where blades are the dominant weapon, the economy is down, the U.S. is fragmented due to minor secessions and dangerous criminals call for a stronger arm of law enforcement; a system of skilled, handcrafted agents exists to protect the innocent and defenseless. Their methods are effective but harsh, so Division 53 of Homeland Security is a hidden sector, and the members of the American Security Association are separated from civilians. This series is about people who belong to and are affected by Division 53 in their daily lives. Some thrive in this system, some reject it, and others have been harmed by it. One fact is always the same though: they cannot escape it.

Desoite the hardships, he still believes it’s working out fot the best—t least until two lawless vigilantes show up in Cavington, looking for him.
