When twelve-year old Tyler Hudgens wakes up in the courtyard, he's buried up to his neck with twenty other screaming, terrified kids. Welcome to Frazier's compound, a place where Tyler and a chosen few will unlock powers in themselves that they could only dream about. Frazier has a plan to turn them into gods, and the only price is the death of 2.5 million people. When a schism occurs in their group, they're all flung into a battle that will test their loyalties and ultimately decide the fate of the world.
David "Whitey" Jones is a brand new reporter, and through chance or fate, he's given the Tyler Hudgens case, a story no one else wanted. As Whitey digs for leads, he discovers The Moby Dick of all news stories; a riveting tale of mad scientists, telekinesis, and betrayal. With his eye on the Pulitzer, Whitey dives into a whole new world that may give him everything he ever wanted; or take his life.
The world's future hangs in the balance, and a new world waits in the wings, on the brink of Conception.

Tyler woke up to a nightmare. The sun was scorching his face, he couldn’t move his body, someone was screaming at the top of their lungs, and he was thirsty.
He craned his neck to look around, but could barely credit what he was seeing: He and about twenty other people – most of them looked to be about his same age – were buried up to their necks, literally. Most were still knocked out, but he could hear people waking up behind him, and of course, there was the screamer.
Panic surged through him and he bit his tongue to keep from screaming himself. A bead of sweat formed and dripped down the side of his nose. He stuck his tongue out and tried to catch the liquid. He was so thirsty.
“Do you think we’ll go crazy?” a girl’s voice asked, unexpectedly.
He looked over his shoulder at the girl. She was blonde, about eleven years old, with blue eyes and pale skin that was already reddening in the sun’s heat.
“No, we won’t go crazy,” he said with more bravado than he felt. Others were beginning to wake up now, and alarmed conversation babbled all around them. The screamer, apparently indefatigable, kept screaming.
“Would somebody shut that bitch up?” A shout came from Tyler’s left in an English accent.
“She can’t help it, she’s scared,” the blonde girl replied angrily.
“Yeah, well screamin’ till she ruptures her throat and drives us all batty isn’t going to help, now is it?”
“Does anyone know where we are?” Tyler asked, raising his voice above the clamor.
“Well that’s obvious isn’t it?” the Brit replied. “We’re in the jungle baby, and just like the song says, ‘they got fun and games.’ They’re watching us. See the cameras?”
Tyler examined the horizon more closely. He saw trees, a chain link fence, some sort of outbuilding two hundred yards to the left, and yeah, sure enough, poles sunk into the ground around their “patch” with cameras mounted and pointed directly at them.
So this was a show, and someone was watching.

K.S. Fish was born in San Diego, California. Though he was a single child growing up, he was lucky enough to have worlds upon worlds of brothers and sisters bumping around in his brain. His first short story was inscribed on his mother’s uterus.

His first book, Conception, amazed readers with its character driven narrative and exciting storyline.
K.S. Fish resides in Georgia with many friends, his goldfish Barney, and a lifetime’s worth of stories to tell.
