Check out these gorgeous new covers for S.J. Pajonas’ NOGIKU SERIES! The captivating, post-apocalyptic series that harnesses the cultures and traditions of Japan and sweeps them into the future between Earth and a faraway land.
Here’s the blurb for book 1, REMOVED:
Duty knows no family. Love has no price. Secrets can cost you everything.
Twenty-year-old Sanaa Griffin is about to get more than she bargained for when she wishes for love, happiness, and excitement on New Year’s Eve. Ripped from the job she always loved, she is reassigned to work for mysterious Mark Sakai and spy on the corrupt leaders of her city. War looms on the horizon, and Sanaa must help Sakai determine the key players and their weak spots before it’s too late.
Mark Sakai has many plans for Sanaa that will take her into a web of lies and danger, and her only protection is to learn to defend herself. But defense training under the watchful eye of Jiro, a strong and enigmatic young man she has a crush on, was not what she expected. Between falling in love with Jiro and the information she is gathering, Sanaa realizes Sakai is holding back secrets about her family and her deceased parents, secrets as to why she was chosen for this job, and learning the truth puts all of humanity in jeopardy.
REMOVED is 99¢ and will stay 99¢ forever and ever.
If you’re still not sure about the Nogiku Series, you can download the FREE short story REVEALED PART ONE: NEW YEAR’S EVE WITH JIRO AND MARK. This is the first of 6-7 short stories I’ll be publishing as part ofREVEALED, a look at the events of REMOVED through Jiro and Mark’s eyes. You can read these first or read them after REMOVED. They compliment each other, and the risk is nothing since it’s FREE anyway (did I mention it’s FREE? Lol.)
