On Fractured Ground
Book 1 of The Shattered Lives Chronicles
There are no heroes here. Only survivors.
As a child, Tylar Daislea was abandoned at Cellar Institute. A despicable fortress with just one directive: to brainwash, train and traffic women. Introduced to a sex trainer at sixteen, she excelled through the initial two years of skills. Until one fateful afternoon, when it all fell apart.
When Tylar leads a second skill trainer to ruin, Corbin Manning receives the call. His father’s unsolved murder left him in charge of the illicit facility his family established decades ago. Forced to return to an underground world he always loathed, Tylar’s behavior threatens to drive him past the brink of his tolerance.
Thrust into the middle is Corbin’s most trusted employee, Chase Tiburon. Faced with a distasteful decision, Chase must return to his former life as a skill trainer or take on a task that will haunt him for the rest of his life.

Forced to face his demons, Corbin begins to unravel. His uncharacteristic behavior clues Chase into the fact that nothing is what it seems. Convinced Corbin is hiding a secret involving Tylar, he challenges his employer’s resolve. Lines are crossed as the rift in their friendship widens.
Past and present collide as the dark truths surrounding the Institute start to unfold. With Tylar's life now in his hands, will Corbin be able to break the cycle? Or is he doomed to become a monster worthy of the Manning legacy?
