Parable of the Renegades [BETA Version]

Hidden within the population are rare subspecies of humans called “Renegades.” Information on them had been scarce for decades, and the planet had been thrown into a state of caution ever since they were first revealed to exist.

Sheltered High School student Lucas Thorne only wanted a thrilling experience or at least a break from his mundane daily life routine. The turning point arrives when he is ambushed and put at the mercy of Rio Kiyodera, an assassin he witnessed on a chance encounter.

In exchange for sparing his life, Lucas is blackmailed into taking over Rio’s assignment–seven wanted Renegades with the potential to bring forth calamities if they remain alive.

Now, Lucas is forced to go on an adventure of missions while getting tangled in the affairs of others. His wish has been granted, but there is no turning back.

Volume 1 is currently set to be officially released as an E-book and paperback with a revised manuscript and extra features like illustrations! The first 6 chapters have been updated to be based on the official release, so I hope it interests you enough to read the official version!
