Lonnie is just your average runner for the infamous Eighth Street Gang when he gets an urgent phone call to back up his crew after trouble follows them home from a drug deal gone bad.
During the ensuing firefight, Lonnie sees some things he wishes he hadn't, including the gang's leader, Selix, channeling her powers from a place called the Fade by getting high...and dancing. Memories begin unraveling inside Lonnie's darkened mind. Memories of dragons and fiends and fire-swept otherworlds. Memories Selix controls with a simple touch.
But what is real and what is not?
In the strange and violent world of Galefire, Lonnie comes to realize not everything is as it seems, including his own identity. But will Lonnie and Selix reconcile the past before they are caught by those who seek to drag them home in chains?

A peculiar book about drugs, street gangs, hell on earth and dragons … Lonnie is a young man with a drug problem and many more issues. He is the secret street runner for his crew doing all the buying and selling of packages and fetches anything needed. During one run he is called home by his crew to help in a street fight. This is where it becomes peculiar! His friends are dealers and thugs but because of their past and who he is … things begin to unravel and he discovers new uses for his drugs of choice. He can’t remember the name of his wife or child, but there is so much that he does remember … or does he? Kenny Soward weaves a fantastic tale that will have you on the edge of your seat. There were a few moments where I felt lost but Soward solved that confusion quickly and completely.
Soward takes his characters and builds them neatly into the plot but gives them depth that is interesting and meaningful – in other words they are much more than they seem. The twist this story takes is unexpected and amazing. It’s one of those “what, huh? Oh … wow” moments. This book is one of those rare finds where you are blindsided by the outcome.
Soward does a magnificent job of storytelling, not leaving anything to chance – instead, Soward takes the common response and turns everything upside down.
The narrator, Scott Aiello does an excellent job of performing the cast of characters especially the Jamaican and the Brit. Loved his performance! His voice was smooth and reflected the energy of each character.
