A government conspiracy uncovered. A powerful underground agency. A lone girl to unveil it all.
Abyss, with the help of the government, has weaponized humans who had the ability to control time and space. They planned for every contingency, except Kalla. They weren’t prepared for a coup d’état from their own creations led by Kalla. Assisted by her ability to manipulate the climate around her, Kalla embarked on a mission to stop the underground government agency before they send the whole world careening into an abyss. Traveling through the deep alcoves of the Abyss Experimentation Labs and the forests of the renegade Myst, Kalla learned that not every battle can be won, and some victories come at a dire price.
–Abigail’s Targeted Tip:
Find the subject in every one of your sentences. We challenge you to rework any sentence in which your main character(s) is not taking action.
