The humans fought wars and poisoned the earth. They became wicked down to their blood. They created a world where corruption and violence were the only ways to survive. And when that became too much, they gave birth to the Adaptions, our toxic bodies and toxic minds poison to them, and perfect for the hell they made.
But I am wrong. There are people inside my head, and they won’t let me go. My name is Inanis, and I need to be the monster in my blood.
The Toxic Children is the debut novelette by Tessa Maurer.
