After acquiring a bachelor’s degree in creative writing and an associate’s degree in computer graphic design, Bryan studied filmmaking and film editing while working at a performing arts studio in San Diego, California. He took this knowledge to write, direct and edit films under his banner, Divine Trinity Films.

The bleak world created by Bryan Caron is amazing and scary. Set after World War III, religious fervor and racism are rampant. People do whatever they can to get by, often at the expense of others.
Madeline is a young girl made curious to know of the outside world and thus starts her adventures away from the only home she ever knew. In doing so, she encounters a dark world she never understood before. She grows in knowledge and learns what the real world is like as she tries to survive.
The language of this book is wonderful. I was captivated by the words. I'll be honest, at first it was a put-off but as I continued to read, I understood Madeline through her eloquence. Her vocabulary stood in stark contrast with most everyone else she meets and it's this dichotomy of language that helps her stand out as a character.
I loved this book. Well done!
