Fear Justice

by C.C. Bolick




GENRE: YA Urban Fantasy






Seventeen-year-old Rena Mason counts the days until she can leave for college. Every night her father drinks himself to sleep, leaving her to care for her younger brother. When her father is kidnapped by terrorists, her dreams of freedom become a nightmare.


Stunned that her father has a history with these terrorists, Rena knows she must run or be their next victim. She learns the tough guy at school has a reason to look after her – he’s working for a government agency with the same goal as the terrorists: find a woman who disappeared eighteen years ago. Time is running out since only this woman’s special gift can save the world from a looming nuclear attack.


Rena can’t trust anyone, especially not the stone-cold agent she’s falling for. Can they save the world before Rena’s feelings trap her in an agent’s fight for justice?


Fear Justice contains elements of fantasy, sci-fi, and paranormal, with a clean romance. It’s the first book in an exciting new series called The Fear Chronicles.



Excerpt One:

He smiled and held out a hand. “I’m Tony and no, I’ve never thought of myself as a nice guy.”


Staring at his outstretched hand, I hesitated. “Rena.”


Tony moved his hand closer and his eyes took on a look of intensity, as if daring me to shake his hand.


“What’s with the gloves?” I asked.


“Skin allergies. What’s with the hesitation?”


“Hesitation?” With defiance, I reached forward. “I’m not afraid of you.”


“What are you afraid of?”


As his hand gripped mine, my breathing sped and I fought to control my voice. Our skin wasn’t even touching. Hiding my feelings with Robbie had been easy, but this was… weird. “Why are you worried about who I date? You don’t even know me.”


“I know your name is Rena Mason. We’ve got physics together.”


A twinge of guilt caught me off-guard. “I haven’t noticed you before.”


“My dad taught me to blend in with my surroundings, like camouflage.”


“He was a hunter?”


“Not exactly, but he did teach me how to shoot before he left.”


“Left?” The instant his words were out, I felt a connection to him. It was a sadness that welled from deep inside, the knowledge that we were alike in a terrible way.



What group did you hang out with in high school? Never the popular one. I used to think it was them, but now I realize it was me.

What are you passionate about these days? Literacy, education, and making sure people of any age aren’t held back because they didn’t have access to the tools needed to advance.

If you had to do your journey to getting published all over again, what would you do differently? Spend more time studying how to launch a book. I’d also figure out social media first and learn more about Internet marketing.

Ebook or print? And why? Equal split. I love the feel and smell of books in my hands (especially old ones). I also love the convenience of reading on my phone whenever the opportunity presents itself.

What is your favorite scene in this book? That’s a tough one since I have many favorites. At seventeen, Rena avoids relationships and focuses on earning a scholarship to escape her life. I especially love the scene where she realizes she’s falling for a guy who can’t touch her.



AUTHOR Bio and Links:


C.C. Bolick grew up in south Alabama, where she’s happy to still reside. She’s an engineer by day and a writer by night—too bad she could never do one without the other.


Camping, fishing… she loves the outdoors and the warm Alabama weather. For years she thought up stories to write and finally started putting them on paper back in 2006. If you hear her talking with no one to answer, don’t think she’s crazy. Since talking through her stories works best, a library is her worst place to write… even though it’s her favorite!


C.C. loves to mix sci-fi and paranormal—throw in a little romance and adventure and you’ve got her kind of story. She’s written nine books including the Leftover Girl series, The Agency series, and The Fear Chronicles.


The Book is on sale for $0.99 during the tour.

Are any of the characters based on real people that you know?

C.C. Bolick 10/22/2019 - 4:29 pm

It’s hard to write real characters without using personal experience, but I never give characters the same names as people I know. That might be kind of awkward 🙂

This book was fun to write and I hope people enjoy Rena’s story. I just finished book number two of Rena’s adventures. I can’t help but enjoy her adventures on the run from a secret government agency and her journey to figuring out her power.

Thanks for asking, Kim. I just finished book 2 in this series, Fear Power, which will release in November. Currently I’m planning book #3, along with a new paranormal series.
