Broken Shards of Time



Nyah Nichol

The Uncommon Quest 2019 Gold Winner

Wren Derecho is the lone survivor of a mysterious accident that took the lives of her parents. As Wren tries to navigate through the pain of grief and loss, she crosses paths with three other individuals and soon realizes that something beyond coincidence has intertwined their lives. 

Each of their journeys is marked by immense tragedy, fate, a time machine, and a mysterious power source that seems to be alive . . . and not from this world.

From the perspective of these four characters, you’ll find the heart of the story lies within the growth of love, trust, and friendship developed from adventure, adversity, and a common mission: to rescue their friend and save their city from an unseen yet familiar force. Wren and her team quickly discover that the hero of any story can easily become the villain.

She’s about to face her greatest enemy: her future self.
