The world is dying. In an alternate universe where the British-founded Itherian empire is the world’s dominating power, anyone not of pure Itherian blood is shunned and forced to live in poverty-stricken mega-cities called Shenis that only exist to provide power and comfort to the wealthy Plessy cities. All of which is enforced by the Government’s super-soldier program, known as: Valkyrie. Adrenaline Rush is J.C. Butcher’s engrossing adventure into alternate history and futurescape, into a world ruled by intrigue and unforgiving monolithic strength which his young hero must survive and conquer.

Vincent Faust the Third, a child-billionaire of Itherian blood who’s the heir to the Technological-security mega-giant T.R.U.S.T has his life turned upside-down when his uncle Salvador incites a corporate-takeover and assassinates his father and mother, forcing the young boy to flee into the cold, harsh Sheni streets. After struggling to survive with his little brother in such a strange new world, Vincent meets Chris, a member of an anti-government mercenary organization known as TFA who takes him under his wing and trains him to gain the power needed to take on an empire.

With the government hunting him, and his old life gone, Vincent’s first chapter begins with vengeance…against an oppressive regime and the family that betrayed him…but will he survive long enough to even see the beginning of the coming war? The world as we know it seems a pale, ghostly companion to this one that J.C. Butcher has created. Adrenaline Rush reels out its alternate history and takes readers to Vincent’s ultra-violent and highly dangerous present, an authentic rendering of visions of the coming Apocalypse that haunt the congested urban conglomerations of human civilization. It is a vision of the future which happens today.
