The Drift

Book 1 of The Drift Series

The Drift

In a future where the human race has split into three species, the mentally-evolved Illuminatos have conquered the other two in a brutal Evolutionary War. Now, the seven most powerful Illuminatos, the Council, control the Earth, ruling over the other two human species through violent oppression.


As one of the defeated physically-evolved Corporis, Samara lost everything: her family, her freedom, and her will to fight. But when her master, Lord Wyatt Faraday, commands her to find the mysterious leader of the Resistance, Tristan, everything she thought she knew is challenged.


Tristan is an Illuminatos who has turned his back on his own kind to follow his principles. An idealist hoping to restore peace and equality for all species, he cannot escape his past, and it may force him to make a terrible choice.


Their meeting will change the world, but will it be for the better?

About the Author

Casie grew up in a small, rural town in North Dakota where she passed the long winters devouring books of all genres and playing video games with her big brother. After a school project required creating her first story to share, she fell in love with how fiction is capable of touching the hearts and minds of others. Her passion for writing only grew stronger over the years, and she published her debut novel, The Drift, in March of 2021.

The author still lives in North Dakota with her amazingly patient husband, incredible daughter, and a very silly miniature dachshund. When not reading or writing, chances are, she's either spending time with family, baking, or boxing.
