Blissful Ignorance book cover

blessed ignorance opens in 2030 after the death of Levar Busara, a visionary known for inventing the Striders, the world’s first true androids. With the loss of the eldest Busaras, their children Naaji and Jabari are left to mourn while stepping away from creating a magnum opus to rival that of their late father. However, the young inventors soon find themselves entangled in a bloodthirsty secret society that wants their life’s work. Naaji and Jabari must take a stand against the odds to save not only themselves, but the world as they know it.
