By 2015 the streets of Los Angeles have been transformed from a thriving metropolis to a hostile world ravaged by demons bent on assimilating the human race. Standing between this total apocalypse of humanity and their chance for survival is 19 year old Remy Martin.
A warrior in her own right, trained to think on her feet and kill if the situation requires, she is flanked by her older brother and younger sister. Together, they devise a plan to take back the streets. Against the wishes of their father, who commands the resistance forces, they venture into unknown realms of the supernatural in a race against time with the fate of the entire world in their young hands.
Join them on their mission into darkness where death lies around every corner, it is virtually impossible to distinguish your enemies from your allies, and a single mistake could result in the annihilation of everyone you've ever known and loved.

Review of Oceans of Red (Volume One) by Willow Cross
Reviewed for Young Adult Novel Reader Blog Tour Oct. 13 2012
The “Oceans of Red” series I consider to be an entirely new perspective on the usual hum-drum Dystopian or Apocalyptic routine. Make no mistake, I really enjoy these sub-genres, but the same old same old approach gets old. Author Willow Cross delivers a kick with a new concept: the majority of humans have become possessed by-demons! Yes, demons! Not zombies, not vampires, not shapeshifters-see, I told you something new!!
The Resistance leader Admiral Martin has two daughters and a son, all active in the Resistance movement battling the Demonic takeover of Los Angeles and the surrounding area. Remy and older brother Greg are brawny kick-butt and take no prisoners warriors; fifteen-year-old Shane is beyond genius level, a biophysicist who in a normal world, would likely be well on her way to the Nobel Prize. All three must parse out a new approach, thinking outside of the usual framework, because the tried-and-true just isn’t stopping these demon invaders.
