After the Great Death wiped out almost all life on earth, those who survived had to rebuild. They created the world of the Lake of Sins. A society of human-animal hybrids where pure humans hold all the power and class distinction means the difference between life and death.Hundreds of years later, Trinity has little knowledge of the earth of the past. She is a Producer and they are responsible for growing all the food for the other classes. Harvest is over and that means that it’s time for the less-than-perfect teens to be removed from camp. Trinity is far from perfect, but that’s okay. Being taken is just another stage of a Producer’s life. Her fear lies in her inability to make friends.

She’s not like the other Producers. She’s hidden her differences her entire life, but even though they’ve never seen her fangs or claws, the others sense her strangeness. She concocts a plan to sneak into the forest and discover where the teenagers are taken every year. Once she learns that secret, the other kids will be dying to talk to her and once they do they’ll see that inside she’s just like them.

Escaping into the forest is simple; she’s done it before, but at night the forest is different and so is the feeling that she's being followed. After discovering a strange, human-fish creature dying on the river bank, her adventure spirals out of her control.

The ruling classes' Guards catch her scent and are on the hunt. While evading them she’s captured by a predator long thought to be extinct. An unlikely friendship forms and when she discovers the horrible fate of the teenage Producers she must choose between betraying her new friends and saving her mother and those who never accepted her.

Lake of Sins: Escape is Lord of the Rings meets The Island of Dr. Moreau where Dr. Moreau’s creations hunt and eat the Hobbits.
