V.V.V. Trilogy

V.V.V. Trilogy is a story about a struggle against authority and adulthood, coming to terms with one’s own choices, consequences and repercussions told through the genre of science-fiction and fantasy fused together.  In a way, it is a coming-of age story through heart-ache, hard ship.  Facing a boiling internal conflict and harsh external struggles.

Oliver is a demi-god, his mother hid this from him, for his own protection and his own detriment.  Various antagonists seek to take advantage of his naivete, his impressionable stature and his potential for sheer power. In the end, is the choice ever his own? Oliver struggles with the concepts of physical freedom and free-will.
