here's a link to the OPENING CHAPTER of Watcher (war world #2) by Mike Philbin, hosted on Goodreads.
Millions of people (like me) go missing every year. We just seem to be able to drop off the map. We just seem to be able to erase ourselves from the historical record. We're never found again. We don't exist any more. We are no longer part of what normal folk call Society. We are the walked by, the ignored, the abandoned. Nobody sees us, we go unnoticed. Never to return. And sometimes, people (like me) decide to go looking for those lost souls.
