Coretta Scott King


Vinci Book I Cover.jpg


Renaldo A. Cooper

Dante just wants to be normal again. Viral videos and feed posts about super humans bid for social importance with the Merovin family’s technological takeover. Human lab rats, secret government police, cryptids, witches and rival gangs strangle the innocence out of Forest City, Illinois.

 The battle between VINCI and Forest City sleeps at a stalemate. However, Dante has much to learn about living outside of his Paint Titan comfort zone. He and his allies will confront new villains, old rivals, each other and ultimately, themselves.

This is the second installment to the VINCI series.
