Title: Captive by the Fog
Genre: LGBT Contemporary SciFi
Sam feels like a prisoner within her life until one foggy evening, when she is captured by beings from another world along with a group of strangers. Among these strangers is an eccentric father, David, separated from the rest of his family, and Kisana, a woman with a captivating smile and a timid secret.
As they are held within a San Francisco school gymnasium, Sam and her fellow captives are told they are merely under surveillance, and that in order to survive, they must trust these creatures who won't show themselves. The group has no choice but to do so, and believe in the hope of eventual freedom.
Trust disintegrates when Sam begins to experience violent, prophetic dreams about other citizens held captive across the city. The source of these dreams is not clear, but the message, and the sound of crumbling skyscrapers, is. The aliens are destroying the population.
Kisana's secret starts to unravel, and the two women find an escape within their passion. But passion isn't enough. Sam's dreams continue to haunt her. One final dream about David's family dying in an explosion pushes the prisoners to the edge of desperation.
David, grief-stricken, lashes out against the aliens. Sam finds herself fighting against him, now a friend, in order to protect everyone. A life is lost. Kisana retreats back into her past. Sam teeters off desperation's edge, and she must save herself--with a little help from the controller of her dreams.
