At first glance, or stare, Ariel Jonas is eye-candy. Nope. Smart, strong, confident. Dedicated to her music and saving the environment. Ariel stands tall, shoulders back. Comfortably. Like a veteran soldier. Or regal like a queen. She always looks like she belongs at the head of the table.
In the Chronicals
Readers first meet Ariel, in “The Joys of Revenge Therapy” in a Meetup group with six other college women who also had been damaged. After being raped by an NYU guy she thought she loved, and Frat guys she thought were her friends, Ariel doesn’t know whom she can trust if anyone.
The young musical prodigy is a broken person. So broken, the naive young girl is almost comatose. She can do nothing but cry.
The Thumpers take her in. Rearrange her psyche. Train her in revenge. Revenge is the answer. When people messed with her, she would destroy them as the Thumpers did to Ramrod the Roofie rapist, who had raped and robbed Kilani.
In “Thetis Threat” Ariel’s billionaire father, Davis Jonas leads the corporate violators trying to build the floating city-state of Thetis. Magnificent, but a potential ecological disaster that could destroy the ocean.
That ecological disaster is the subject of Paulina‘s documentary. Pauly goes undercover at the construction site to do research. She is captured. The Thumpers rescue her, destroy the floating city, in the process killing scores of mercenaries defending it.
Ariel was happy about what they’d done. She felt justified. It broke the last link that tied her to her father. The Thumpers were now her family. She was still a billionaire in her own right, but she was no longer under her father’s thumb or protection. On her own, but with Pauly and Thumpers, she had her safe place.
In “Rippling Ocean of Dust”, Ariel is the main protagonist for the first time in the Chronicals.
She finds herself “outside the Jonus bubble” for only the second time in her life. She is trapped in the real world, all by herself. Ariel is a stranger in a strange land. She has nothing. No money. No connections. No support groups. And no experience to get her through.
She doesn’t know who she is without all that. She is truly “Lost in the Dust”. She has to fight her way past the self-pity she feels. She psyches up to face reality head-on. She needs a plan she doesn’t have. But must if she hopes to survive.
