A runaway princess with elemental powers stumbles upon a thousands-year-old archive of ancient tech that will forever change her utopian kingdom.
The citizens of Amera are blessed with a range of extraordinary powers ¬– from telepathy and healing to growing plants and breathing under water. As descendants of genetically modified humans desperate to survive an ice age, Amerans have built a peaceful, prosperous kingdom uniting nine realms, each with their own king and queen.
Violet is a princess of Neyr, the third of the nine realms of Amera, living in the transformed ruins of ancient New York City, high up in the reborn Chrysler building. Born into Neyr’s talented ruling family, she struggles to show evidence of any special power herself. Raised by one of the most powerful healers in Ameran history, Violet wants more than anything to pass her Criterion, a test all citizens must take to prove they are worthy and to find their place in society. But when her powers explode to catastrophic effect in front of her entire court, she runs from the unthinkable damage and misery she has caused.
In her desperate escape, Violet stumbles upon an incredible archive of ancient knowledge and awakens Hailey, an artificial intelligence relic who reveals hidden truths that could be the key to her return home.
But when the sanctuary of the Amera is threatened by humans, old enemies of Amera who live in violent colonies beyond Amera’s borders, Violet must master her burgeoning powers and find a way to protect her idyllic kingdom from the outside world.
A thrilling, action-packed blend of Young Adult fantasy and post-apocalyptic science fiction. Perfect for fans of the Lunar Chronicles and Shatter Me series.
“This first volume in the Evolutionaries series skillfully balances intriguing worldbuilding, whose details are slowly revealed, with well-paced action sequences. It also ably handles Violet’s character development along the way, while also offering a diverse, lovable supporting cast whose members become the protagonist’s close friends and allies. The novel effectively addresses themes of cooperation and isolationism, as well as autonomy, consent, and moving on with one’s life after learning of long-held secrets.” excerpt from Kirkus Review about Power Divided.
- What is on your nightstand?
There is always a fresh bottle of water, and a bottle of vitamin E. I like to pop the capsules and use them as moisturizer. I do take them too as part of my health regimen.
- What author would you totally fan?
Julie Kagawa, Marissa Meyer, Jonathan Maberry, Sarah Larson, Marie Lu, was I supposed to pick one? Sorry haha!
- What makes you cringe?
Disingenuous people, microphone feedback, the inability to help someone suffering.
- Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
I have two jobs so I have to plan out my writing since it’s an obsession. I can’t think about it unless I have at least a week to really put to it. So, I do spend time outline other aspects of the writing process, like worldbuilding, character backgrounds, and if I do have anything that comes to mind I write it down. But when I sit to write, I take those ideas and let them run wild and see what I have to do to get them to fit properly, so it’s kind of like a gardener style, where you have a plan, let it grow then prune back what needs to be.
- Is there a word you love to use?
