Synopsis

Young Servant of the State Marcus Savitch lives on Redwood, a restricted outer planet in the Janus String where humans are confined to one isolated city. Extraordinarily bright, a computer hacker and spaceship pilot, Marcus holds a dark secret. Afflicted with hematophagia, a forbidden condition compelling him to feed on blood, he lives in constant fear of eradication by the State. When his secret is exposed, he escapes and heads toward the giant trees at Redwood’s center. There, despite restrictions, a team of specialists from New Texas has been conducting clandestine research for decades on the mysterious creatures living deep in the forest. When revolution erupts on the outer planets, Marcus finds himself going back to the city he escaped from, this time with a small army at his side.

***Shelley C – #NerdGirlRed’s  Review***
This was an easy read. I sat down and read it through in just a few hours. It was fun, some what emotional, very intriguing, and most definitely worth reading. The characters are well written and easily likeable or easy to hate depending on what side they were on. My favorite part of the world building is how the author created a whole new environment yet made it relatable to the reader. Kids will definitely enjoy this story as well as any adult who enjoys a light action science fiction tale. Also, if your heart belongs to Texas, you have to read this!! (no spoilers) I can’t wait to read the second book in this series and I hope to see a lot more of the fabulous triplets!
