Sunscorched is the first novel in a young adult post-apocalyptic/dystopian series set in a gritty underground world. I'm so proud of this book, which won a Rosemary Award last year for excellence in young adult fiction. It's been a long time coming, but I hope you'll find the wait was worth it. Sunscorched, Book 1 in the Subterranean Series, is jam-packed with action, characters you're going to love, and twists you won't see coming.
I've already written Book 2 in the series, which is deep the editing process right now!
Terminal Combustion is on track to release in November.
So, without further ado, I am beyond thrilled to show you the cover of Sunscorched, which was designed by the lovely and talented Cary Smith.
Life can’t possibly get more treacherous than a violent sun allergy in a solar-blighted world. At least that’s what seventeen-year-old Nori Chisholm thought before news of an impending sunscorch delivered her death sentence.
Desperate to survive the scorch, she’s forced to shelter underground and discovers a secret subterranean world where life is hard, and so are the people. Betrayed and left for dead by the man who pledged to help her, Nori is sold to a gritty pit fighting ring. There she makes a friend—and plenty of enemies.
Sam Cooper’s motives are at times impenetrable, but speeding through the underground world on the back of his motorcycle is a dark freedom Nori can’t live without. On the run from a group of cutthroat rogues, their escape takes an unexpected twist. A shocking discovery shatters everything they thought they knew. Can they use the knowledge to save what’s left of the world?
Winner of the Rosemary Award for excellence in young adult fiction, Sunscorched is a tale of survival and self-discovery at breakneck speed. Fans of Bella Forrest and Marie Lu, who crave dangerous heroes and dark secrets, will love the Sunscorched world.
