The Ex-Pacifist Book One: Matsumoto Trilogy
Vera and her bodyguard, Roman, are connected by the computers in their heads. They can silently co-ordinate and comment on the world around them. The downside? They’re on an impossible mission set by a vengeful emperor who would prefer to see them both dead. Not many sixteen-year-olds have to fight an entire empire for survival – and not many would be so good at it.
A young adult science fiction thriller with epic themes of family, duty, and conscience, a diverse cast, non-stop action and romantic subplots that echo the work of S. J. Kincaid’s “The Diabolic” or Suzanne Collins’ “The Hunger Games.”
What to expect:
Adventure, politics, romance, a love triangle, dystopian themes, a hot-house princess with a lot of character development ahead of her, a coming of age story set against a futuristic back-drop. This is first-person genre fiction, definitely on the soft-science side of things. It is just the first story in a series of three (all of which are available) so don’t expect all plot-lines to wrap up.
