“The Lost Code will satisfy teens’ thirst for post-apocalyptic dystopian novels with just the right amount of suspense, adventure, science fiction, fantasy, and romance, but without the brutal violence found in other stories. Readers will eagerly devour Owen’s tale and look forward to its continuation.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))
“The ending of the book leaves plenty of room for the sequel, and readers will likely be intrigued enough to continue.” (School Library Journal)
“A smart dystopian adventure packed with mind-blowing fantasy and characters you’ll love.” (Michael Grant, New York Times Bestselling Author of the Gone series)
“The Lost Code will stop your heart with scenes of passion and power, as it draws you in to a group of kids who are the only hope in a dying world of artifice and desperation. What happens to them is like nothing you’ve ever read.” (Peter Lerangis, NYT Bestselling author of two books in the 39 Clues series, and co-author of Somebody, Please Tell Me Who I Am)
“The broad strokes of conflict and characterization make this a movie-ready action flick at heart...an accessible entree to the dystopia trend.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)
What is oldest will be new, what was lost shall be found.
The ozone is ravaged, ocean levels have risen, and the sun is a daily enemy.
But global climate change is not something new in the Earth's history.
No one will know this better than less-than-ordinary Owen Parker, who is about to discover that he is the descendant of a highly advanced ancient race—a race that took their technology too far and almost destroyed the Earth in the process.
Now it is Owen's turn to make right in his world what went wrong thousands of years ago. If Owen can unlock the lost code in his very genes, he may rediscover the forgotten knowledge of his ancestry . . . and that less-than-ordinary can evolve into extraordinary.
