Book Description

Sixteen-year-old Sulan Hom can't remember life before the Default -- the day the United States government declared bankruptcy. As a math prodigy, she leads a protected life, kept safe from the hunger and crime plaguing the streets of America. She attends the corporate-sponsored Virtual High School, an academy in Vex (Virtual Experience) for gifted children.

Beyond the security of Sulan's high-tech world, the Anti-American League wages a guerrilla war against the United States. Their leader, Imugi, is dedicated to undermining the nation's reconstruction attempts. He attacks anything considered a national resource, including corporations, food storage facilities -- and schools. Sulan witnesses the public execution of a teenage student and determines she must learn to defend herself. When her mother, a retired mercenary, refuses to help, Sulan takes matters into her own hands.

This young adult dystopia/cyberpunk novelette is an excerpt from the first novel in the series. Enjoy this introduction to the world of Sulan!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cyberpunk with attitude! February 26, 2013
By Mallory

This is a fast-paced young-adult cyberpunk romp with Sulan, the heroine, eager to grow up in a dark and dangerous future. The story has a nice edge and urban punkiness that makes for a fun and easy read. I look forward to more action and learning how the world works through the eyes of this young woman.

This is, of course not the entire story. It's simply a freebie to give you a taste of the real thing (which is affordably priced for the awesomeness of the adventure it contains). I LOVED Sulan: The League (of which The Cube is an excerpt).
It sucked me in right away. I couldn't put it down. Sulan was very relateable to me. She's very petite and feels helpless in the chaos of the world she lives in-- but she has the heart of a warrior and seeks to rectify her helplessness by secretly finding a way to overcome it. Despite what her mom's wishes for her to remain normal. She's got guts and really rocks what life hands her. She has priceless intellectual capabilities, but just wants to be seen like everyone else and not for the genius that she really is. I really thought there was a little romantic under-current developing and hope that it continues to play out that way in book 2.

More About the Author

Camille Picott is a fifth-generation Chinese American. She writes science fiction and fantasy books with Asian characters and/or Asian settings.

This, coupled with a passion for her heritage, is the reason she strives to bring some aspect of Eastern myth, legend, culture, and ethnicity to all of her writings.
