Book Description

Ava's journey continues as she searches inside the mainframe to find Chief Morray. She locates his archive files, sending her way back to the early days. Society was collapsing but young, idealistic William Morray had hoped his father’s acclaimed Repatterning Program––a precursor to the brilliant New Agenda––could manage the upheaval and get things back on track. They said the Repatterning was for the greater good, but like most advertising, it was a lie. The horrifying plan entailed eradicating all cities, homes and people outside of the Elite citizenship. William Morray joins an underground rebel alliance to end the Repatterning and save what’s left of civilization. Amazon Best Seller in Post-Apocalyptic and Dystopian Science Fiction.

The New Agenda is a fantastically fun read. - Little Miss Bookmark

Simone Pond has outdone herself. The characters she writes about are so vivid they leap off the page. - Amie's Book Reviews

The book is clever, exciting, and takes no prisoners. It's a harsh and fascinating world and I loved it. - Outlaw Poet

˃˃˃ Here's what readers are saying:


- "The New Agenda" is a beautifully written prequel to "The City Center". The unpredictability blew me away. The story has unexpected twists, realistic human traits, and a frightening reality.

- I loved this book, getting to see some history as to what eventually led to the lives being lived in The City Center. I tore through this book in one sitting because I just could not put it down!! It's seriously that good!!!

- If you like good sci-fi and individual thought from an author that tells a story in a unique and undefined manner, this book is for you. If you like good fiction that you will dive into, this book is for you. If you geek out on complex characters, this book is for you. If you dig dark angles, this book is for you.

- Great story, very entertaining. I really enjoyed reading this book, the only drawback was that it kept me up way past my bedtime. Can't wait for the next installment.

- Getting to see the backstory of what shaped the character of William Morray was fantastic. If you've read the first book, "The City Center" (which you should!) then you understand where he ends up, but not how he got there. They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and the world of "The New Agenda" truly illustrates that. The pacing is great, it held my interest and stayed exciting throughout, and it threw in some unexpected turns while keeping me intrigued for the next installment. Highly recommend.

- I promise that you will truly enjoy "The New Agenda" but both books fit so seamlessly together that they read quite well in either direction. You gotta' read both of them.... but you can start with either "The City Center" or "The New Agenda" and still completely enjoy the story.

- The New Agenda is a fantastically fun read. I highly suggest reading City Center first. Neither will disappoint. It's full of heroes to love, and villains to hate.

- “The New Agenda” fuses good ol’ fashion “coming-of-age” storytelling with “poop-hitting-the-fan” sci-fi and healthy sampling of “conspiracy theory” in this charged, thought-provoking and page-turning yarn.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"I liked the first book in this series, City Center. This continues the story, but it has a different, more personal and urgent feel. The apocalypse is bad news, but unlike most apocalypse stories, things are not completely doom and/or gloom. There is plenty of misery for apocalypse fans to consume." - Revolution SF

5.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative prequel that keeps you connected June 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a fun book and a unique approach to the prequel format. Rather than simply set the back-story in a boring or traditional way, we learn about what led the City Center to ruin by first meeting Morray as a teenager. The back back-story, if you will.
I won't add any spoilers...I'll just say that it was a well-thought out perspective that was unexpected, exciting and intriguing. Weaving the story of Ava and Joseph into the plot kept us connected with where The City Center had left off.
Looking forward to learning more about these characters!

I read the City Center when it came out last year and immediately wanted a back story. The first book gave me the setting of what is to come, but I, like most dystopia nerds, wanted to know how it got that way. The New Agenda gave me that, but in a way that I wasn't expecting. For one, I didn't see the plot twisting the way it did. Never saw that coming. That is big points for me as a fan. And secondly, it was told in a way that is not so prequel-y, almost as if the writer decided to think for herself and not simply follow the same formulaic BS 2nd book direction that so many other books fall victim to.

I won't give any plot details away (because who wants that from a review?), but I will tell you that I started this book on an afternoon and finished it the following evening. If not for sleep and work getting in the way it'd have been done sooner. Absolute obsession to get to the next page as I read it and already am tweaking for the next book. (when is it coming out?)

If you like good scifi and individual thought from an author that tells a story in a unique and undefined manner, this book is for you. If you like good fiction (I hope this is fiction) that you will dive into, this book is for you. If you geek out on complex characters, this book is for you. If you dig dark angles, this book is for you. If you're an idiot or want the expected BS of crappier versions of this genre, this book is one you desperately need.

I reviewed Simone Pond's first book in this series "The City Center" and gave it 5 stars. I really loved that book. Now with the publication of her second book I'm kinda at a loss because all I get is 5 stars. I wish there were more stars to award for this prequel..maybe like 7 stars!! It's really that good! What I found to be most amazing was that in the first book Ms. Pond's "voice" is mostly that of a young woman named Ava, but in the second book she mostly uses the "voice" of a young man. That is no small feat and Ms. Pond pulls it off effortlessly. Not just that but that young man transforms from a completely un-redeemable villain in the first book into tortured hero in the prequel...... Yet another amazing display of really, really good writing!
I promise that you will truly enjoy "The New Agenda" but both books fit so seamlessly together that they read quite well in either direction. You gotta' read both of them.... but you can start with either "The City Center" or "The New Agenda" and still completely enjoy the story.
Great story and really first-class writing!... and I only get to award 5 stars? Not fair!
Buy both "The New Agenda" and "The City Center" ..You can thank me later!

The New Agenda is a fantastically fun read. I highly suggest reading City Center first. Neither will disappoint. It's full of heroes to love, and villains to hate. You know the option on Facebook to choose your relationship status as "it's complicated?" Well this takes it to a whole new level. The setting is futuristic yet realistic. Sadly, it's not too far from the truth. This evil destruction and plotting could be happening in Washington right now. In fact, I'm sure it is. To some degree. Yikes. Well, at least I'm somewhat prepared now.
If you enjoy futuristic apocalyptic novels, filled with explosions and plot twists, lightly salted with baby mama drama and daddy issues, you'll love this! Can't wait for book 3!!!! Mrs. Pond is an amazing writer. I wish I could travel inside her brain. I imagine it's a fun factory in there. Cheers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Followup! December 28, 2014
Format:Paperback
I picked this one up immediately after I finished the first book in the series (The City Center). I really enjoyed the first installment and I had high hopes for the second ... thank goodness Simone Pond delivered!! I can think of quite a few impossibly popular series where the 2nd book was almost the kiss of death. It seems like authors write a popular novel and then when they get to the next in the series, they just totally crap on the entire thing and it leaves you wondering why you fell in love with the first novel! Anyhow ... authors: Don't do that.

Whew. Now lets get on with things ... I just loved this book. I enjoyed it quite a bit more than the first and I really, really liked that one. The funny thing is that I was speaking to the author about this second book and she said that she loved writing it. Well, you can tell. This book was intricately written with quite a few twists and turns that kept me on my toes from the very first page to the last period.

Thankfully, the characters didn't change one iota - they were still the same as they were I left them in the first book. Although ... I did find myself liking a character that I absolutely abhorred in the last book. I even tried to talk myself out of liking him because of how much I detested him in The City Center but it didn't take. That's okay ... the way this character changed and developed made the story that much better and I wouldn't have had it any other way.

Keep in mind, as good as this book was, this is not one of those series where you can just pick up the 2nd book and then jump around. You need to read them in order otherwise you will be totally confused.

I'm super excited to see what the 3rd novel has in store for me!!
