From the Author

I'd yet to find a Young Adult Science-Fiction novel that captivated my imagination and wild sense of wonder so completely that I couldn't put it down, so I decided to write one. I hope you love it. xoxo


Excerpt:

A gasp from the crowd tugs at me, and I  open my eyes. "Dad, look..." a teenage boy says. His eyes start at my newly  rolled dreads, hanging heavy around my shoulders and down my back, then travel  to my drawn-on markings. I remembered the way my father's appeared when his  marks returned - starting at the corners of his eyes and splaying out into the  shape of a half-butterfly on each side - so I recreated it with blue eyeliner.The boy's eyes drop lower to my gladiator garb: a metal chest plate with  straps around the shoulders and torso, and a skirt made from strips of  leather.

My intention was to represent all today,everything that makes me who I am: the races that were torn apart by hatred and  greed, but will hopefully be reunited in truth.

And I think I've accomplished it.

I shift on my bare feet as the others  turn to look at me one by one. Awe registers in their expressions, then within  a slice of a second their awe launches into venomous hatred.

At first I want to recoil and back away,but I feel myself lock into place, jaw set, eyes focusing on the floor and Luxxe  whispering in my ear, Show them you'renot afraid.

I will.
