Consensus: Part 1 – Citizen

by Jason Tesar

In a society where morals are determined by a public opinion system, and social rating is the currency, truth can be a dangerous notion.

Sixteen-year-old Rena has few memories of her childhood before adoption. A forest teeming with wildlife. Mountains reaching up to a blue sky. The voice of the man who raised her.

The problemâ??they’re not real. Such things don’t exist in Esh, a self-governed metropolis shielded from the harsh environment by a transparent canopy. And beyond the city is only the Barrens, an endless wasteland of fog and freezing rain.

When Rena’s violent instincts save the lives of her friends, her delusional past begins disrupting her prospects for the future. To find the source of her impulses, she’ll have to sort through the fragments in her mind. What awaits is a connection between her true identity, the city’s forgotten history, and the secret war being waged beneath the surface of her polite society.

The Starborn Uprising: Books 1, 2, and 3 (The Starborn Saga)

by Jason D. Morrow

Out Of Darkness
It has been sixty years since society as we know it was destroyed. People are forced to band together in isolated villages to hide from the predatory greyskinsâ??the once humans that will eat anything that moves. But sometimes, hiding isn’t enough.

Nineteen-year-old Mora leaves her grandmother, little brother, and the rest of her village to seek out the man who can offer protectionâ??Jeremiah. Along the way, she meets two brothers, Connor and Aaron who help her discover that she has a new ability within herselfâ??the power of the Starborn. And there are others like her.

But these super-humans are on a mission: to kill Jeremiah. They claim that the man who offers protection for everyone is a murderer with dangerous secrets. Mora must now choose between the man who claims he can keep her village safe, and those who can show her who she really is.

If It Kills Me
Overconfidence has no place in a world where the dead rule. Nineteen-year-old Mora has learned this the hard way. After a conflict in the colony of Salem that left hundreds of people dead, Mora and her Starborn allies have been branded as fugitives by Jeremiah, the leader of Screven.

Now, Mora must prove to the world that she isn’t the enemy, and that hope for the future lies with the Starborns, not Jeremiah. To do that, she must find out the truth behind the origins of the dreaded greyskins that roam the Earth, attacking villages relentlessly.

But more than that, she must protect her family. The Starborns attempt to set up a base at her home, Springhill, but it only brings more turmoil. With a mentor channeling her dreams of the past, and two rival brothers fighting for her love, Mora learns of a new enemy that threatens to bring them down before the revolution can even begin.

Even In Death
Green, you’re clean. Red, you’re dead.

Nineteen-year-old Mora is haunted by the flashing red light that pronounces her doom. Now she knows she only has about twenty-four hours to defeat Jeremiah and finish the revolution she has started, before the greyskin virus claims her life.

To do this, she must lead the other Starborns through the war-torn streets of Screven. But Jeremiah has a secret power that will test Mora in ways she could have never imagined.

Journey to the Centre of the Earth (Illustrated)

by Jules Verne

“Go down the crater of the volcano Snaefells. Follow the shadow just before the month of July. You will find your way to the center of the Earth. I did it.” That mysterious message, found in a long-lost letter, propels a young man and his uncle on the adventure of a lifetime: to a prehistoric world below the earth where dinosaurs and other strange creatures still roam.

Jules Verne’s classic 1864 sci-fi novel tells the story of German professor Otto Lidenbrock who believes there are volcanic tubes going toward the center of the Earth. He, his nephew Axel, and their guide Hans descend into the Icelandic volcano Snaefellsjökull, encountering many adventures, including prehistoric animals and natural hazards, before eventually coming to the surface again in southern Italy, at the Stromboli volcano.

Journey has been read by millions of inquisitive minds and has influenced some of the worlds most famous explorers such as Admiral Byrd, who announced on his 1926 expedition to the North Pole that “it is Jules Verne who is bringing me.”

Renowned cave explorer Norbert Casteret said in 1938 that A Journey to the Center of the Earth was a “marvelous book which impressed and fascinated me more than any other. I have re-read it many times, and I confess I sometimes re-read it still, each time finding anew the joys and enthusiasm of my childhood.”
