The Astral Hacker

In 2120, New America is the world leader in technology and individual freedom. Why, then, has seventeen-year-old Fae Luna felt like an isolated prisoner her entire life? She survived the worst of the foster care system by honing her skills as a top-level hacker and thanks to the support of her humanoid robot, Sunny, who is illegally upgraded to a human-level AI. Finally, she’s matched with a foster mom who treats her kindly. Fae slowly lets her guard down until a suspicious tragedy tears them apart. With no flesh-and-blood friends, she is forced to call Blaze, a guild-mate from her online holo-game, who introduces her to a motley crew of rebels and loyalists. When they dig into Fae’s mystery, they discover a far-reaching and deadly conspiracy. Fae promised her dying mother she would never alter her body with a brain implant, but with the Evo, her hacking skills would be unbeatable. Lethal battles and devastating consequences will challenge her vow. Will Fae choose the enhancement or trust her own exceptional mind to defeat a secretive and powerful force threatening all New Americans?

The Phoenix Conspiracy. The Recruitment.

cover

Fans who love The Hunger Games and Divergent will be captivated by YA dystopian adventure, The Phoenix Conspiracy.

In this new release by K. Barnett, friendships and alliances are tested when the powers that be recruit teenagers against their will, to either become an army, or a peace corps in search of new land.

The Phoenix Conspiracy puts a new spin on a popular genre with fascinating characters and mysterious motivations.

This absorbing tale depicts a potentially real set of circumstances in which humans have destroyed Earth through global warming.

Set 380 years in the future and with a genetic twist, readers will discover who and what parts of society survive the apocalypse.

The future of mankind depends upon genetically modified humans who can fly, and a girl who will stop at nothing to be truly free. In a world consumed by water, there are those that believe beautiful and vast lands still exist somewhere beyond the storm ravaged oceans around their little island known as Continent One.
Alya and her friends abide by strict rules managed by a strong enforcement agency of Patrol officers that monitor and restrict their desire to fly, that is until they discover secret plans to conscript an army of their peers who will be forced to travel across the raging weather systems of Earth, in search of the new continent.
Along with shocking recruitment revelations comes Alya’s recognition of her evolving abilities to outfly her peers. So begin some dubious theories that she may have been illegally modified as part of the conspiracy to find new land by any means necessary—even if that risks Alya and her friends’ lives.

The Conspiracy Theory delivers on all fronts for adventure and mystery and will align with readers that enjoy characters in the midst of discovering their own fortitude and resilience.
