Atoma series (Book 1)
In 2050 Earth Inc. controls every aspect of life on a frozen planet at the tail end of a mini ice age.
It's my 16th year, just as it is for everyone in my class of Space Engineers, and that means our Citizen Celebration Day fast approaches. I am not looking forward to it, and as it happens I don't have to. The world as I know it comes to a shattering end when our air-shuttle crashes and I awake in hospital.
The AI treating me announces my DNA is banned. Then, my mother tells me about my biohack that she hid from the state as well as from me.
Not that any of that matters anymore. I am not a citizen. I have no rights. I'm a Zero.
When Earth Inc. catches up with me, they give me a choice. It's a labor camp for me, where I will be worked to death within a few short years. Either that or I train with other Zeros at a secretive research base for a high-risk expedition.
I have to know why I was made a Zero, and that means not only surviving the mission but discovering who I really am.
Atoma on Attaapa, Book II in the Atoma series is coming out soon.
