Andrea Perno is a Sci-fi writer with Beau Coup publishing and a full time Art teacher at KIPP Ujima Village Academy in Baltimore City. She was born and raised in Pennsylvania and Florida, and currently resides in Maryland with her husband and two cats.
Her first book, The Last Drop was incredible, I loved every page. So imagine my excitement when I discovered she’d recently published a new book, ‘Remotely Unplugged’.
Technology is all around us. Humanity is becoming hopelessly bound by it. What if a society were built exclusively with dependence on technology? An existence where all the information you need is literally plugged into your head?
Sarah finds herself within this world, craving for change, but all she sees is a mindless compliance to the technology around her. Her unwillingness to follow the status quo has landed her in trouble and there are those who have had enough of her meddling.
In an effort to correct Sarah’s mal-compliance issues, she is taken to a remote facility to be “unplugged.” “Reset” in an effort to make her conform to the world around her. But hers is not a simple reset and what she discovers once she arrives will not only put her in mortal danger, but will also unravel a truth far beyond her expectations.
**NOTE: I’ll be reading ‘Remotely Unplugged’ and posting a review sometime soon.
Fans of Science Fiction and Dystopic Fiction will LOVE Andrea Perno’s work. ‘The Last Drop’ was a joy to read.
Synopsis: Jeremy always said Space Academy was Earth’s last hope. People only dream of leaving a dying planet in search of better lives. Avery never expected he would be forced to do just that.
On the heels of his brother’s murder, his father’s disappearance and Earth’s dwindling water supply now contaminated with a deadly virus, Avery and his younger brother have no choice but to leave Earth behind and join the survivors migrating the nearest habitable planet.`
What they don’t know is that the rarity of water extends far beyond Earth and they aren’t the only ones fighting for survival.
Exceptional book! Well written, exceptionally detailed, and characters that are so human they leap off the page – even the ones who aren’t. Humanity is dying, the Earth is dying, and humans have established a colony on a new planet – Panacea. The only problem is that the native beings don’t necessarily want us there. Think: Ender’s Game meets Avatar.
I loved everything about this book – including its ending. One of the best books of 2015 hands down! This is book one in a trilogy. The second book will purportedly be out sometime late summer. You can bet your bottom dollar that I’m waiting with bated breath to have it loaded on my Paperwhite! I’m certain it, too, will be a #MustRead!
