Tera knows a secret…

Someone is going to die on election day. But that’s not what worries her.

She learned the secret from a dying spark, one of the fairy-like companions people in her world use to communicate, and she found the spark in her father’s office.

A radical leader is on the rise, and the old factions are determined to stop him at any cost. If anyone finds out her father’s involved, it might be the end of him. If anyone finds out what she knows, it might be the end of her.

The only way to keep her city, her family, and her life from ripping apart is to follow the spark deeper into this deadly game of politics that no one can know she’s playing.

Her only advantage is her obscurity. She has no following. No one listens to her or even knows her name. But that’s about to change.

Dave Walker has created an immersive fantasy world that feels eerily familiar, and in so doing he has crafted a prescient vision of society completely connected. Through a young woman’s eyes we ponder the ever-growing tensions looming between technology and humanity, knowledge and power, fear and love. A must read!
