To celebrate the release of the final instalment in Byddi Lee’s gripping Dystopian trilogy, we’re going back to where it all started in Rejuvenation!
Publication Date: March 23, 2020
Genre: Dystopian Sci-Fi
Publisher: Castrum Press
The Melter War has left the Earth’s surface devastated, leaving humanity to survive on what little land is left between the Scorch Zones and the rising oceans, where towering scubscrapers dot the dystopian shorelines.
Bobbie Chan is a doctor caring for the ultra-elderly in one such subscraper when she notices a mysterious, new disease afflicting her patients; some show signs of age reversal before a catastrophic, and often fatal, cardiac arrest strikes.
Bobbie begins to wonder if she is witnessing a bio weapon in full force. A Melter attack? Are they destined to finish the war they started?
Bobbie begins a race against time to rescue the Rejuvenees and uncover their true enemy
I am so excited I started this trilogy now, because the third book is already out, and now I don’t have to wait to read the rest. This is an amazing start to a dystopian/scifi trilogy. I am obsessed already.
Byddi Lee knows how to world build. I was immediately drawn into this story. Twenty years after aliens attack the earth, life is not going well. Population control means no one can have children unless someone in the family dies…which puts people in very difficult positions.
The plot is intense and unique. I couldn’t put this down. Fast paced with awesome characters and a world that is so realistic feeling, it’s scary to think about.
This emotional rollercoaster is so worth the read. Highly recommended!
