A senior at the University of Alabama, this is Christian Edwards’ first published work. On the horizon are her debut novel, The Mafia Diaries, and Freefall, a sequel to Skyfall.
“An uprise and a war. That's all it took for the government to strip society of their freedom. An uprise and a war was all it took to give the government access to everyone's dreams and thoughts. It took an uprise and a war to change Katherine Sullivan's life forever.
A futuristic dystopia society is split into two divisions based on income status.
Rich girl Katherine has her life turned upside down when she's kidnapped by a handsome poor boy who claims to work for someone very close to her and ordered to bring her to Skyfall to complete Operation Zero.”
A short story that sets up a unique dystopian world, introduces us to some interesting characters, and takes us through a few conflicts. The resolution of the main conflict in this story leaves the reader hanging a bit, as it sets up what appears to be the start of the planned sequel. All in all a fun little read.
