"The Plantation," by Stella Samiotou Fitzsimons

"Fantastic." "Page-turner." "Action-packed." "Refreshing." So say the readers of this highly-rated Young Adult post-apocalyptic novel. Just 99 cents today!

"This book was a great surprise, I loved the plot and the characters. The writing is exceptional, dealing with the eternal themes of loneliness and trying to fit in in a very original way. The main character - Freya - is one of the most vivid, intelligent portrayals of a young woman ever. She's strong and weak at the same time and she grows into maturity slowly but unmistakably. I love her interactions with Finn and Damian. There's a lot of action in the book as well as a lot of introspection. The mutant army -Sliman - are terrifying. If you like intelligence and emotional power in your young adult dystopias, this is definitely a book you should read." -- Amazon reviewer

The Plantation (Book 1), by Stella Samiotou Fitzsimons

A century has passed since they arrived. Human history has been erased. Children are enslaved on Alien plantations. Some have heard whispers of the existence of a rebel band of humans who roam free in the forests. Most slaves dare not speak of the rebels for fear the mutant guards will grab and make an example of them.

Seventeen-year-old Freya is pulled away in the night not by the mutants, but by her old friend Finn, to join the Saviors, the mythic band of rebel teens. Her bliss fades when she discovers she is the only Savior without a special ability. She is the odd one out, slowly pushing Finn away, defying Damian, the leader of the Saviors, and antagonizing the fierce and beautiful Daphne. In her despair Freya reaches deep within to discover a dark destiny, a truth so heavy it threatens to destroy her.

"The Dark Legion" (Book 2 of The Plantation) is now also available!
