The world is thrust into darkness and silence, but no one knows why. Molly is an English professor at a local liberal arts college when the world suddenly goes dark. Her husband, Gary, is a corporate pilot on the other side of the country. Grounded by what appears to be a catastrophic power outage, he has no way to communicate with his wife, let alone get home to her.

Not knowing whether her husband is alive or dead, Molly struggles to adapt to her new environment: without power, running water, transportation, a stable food supply, or any long-distance means of communication. Without knowing the cause of the outage, Gary must decide whether to wait for things to go back to normal, or to make the long and dangerous journey home on foot. Both must learn to survive after the Blackout.

From the bucolic neighborhoods of genteel Atlanta to the seedy warehouse district the two pursue their prey. A freak thunderstorm forces Wilson to take shelter in a fire station where she meets the handsome Captain Perry Courtney who is smitten with her. She, on the other hand, is not so sure about him. This wrinkle in her visit complicates the investigation. Moreover, may derail her mission to understand the nature of the mysterious neighbor’s odd behavior. Is he a German spy? An anarchist? A bootlegger? Or something else? How is her fine captain involved in this? As Atlanta burns for a second time, our heroine embarks on a nightmare pursuit. One in which she may not survive.

James Bennett didn’t come to the Florida Keys to find a new father.

Available through March 18 at

Deal availability may change without notice! Prices may vary from store to store. Due to international copyright, availability and pricing may vary outside of the US.

DESCRIPTION:

ENTER TOMORROW with a 3 book YA Robot Cyberpunk Dystopia

EXOTIQA – Book 1
THIRTY – Book 1.5
SPHERE – Book 2

When the nation is controlled by a popular online program, those that deviate risk their lives. But that never stopped Fione.

Read the second release by author M. Black, which fans of Divergent and The Glitch will enjoy. Filled with haunting questions of consciousness and artificial intelligence, identity and self-awareness, politics and love, life and death, the reader will be engaged in an entertaining story filled with futuristic technology.

Set in the cyberpunk year 2055 in British Columbia, Canada, where humans are part robotic and robots are becoming more humanlike, the line dividing the two is becoming less clear.

When sixteen-year-old Fione meets Maci, a twenty-one-year-old Flexbot who escapes from ImaTech located along the crust of the Coast Mountains, Fione’s life is taken on a roller-coaster ride of events that begins with trying to save Maci from ImaTech Corporation and ends with trying to save the country.

With Fione’s best friend and love interest, a Flexbot named Pix, Fione and Maci must come face-to-face with the greatest dangers their country has ever seen and learn the disturbing secrets of the popular online program Exotiqa–which her friends, family, and most of the country has downloaded onto their Cerebral Slabs. This won’t be easy, since Maci’s only love and greatest enemy, nicknamed Thirty, is tracking her every move.

Fans of Divergent, iRobot, The Glitch, Blade Runner (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?), artificial intelligence, robotics, and futuristic technology will enjoy this YA Robot Cyberpunk Dystopian about two young, but strong female heroines who must save the fragile system crumbling around them.

Flexbot dialogue is told in Synchro Let text in print (10 font size in ebook), and human dialogue is told in Baskerville text (12 font size).

REVIEWS:

“Wow, wow, wow! It is nothing short of great! I love all dystopia. But you have a unique twist.” -Aisha

“The difference of narration between the eyes of a human and that of a robot is really fun. It is distinct and well thought out, of how each being would feel and see things.” -Francine

“Certainly as good as anything Jane Lindskold writes! The story flowed, it was easy to sympathize with the main characters, and it was an entertaining read.” -John

“The book explores a new avenue in robotics with emotional attachments starting to develop between robots and even between humans and bots. Realistically and sensitively dealt with, this adds an intriguing and appealing aspect to the plot. Each chapter is written through the eyes of the various characters in turn, which further adds to the suspense and intrigue as well as elaborating on the nuances of human/bot relationships.

On their quest to prevent the destruction of the world as we know it, our heros set off on a journey to ImaTech to destroy Exotiqa, meeting up with some interesting characters and becoming involved in a lot of action including an exciting car chase worthy of any Speilberg movie. In fact, the story would make a great film or perhaps a TV series. There are twists and turns in the plot and we are kept guessing as to who the culprits are until near the end.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book despite it being designed to appeal to a young adult audience, but then I am big kid at heart. In my opinion this is a great read for anyone of any age. A warining shot across the bows of AI advocates. Marvelous!” -Ken
