You all know how much I love sci-fi, and I especially love sci-fi that straddles the YA/NA line. I'm excited to show off Autumn Kalquists's cover for the second book in her Legacy Code series, PARAGON. This is some post-apocalyptic sci-fi at its best. I love books that deal with colonization and hard topics like birth defects. This series has it all.
PARAGON by Autumn Kalquist (Legacy Code Saga #2)
Publication date: Fall 2014
Genres: Dystopia, Science Fiction, Young Adult
Riots. Food shortages. Secrets. Treason.
The last humans fled Earth centuries ago, but they're still no closer to finding their better world. They trade lives for resources on a toxic planet and lose half their unborn children to an ancient genetic defect. Yet the biggest threat to the fleet may be the colonists themselves.
Tadeo Raines, a high-ranking member of the Paragon Guard, has dealt with traitors before. When a new plot endangers the fragile balance in the fleet, he's tasked with eliminating the threat. Permanently.
But Tadeo has his own secrets: choices he can't forget, dark memories he can't escape. And preserving humanity's hope for the future may depend on Tadeo coming to terms with his past.
