“There’s plenty of action, but it rarely solves things in the way that the characters, or readers, expect. If, like me, you’re tired of stories with predictable outcomes, this book is for you.”

Flesh & Wires

By Jackie Hatton

It’s summer on the Connecticut shore, sometime in the not-too-distant future. The invaders have been and gone, taking most of civilization with them. All that remain are scattered groups of women survivors, their skin speckled silver with alien implants. Most are too broken to do more than just survive in the encroaching wilderness. A strong few use the powers coursing through their alien wires to flourish and rebuild. In Saugatuck a group of one thousand female survivors have slowly created an oasis of civilization. However, their world remains fragile, and they don’t understand their true nature, let alone their purpose. Why don’t they age? Are they the last of their kind?

After leading this unique community of survivors for thirty years Lo is restless. She needs a new challenge. Then two men in a spaceship fly into town — bearing news of more on the way. Lo responds by firing up her weapons systems. Her security crew have to stop her. Perhaps it’s time to quit shooting uninvited guests on sight – especially men who might be able to give them children. Suddenly Lo finds herself facing both rebellion within and trouble without — and that’s before the big metal boxes begin falling from the sky.

It’s not going to be your ordinary post-apocalyptic summer.
