External Forces Chapters 1-3 (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
3 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:35PM
Description: First book in The Laws of Motion Trilogy. September 2013 release. A lot can happen to a girl between her first kiss and her first kill. It’s 100 years since the Genetic Integrity Act was passed and America’s borders were closed to prevent genetic contamination. God gave his blessing by sending the meteor, God’s Fury, to cleanse the rest of the earth. Only the enemy, dysgenic Deviants, remain beyond the border. The Department of Evolution (Devo) carefully guides the creation of each generation and deviations from the divine plan are not permitted. --- When 16-year-old Jess begins to show signs of deviance, she enlists in the Special Forces with her best friend Jay in a desperate bid to evade detection by the Devotees. She intends to hide out in Intelligence, analyzing the enemy from the safety of immersive reality. Jess is good with data, not so good with a knife, so why does the handsome and mysterious Sergeant Matt Anderson select her for his very real and very dangerous Black Ops squad? And what’s really out there, in the Deviant wasteland over the border? --- Written in immediate and stark prose, this is a raw and original visioning of a future that may be closer than we want to think. Gritty and riveting with catastrophic stakes, External Forces explores identity and the nature of humanity. Are we defined by our DNA, or can we choose who we want to be? --- "…a magnificently imagined world and intriguing characters. Rix engagingly plays out Jess and Matt’s relationship with subtle touches, longing looks and playful banter. She also effectively challenges her young readers to face difficult questions—what does “Human” mean, and who should decide?—while ably setting the stage for an upcoming sequel. A complex, intriguing YA sci-fi adventure." —Kirkus Reviews
