In a world where your thoughts don't belong to you, the person who controls minds will rule everything.

Welcome to The Society...

She was nothing. No one. Just one more starving teen scrabbling for life on the outskirts of The Society – the high-tech city where the Elites rule in luxury under the ever-watchful eye of the tyrannical President Wolfe.

But when Aura's mother is arrested for crimes against the society, and Aura herself attacked while trying to flee, she discovers that she is one of the Gifted: people with psychic powers strong enough to shift the flow of history, to change the world around them... even to overthrow the "perfect" dystopia of The Society.

Now, Aura is on the run. Branded The Society's most dangerous threat, and aided only by an exiled scientist, Aura must hone her skills and try to stay one step ahead of the government's kill squads, all the while trying to figure out how to save her family and survive in a world bent on her destruction.

An impossible task, and about to get even harder.

Because now her mother has been imprisoned in Wolfe's personal palace, and the only way to get her out is to be captured herself, escape a place no one has ever returned from... and overthrow the most powerful government in history along the way.

If you like The Hunger Games, Divergent, The Maze Runner, or Red Queen, you'll love R. J. Wade's Aura. A perfect blend of action, thrills, adventure, and intrigue, Aura is a dystopian young adult adventure like nothing you've ever read before. Get your copy now!

About the Author

R. J. (Becky) Wade was born in Darlington, in the UK. An avid reader and wannabe writer from a young age, Becky always had a book in her hand and loved getting lost in stories by authors such as Roald Dahl, R. L. Stine, and Enid Blyton. She would write short stories, comic strips, and poems after school, and eventually, during the summer of BritPop, she discovered song-writing and electric guitars.

Becky’s creativity found an outlet in a series of indie rock bands, and her music took her around the world, from the USA to Japan, via Europe and the UK ‘toilet-circuit’ – a rite of passage for any up and coming musician.

It wasn’t all rock ‘n’ roll, however. In between the shows, the video shoots, and the recording sessions, there were stints working as a market trader, a (very bad) double-glazing telesales person, a bookseller, a DJ, a club promoter, and an events manager.

In between ‘proper jobs,’ Becky turned her attentions back to writing stories, thinking maybe it was time she wrote that novel she’d always dreamed about...

The novel became the 'Aura Jax' trilogy, a dystopian urban fantasy about the terrors of totalitarianism and the rise of AI, which resonated with fans of The Hunger Games, Divergent, The Red Queen and The Maze Runner.

'Aura' – the first book in the trilogy – was released in August 2019 to wide acclaim, and the second book, 'The Spark,' followed on 31st January 2022. Becky is currently working on the third and final book, tentatively called 'Wildfire.'

Becky lives in Darlington with her fiancée and rescue dog, dividing her time between writing, CrossFitting, and launching marketing campaigns.
