DETERMINED YOUNG FUGITIVE …
DESPERATE FEDERATION FORCES CLOSE IN …
BETRAYALS AND TRAPS ALL AROUND.
Regina Shen’s advantage as an outcast is she doesn’t need much more than food and water to survive. She’s been poked, prodded, and chased across a continental desert, all for her unique genome that promises to prevent human extinction. She’s beginning to believe she has a destiny beyond surviving and rescuing her sister as she faces her biggest challenges yet.
Perfect for fans of the Hunger Games, Divergent, and Maze Runner. Regina Shen: Endurance is the fourth book in a science fiction thriller series about an ordinary yet strong young woman facing extraordinary hurdles with tenacity.
Abrupt climate change melted ice caps, flooded coasts, and turned continents into deserts. Regina grew up on salvage from sunken cities, including illegal print books from the past, which she committed to memory. She snuck onto World Federation land to rescue her sister and dropped into the middle of political intrigue.
The Federation uses the notorious Department of Antiquities to keep order by suppressing dissent and destroying evidence from the past. While the North American governor vies to become World Premier, rival Antiquities agents fight to capture Regina for political gain.
Betrayed by her mother, Regina must escape dragnets in Alaska. Posing as an ally, Chief Inspector Demarco offers to help Regina and her sister if Regina finds hidden vaults containing viable human DNA. Giving up such treasures violates Regina’s commitment to preserve ancient gifts.
Driven to help her sister and seeing no other choice, Regina embarks on a journey to the Southwest Desert to use her unique skills to provide what Demarco wants and hunt for evidence that threatens the Federation. She faces challenges and loss that shake her to her core. Can Regina find the DNA vaults for Demarco and master Federation intrigues to survive and rescue her sister before it’s too late?
