Volume 1 of the Shadow of Utopia series!
Once, long ago, the world was a happier place. It was beautiful and rich with life. There was music and laughter, pictures that could move, objects that could sing. When a life was born, people celebrated and hosted parties. When a life was taken, people were overcome with grief. There was light everywhere, and hope could always be found in the darkest of times.
That world was called Earth.
Earth is no more. This is the dead Earth, a shell of what once was. Here there is darkness and death, sickness and turmoil. Music is fragments of memories contained within the oldest people. Laughter is for fools. Life is misfortune, death is celebrated. There is no hope.
Over population and sickness have led to the destruction of society. The elite live in a floating utopia overlooking the dying world below. Many of those on the surface are mutilated and insane, side-effects of the plague that swept the land.
Yet, a few have overcome the illness and developed strange powers from it. They are trying to survive in a war-torn world as neither part of the mutants or the normal people living above.
Cora is one of the people on the surface world who has developed powers from the sickness that swept the nation.
This is her story.

Praise for Shadow of Utopia:
"The plot of this story is a very interesting twist on the apocalypse and mutant development."
"This is the story of one of the earth's survivors (Cora). She not only has an interesting background but is also hopeful for the future. Most of the earth's people have lost all hope. The quick-claws and the sharp-tooths are forces to be reckoned with by members of the village."
"The three book set provides an alternative future that is just as current today. Well written and realistic options are provided."
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This isn't a book at 32 pages. It is a sampling of the series. The writing was a little too unsophisticated for my tastes. I gave it 3 stars though, because others might like it, and there wasn't anything inherently wrong with the story idea or writing.
