Sketches by Teyla Branton

Someone will do anything to stop them from learning the truth

New Series from the Bestselling Author of the Unbounded Series.

Eighty years after Breakdown, Detective Reese Parker has pulled herself up from the dregs of society in Welfare Colony 6 to become a sketch artist and enforcer for the CORE (Commonwealth Objective for Reform and Efficiency). She works hard with other enforcers to maintain peace and order among the CORE's 2 million residents, especially against the radiation-crazed outsiders called fringers.

But Reese hides a secret she can never share with anyone, a secret that killed her father and ruined the life of the person she once loved more than anyone.

When a new assignment sends Reese to Amarillo City, near where she grew up, she's partnered with Jaxon Tennant on the Violent Crimes Investigation Unit, and she knows her secret won't stay secret long. Somehow their past is connected to missing scientists and programmers, but all leads go nowhere: evidence disappears, witnesses change testimony, and names vanish from the CORE database.

Someone is willing to do anything to stop Reese and her former Colony 6 crew from discovering the truth behind what is has been done to them-and thousands of others. To learn what they have become, Reese and her friends must go against the very foundations of the society they serve. There is no going back.

Sketches is the first of a series following the six members of the Colony 6 crew.

About the Author

International bestselling author Teyla Branton grew up avidly reading science fiction and fantasy and watching Star Trek reruns with her large family. They lived on a little farm where she loved to visit the solitary cow and collect (and juggle) the eggs, usually making it back to the house with most of them intact. On that same farm she once owned thirty-three gerbils and eighteen cats, not a good mix, as it turns out. Teyla always had her nose in a book and daydreamed about someday creating her own worlds. She is now married, mostly grown up, and has seven kids, including a five-year-old, so life at her house can be very interesting (and loud), but writing keeps her sane. She thrives on the energy, inspiration, and daily amusement offered by her children. Grabbing any snatch of free time from her hectic life, Teyla writes novels, often with a child on her lap. She loves guns, martial arts, and belly dancing. Teyla writes urban fantasy, paranormal romance, and science fiction. She also writes romance and romantic suspense under the name Rachel Branton.

Reminded me of The Hunger Games a tad bit with the different compounds producing different produce to make the finished product. Over all good story line that makes it different from the Hunger Games. It was a page turner for sure. Looking forward to the next one in the series!

Sketches, another great book by Teyla Branton. I have been a fan since stumbling across her Unbounded series. So, when I found this gem, I just had to read it, and I am really glad that I did. The world is in chaos and broken into Colonies and just when the characters think things are good, they see things are not what they seem. The book has a great story and develops nicely, and you cannot help but to want to love Reese and Jaxon and the friendship they have been able to hold onto. Branton gives you just what you would want, but also leaves you wanting more, this book has a little bit of everything, a dystopian layout with some sci-fi action and let’s not forget about the little hints at other things...but I don't want to give anything away. If you have read and liked Branton you need to get this book, and if you have read Branton and were on the fence, grab a copy of this book because, I feel that you will be glad that you did.
