Overview

The eco-sci-fi adventure that began with Yesterday continues with a thriller which can also be read as a standalone.
2063, United North America: Climate change has rendered great swathes of the country uninhabitable, the rise of robot workers has created mass unemployment, eco-terrorism is a constant threat and a 2059 nuclear exchange between Pakistan and India has torn large holes in the world's ozone layer and pushed humanity's existence towards a cliff.
Nineteen-year-old Garren and seventeen-year-old Freya have managed to escape that nightmare world and lose themselves in 1986 Vancouver. But the future's reach is long, and they're no longer safe there. No one is. Shadowy forces are intent on influencing the past's path. And when Freya is taken, it's up to Garren to save both her, and the future.

Praise for Tomorrow:

"Martin obviously understands intrigue and knows how to construct a story that leaves readers wanting more with each passing chapter. She also manages to cover difficult and nuanced topics of sexuality and race, as well as environmental destruction and international warfare, with a light touch...This companion piece to Yesterday is very much worth seeking out. Highly recommended."
— CM Magazine: Canadian Review of Materials, ***½ /4
Praise for Yesterday:
Shortlisted for the Canadian Library Association’s Young Adult Book Award 2013
"Sci-fi thrillers are hot right now, and Yesterday does not disappoint...patient readers will be rewarded and will clamor for a sequel."
— School Library Journal, Starred Review
"A satisfying, original blend of time-travel thriller, science fiction and romance, this white-knuckle read is more Jason Bourne than Katniss Everdeen."
— Quill & Quire
"Martin weaves a wonderfully dystopian tale of deception, betrayal, and heartache as she takes her readers on a journey through the past and the future, at once showing them the destruction of a nation and the rebuilding of a species... Bringing together elements of political intrigue, ecological disaster, romance, thrilling chases, and time bending, Martin has crafted a truly wondrous and unique fictional tale. Highly recommended."
— CM Magazine: Canadian Review of Materials, ***½ /4
"A vivid infusion of 1980s culture gives this near-future dystopia an offbeat, Philip K. Dick aura...The cultural homage is nostalgic fun, from Care Bears to MacGyver. But for delivering that uniquely ’80s flavor, nothing beats music. Fans of the Smiths, Depeche Mode, Scritti Politti—this one’s for you."
— Kirkus Reviews
"C.K. Kelly Martin's novel has all the makings of good speculative fiction fused with a nostalgic nod to the music scene of the 1980s. Martin writes of a bleak future that is reminiscent of Aldous Huxley's dystopian classic Brave New World..."
— VOYA
