What if your last day at school turned out to be your first day as a rebel warrior?

“Think,'Lord of the Flies' meets the wild children in 'Beyond Thunderdome.”

In a land disfigured by famine and disease, panic spreads throughout the scattered population of NotSoGreatBritAlbian as the Agro Empire cuts food supplies and special children known as Meeks, disappear.

Now, starving Renegades are gathering, ready to storm the last haven in NotSoGreatBritAlbion. Whispers of a saviour have brought them to the perimeter fences. They want Adara, Catcher of Birds.

17-year-old orphan, Adara, isn’t like the other girlygigs in Cityplace. She has a special power which must be kept hidden. High-spirited and headstrong, she is thrilled about leaving school so she can follow her dream to train as an elite soldier of the New World Territories. But her plans are cut brutally short when Agros send in troops to lay waste to the capital. After her brother, Deogol, is abducted by a dark stranger, Adara must choose between saving him or joining her Santy Breanna to defend the once peaceful Metropolis from a vicious and deadly force.

“If you like action, and science fiction then you’ll appreciate one of the first books EVER that gives you high powered adrenalin with chilling revelations of utter suspense!” 

Do you enjoy reading books that are different, have a strong storyline with offbeat characters, and quirky language? Then you will love Whisper Gatherers. It is a great addition to the dystopian/Sci-fi tradition of authors such as Suzanne Collins, Veronica Roth, Bella Forest, Patrick Ness, Ursula K. Le Guin and Margaret Atwood.

With round-the-clock drugs, games, and eros parlors to entertain them and virtual weather to sustain them, humans live inside a global network of domed cities known collectively as the Enclosure. Having poisoned the biosphere, we’ve had to close ourselves off from the Earth. The cities of the Enclosure are scattered around the globe on the land and sea, and are connected by a web of travel tubes, so no one needs to risk exposure. Health Patrollers police the boundaries of the Enclosure to keep the mutants and pollution out.

Phoenix Marshall decodes satellite images for a living. He has spent all 30 years of his life in Oregon City, afloat on the Pacific Ocean. He busies himself with work and various forms of recreation to keep boredom at bay. One morning he opens his door to find Teeg Passio. Teeg is the same age as Phoenix, but she’s different; she’s menacingly and enticingly wild. She grew up on the outside. Her mother oversaw the recycling of the old cities, and her father helped design the Enclosure. Teeg works maintenance, which allows her to travel outside the walls. When she introduces Phoenix to her crew, he is drawn into a high-tech conspiracy that may threaten everything he understands. Are humans really better off within the Enclosure? Is the Earth? Are Health Patrollers keeping us safe or just keeping us in?

Teeg seduces Phoenix out of his orderly life, enlisting him in a secret, political, and sexual rebellion. Teeg and her co-conspirators, part mystics, part tech-wizards, dream of a life embedded in nature. Then one day, during a closely monitored repair mission on the outside, a typhoon offers the rebels a chance to escape the Enclosure and test their utopian dreams in the wilds.
