The Rosie Black Chronicles, written by Australian author, Lara Morgan, is one of my favourite YA science fiction series. If you haven’t come across this series (from Walker Books Australia) you don’t know what you’re missing. Here’s the blurb of the first book in the series, Genesis:
Rosie Black is on the run to save her family and uncover the truth.
Five hundred years into the future, the world is a different place. The Melt has sunk most of the coastal cities and Newperth is divided into the haves, the “Centrals”; the have-nots, the “Bankers”; and the fringe dwellers, the “Ferals”. Rosie Black is a Banker. When Rosie finds an unusual box, she has no idea of the grave consequences of her discovery. A mysterious organisation wants it – and they’ll kill to get it. Forced to rely on two strangers, Rosie is on the run. But who can she trust? Pip, the too attractive Feral, or the secretive man he calls boss? From Earth to Mars, Rosie must learn the secrets of the box. Before it’s too late.
Lara amped up the action and the tension in the second book, Equinox, and the third and final book, Dark Star, is due to be released in November. I’ll be reviewing it here on the blog in a couple of weeks and, thanks to Walker Books, I’ll have some signed copies to give away. In the mean time, check out the fantastic trailer for Dark Star:
Lara Morgan will be visiting the Walker Books Australia offices on Thursday so if you have any burning questions about the series to ask her you can post them here or send Walker Books a message on Twitter – @WalkerBooksAus
