The Balance, by Michael Selden

Posted on June 18, 2015 | in NEW BOOKS | by

the balancePeople in the Land survived the destruction of the last world war only to have their lives disrupted again by a wayward asteroid that broke up and rained down on the planet, just as life had begun to regain a sense of normalcy after the war. The second tragedy also disturbed the power sharing arrangement between the two leading factions that had helped rebuild the Land—the Council, and the Order—an agreement called The Balance. Council leaders exploited the chaos that followed and drove the Order and its members into exile. Afterward, they began banning the use of most modern technology, which the Council had long blamed for the war. Phoebe is the last remaining product of the Order’s genetic engineering programs still living under the Council’s rule. She doesn’t understand why she’s so different from everyone else, and struggles to survive while hiding what she is. The exiled Order members realize her condition and their leader sees the potential in her that might help them regain their place in society, and to re-establish The Balance. Available in hardback, paperback, or ebook – order on amazon.com.
