Sequel to the 2018 Best Indie Book Award winner in young adult fiction and a terrifying vision of a possible future.
I thought I understood the truth.
I thought I knew the whole story.
But no one really did.
In a country defined by scarcity and control, Enora Byrnes leaves the watchful eyes and secret agendas of the powerful and enters a society living on the fringes. Life beneath the surface brings her face-to-face with a world struggling to survive.
Armed with knowledge and honed into a weapon for the resistance, she fights alongside those whom society deems rebels and uses her skills to steal a secret kept hidden from humanity. Enora becomes what she has hunted: a traitor.
As Enora embarks on a fateful quest, will she find the one thing that could give her world hope or a truth that is far worse than she ever imagined?
Praise for the book:
“It's a heartbreaking tale that gives drops of hope before they are almost pulled away. An amazing story with a cautionary ending.” (Joey Paul, author)
“Well-planned and researched, Burden of Truth, is the sequel to an eye-opening story of a dystopian future on earth, when water and food are scarce, and a battle to create an evolved life form occurs. The book is captivating, and I stayed up late reading the final chapters. I really like the writing and character development, and my heart ached for Ander. The ending is thought-provoking and suggests a completely conceivable outcome. Given Enora’s choices, I wonder what I would do.” (Donna Elliott, author)
