She is from the past, locked inside a world within a world.
He is from the future, haunted by her death.
A sensible young nobleman and his fiery sister live in an experimental medieval village. Sealed inside this biodome since infancy, Leaf and Willow have been groomed by The Code to build a sustainable world, one devoid of Outsider interference. One that believes death will give way to life.
All is ideal until their father bequeaths a family secret with his dying breath, placing an invisible crown of power on Leaf’s head. Now everyone in their quiet town is suspect. Risking banishment, the siblings search for clues, leading them to Fillion Nichols, an Outsider with a shocking connection to their family. Their encounter launches Fillion into battle with his turbulent past as he rushes to decode the many secrets that bind their future together–a necessity if they are all to survive.
Cultures clash in an unforgettable quest for truth, unfolding a story rich in mystery, betrayal, and love.

Guys I got absolutely wrapped into this book. The author has a real knack for world building. It’s completely different from any other dystopian/scifi book I’ve ever read. Leaf and Willow ( or Oaklee) are in a biodome which they think is an experimental civilization on Mars. Turns out, it’s basically a LARP-ing reality tv show in the US, the original members knew but the younger generations have no idea.
Leaf and Willow discover one of their fathers secrets, what they think is a portal is really a computer and they meet Fillion. I instantly loved Fillion. He is snarky and a bit goofy and sarcastic.
The teens and twenty-somethings lives are so incredibly close to our current society. Too smart but too young to get good jobs, so they turn to drugs to escape the depression of life.
Not only does this book have a cool cover, it has pages scattered throughout the book that are snap shots of what the scenery looks like in the New Eden biome.
The words and world in this book are absolutely beautiful. Any fan of sci-fi and dystopians, even fans of Warcross, are sure to enjoy this book!
