Description: TREASON. BETRAYAL. HEARTBREAK. A lot can happen to a girl between her first kiss and her first kill
A fast-paced, high-stakes adventure through a future world where evolution is the new religion and genetic deviations are not tolerated. When 16-year-old Jess finds she is a Deviant, she joins a band of teenage rebel soldiers in a desperate attempt to escape detection.
It’s 100 years since the Genetic Integrity Act was passed and America closed its borders to prevent genetic contamination. Now only the enemy, dysgenic Deviants, remain beyond the heavily guarded border. The Department of Evolution carefully guides the creation of each generation and deviations from the divine plan are not permitted.
When 16-year-old Jess begins to show signs of deviance she enlists in the Special Forces, with her best friend Jay, in a desperate bid to evade detection by the Devotees. Jess is good with data, not so good with a knife. So when the handsome and secretive Sergeant Matt Anderson selects her for his Black Ops squad, Jess is determined to figure out why.
As her deviance continues to change her, Jess is forced to decide who to trust with her deadly secret. Jess needs to know what’s really out there, in the Deviant wasteland over the border, if she has any hope of making it to her 17th birthday. Because if the enemy doesn’t kill her first, the Department of Evolution probably will.
Reviews: "External Forces is a brutal and honest look at a post-apocalyptic dystopia where being different is a sin that could cost you your life. Author Deborah Rix doesn't hold any punches as the reader is immersed in this scary and at times beautiful world. Rix expertly crafts characters that you instantly cling to and hope are able to rise above the oppressive hate that seems to be a part of everyday life."
