Into Shadow by T.D. Shields

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: YA Dystopian

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB

She’s nineteen. The President’s daughter. They want her dead.

Poppy’s father may be the President of the North American Alliance, but that just makes her a target for those wishing to topple the regime.

Barely escaping with her life, she must travel across a country ravaged by war and climate change to seek safety amongst a people who only recently opposed her. There she must use every skill learned from her military upbringing to survive terrifying beasts, deadly plant life, and lawless gangs before finally finding a group willing to accept her.

But her peace soon proves to be illusory. It’s not only the government that wants her dead now.

EXCERPT

We sped through the streets, taking turns recklessly fast as we tried to lose the bikes on our tails. As we flew around yet another corner, one of the bikes caught up to me and slapped into the back of my bike. It wasn’t a particularly hard collision, but it popped my bike loose from the mag-lev rail, and I went skidding sideways across the pavement. When the base of the bike hit the curb at the edge of the road, I was flung over the handlebars to land in a crumpled heap on the cracked sidewalk.

All I could do was lie there, staring blankly at a weed growing inches from my nose as I tried to catch my breath. From the corner of my eye I saw Sharra slow and look back, trying to decide if she could help me. Then she leaned low over the handlebars and shot off into the dark streets, leaving me behind.

A million small aches and pains made themselves known as I rolled slowly to my knees. I didn’t bother to get up any further than that. I was completely surrounded, and I knew I wouldn’t be able to move fast enough to break loose from all of these people and retrieve my downed bike. Instead, I waited in silence to see what would happen next and watched for an opportunity to escape.

AUTHOR Bio and Links

After writing stories in her head for the last 30+ years, Tara finally decided to take a stab at writing them down to share them with others.

Tara has a husband, 4 kids, and 5 cats to care for along with a full-time job and contract work on the side, so finding time to write is the biggest challenge. Since her most productive hours are from 12-5 a.m. anyway, Tara usually gives up sleep in favor of writing.

  1. I like that cover and I really want to learn more about her makeup and the cat in the backpack. (That sounds like a new Dr. Seuss book.) Thanks for sharing this one.

  2. Isn’t that cover fantastic? When my cover artist sent it to me I was so thrilled. I’ll tell you a little secret – the cat was never intended to be a main character. He started as just a quick walk-in for one scene. But as cats like to do, he just kept coming back and pushing his way in! When I first self-published the book, I got so many emails and comments from readers who loved the cat that when the book was picked up by my publisher (Aelurus Publishing – which means cat, lol!) I ended up re-writing some of the book to give the cat a bigger part – and then he made his way into book 2 as well!
