New World

By Lyssa Chiavari

MARS, 2075 C.E.
Isaak has returned from Iamos, but life hasn’t exactly gone back to normal. In what felt like a month to him, two years passed in the world he left behind—and now that he’s home, he’s not sure if he knows what home is anymore. Mars has become a world of riots and police states, with GSAF doing everything in their power to clamp down on the burgeoning rebellion started by Isaak’s once-best friend, Henry Sandhu. It doesn’t take long before he realizes that maybe coming back to Mars wasn’t such a good idea. But unless they can find a way to get to the time postern—currently guarded by heavily-armed GSAF agents—Isaak is stuck in the future… and so is Nadin.

Nadin thought that the future would hold her answers, but everything changed the moment they passed through the door. All she wants now is to return to Iamos and make sure that her partner, Ceilos, is safe. But once her identity as a native Martian gets out, she finds herself caught in a political struggle she doesn’t understand, with both factions trying to win her over to their side. And when GSAF learns that Nadin holds the key to deciphering the mysterious System, they’ll stop at nothing to keep her on Mars—permanently.



And don’t forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a ton of books by me, Lyssa, and more! To enter, you need to know that my favorite number is 4. Add up all the favorite numbers of the authors on the orange team and you’ll have all the secret code to enter for the grand prize!

    I just read The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson and I loved it! I flew through it and was on the edge of my seat the entire time. I appreciated that I could not guess the ending; the whole book was full of surprises!

    There’s so many different ones I love, but I always find myself loving the guy with the tortured past. He has scars, or is broken or hurt from what has happened to him. I end up loving every single one of those books I pick up. Thank you for the chance!

    I’m loving may/december romances. teacher/student (I had an Ezria phase). Bad boy/good guy. Time travel. Fairy Tale remakes (I’m looking at you, Geekerella). I recently read a book about teens stuck in a library together and they became a thing and I liked that and I liked that the guy she liked didn’t die or get vicious when she said “i like this guy now” he was like “it’s cool we were feeling our way around each other and oyu went a different direction” and it was so chill I loved it. I also loved another book by that author, but I remember neither title nor the author nor can I be bothered to go look for them. I’m too tired. #9hoursintoYASH

    I recently read The Hobbit by Tolkien and let me tell you, I expected to love it and it blew my expectations out of the water. It’s more fascinating when you can piece together aspects of Tolkien’s past that shaped and helped create the LOTR world!

    I love the hidden identity trope where an important character is revealed to be someone else… like a relative to the villain, actually alive and not dead, etc. I never see them coming, and although it can be a bit overused, it still shocks me.

    I recently read the book The Bunker Diary by Kevin Brooks, and I honestly LOVED IT!!!! The ending is just…..speechless. You would never accept it but it fits perfectly with the novel, even if it kinda left me in tears.

    I recently started a book called Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick, which is the 3 book in the Hush Hush Saga and I love it!! The writing makes me feel like I am there and my heart aches and rejoices with the characters. Definitely ship the main character and the fallen angel.
