Although Tegan was brought back to life from cyronic suspension in When We Wake, she is the only known survivor of the process. The Ark Project places all candidates into cyronic suspension.
Told from Abdi’s point of view, we live his fears, emotions and confusions. When Abdi and Tegan escape, they are determined to find out the truth about the Ark Project, but will they survive long enough to find out?
This story about a small resistance movement taking on the might of the Australian Government in a time when the world’s resources are dwindling hits a little too close to home. Australia’s borders are closed. No one is allowed in without government permission. Gone are the days of immigration programs and student visas. Is the Ark Project one big assassination scheme? A way to reduce the population?
You’ll have to read it to find out.
