City of Light

What if the sun never rises? A Y.A. Dystopian Sci-Fi by Rebecca Laffar-Smith

Nar has become a wasteland. The planet hasn’t seen sunlight in two hundred years. Most people escaped into domed cities and the ultra rich hide in virtual reality worlds created by the Lord of Light. They’ve waited generations, believing Captain Bellamy will return with a cure. But the captain is dead, and my DNA isn’t the match it was supposed to be.

My sister and I are the backup plan of a malfunctioning robot.
I was supposed to be a perfect copy, a clone, but I’m not.

Something went wrong.

That genetic mistake is killing me.

Our starship, and the droid, believe I can still deliver the cure. We can’t let the Lord of Light and his Stalkers destroy our last chance to give Nar back to its people. I’m no hero, no leader, no saviour; but the people of Nar need someone to follow. And I’ll do anything to protect my sister.

I just hope my health lasts long enough to bring her home.

High stakes Space Opera with empowering ability-diverse characters.

“I really enjoyed stepping into the world of Nar. I loved the technology, the creatures, and the murky planet with its artificial city. The story kept me on the edge of my seat, and I’m looking forward to seeing what becomes of Niah, Wish, and Tye in the next installment.” Rebekah Prince

“City of Light is an enjoyable, well-paced story with a key representative element: main character Niah has a chronic disability, a genetic misprint that’s slowly killing her — yet hardly slows her down. As she and her clone-sister Wish race to fulfill a mission that began 200 years ago, to save all of Nar, they meet a well-rounded cast of other characters (both human and not) and establish a world that any reader will look forward to spending more time in.” Christa M. Miller, author of Raccoon Rescue and Raccoon Retreat middle grade dyslexia-friendly books.
