City of the Invaders
In the 24th century, the EC minority is a tiny, peaceful remnant that preserves with pristine integrity a fast-vanishing old culture. Growing up in the EC is an experience few in Palladia have shared—and being young here, in the midst of so much that is old, can be a lonely life. The yearly theater productions in Wyncon are a perfect place for EC kids to meet others like them. But Katia Fierten and her brother, who just moved here, find it hard to fit in even when others are welcoming. And it gets worse when they receive a mysterious invitation to visit the dark district of the city leader. What could the Dragonak or this unfamiliar family that claims to be their cousins want with them? As Katia and Frank stumble into a secret plot, the deepest truth lurks beneath the surface. Are they even fully EC?
Dystopian. 210 pages. Some light action violence.
