The Pairings Series
The secret is locked in her mind—and they’ll do anything to get it.
Generations ago, humanity was devastated by a virus that wiped billions from the planet. If not for AmeriGlobe’s Pairing programme to match immune survivors, and VaxWell’s immunity-boosting biomods, humans would’ve died out.
Lora Flannigan has sought to conform to the strict laws throughout her eighteen years, and after the Testing she now stands on the brink of a prestigious pairing with high-caste Jarid. Accepting the match will pull her and her family up from their low-caste existence.
But Lora never counted on the sparks that ignite when she meets her Pair’s striking brother: Syeth—dark, brooding and harbouring secrets. But before she’s managed to make sense of her feelings, he’s embroiled her in the rebellion underworld.
And when still darker truths come to light, Lora realizes the purpose behind not only her pairing… but her very existence.
She’s a miracle—one BioPure intends to recapture at any cost.
In a world devastated by the Zero Virus, the BioPure vaccine was the cure that saved millions in the apocalyptic aftermath. Yet, it had an unfortunate side effect: it inhibited reproduction, necessitating the Parings system, which matches couples to one another in order to produce healthy, test-tube babies. But Lora Flannigan is the naturally conceived miracle child with a single genetic flaw that has become her greatest weapon. Perfect recall.
Since Lora uncovered and exposed BioPure’s treachery, the enemy has stopped at nothing in their quest to hunt her down. Now part of the rebellion, Lora sets out with her loved ones across the rugged and untamed desolation of New California in order to discover what really happened to her mother.
But Lora isn’t the only one interested in finding her creator. A vicious Biomodded security officer tails them, using Lora to track the researchers leading the rebellion.
She plans to wipe them from the earth before anyone learns the awful truth about Zero or BioPure’s true intentions.
Torn in two directions, Glade must make one fateful choice—for herself, and the future of humanity. Glade Io is a rebel. Having fled with her younger sisters to live among the Ferrymen, she knows there is no going back now. She is committed to the cause of overthrowing the brutal Authority, and she trains her new comrades in the art of combating Datapoints like herself—those tasked with the Ferrymen’s destruction. Meanwhile Ferryman leader Kupier longs to travel the stars with Glade, free from constant war, but to do that he believes they must strike The Authority at its heart: the ancestral homeworld of Earth. Glade is hesitant; she hopes taking out the Datapoints living on the Station will be enough. But when the time comes, Glade faces the specter of killing her former friends in cold blood and her former mentor, Dahn Enceladus, tells her that The Authority has eyes and ears within the rebel stronghold. Now Glade faces a dilemma: sabotage The Authority from within, or return to fight alongside the Ferrymen, possibly putting her sisters’ lives in danger.
