The Echelon Series
No one can survive outside the Dome…
Only the Dome provides a safe haven. Inside, life is split between the rich Sky and the poor Dirt, where 1 in 10 Dirt children are selected to be injected with nanobots to withstand an Earth ravaged by toxic air and violent mutants. They are the Decemites, trained to gather resources from Outside. Their nanobots grant them a chance for a better life—though few will survive long enough to enjoy it.
Dirt Dweller Myla wasn’t chosen to be a Decemite, but she still carries the nanobots in her blood—a secret she guards closely. When Myla’s young sister is turned into a Decemite and disappears after her first mission to the Outside, Myla will have to brave the toxic world to find her.
The golden boy of the Decemites, Lock, becomes Myla’s unlikely companion but as they grow close, Ben, a rebel shows Myla that life Outside is so different than she could have imagined. To find her sister she’ll need to infiltrate Ben’s Outsiders, and if Lock finds out about her secret, only death awaits.
Life was simpler in the Dirt…
Her home was known to be the sole haven on a toxic, mutant-ridden Earth – Until Myla ran away from the domed city of Echelon to rescue her Decemite sister, Ona and saw that it had all been a lie. She never imagined there could be humans living on the Outside – Rebels like Ben, a boy who showed her the freedom that she’d never thought possible.
Now that Echelon is proven to be the real danger, they must continue their fight – Ben from the Outside, and Myla from within. She returns home with her Decemite friend Lock still by her side, both lauded as heroes for rescuing Ona. Thrust from their home in the Dirt straight to the high society in the Sky, the rules and dangers there begin to threaten Myla’s safety, while even deadlier secrets threaten the lives of those closest to her.
When Decemites start disappearing, Myla needs to figure out what’s going on before every Decemite in the Sky suffers the same fate – including her sister. Myla delves into the mysteries of Echelon and its leader, Lady Lazrad, uncovering a terrible secret that could shatter their beliefs all over again.
Myla will need to dig deep to save the ones she loves…
All her life, Myla was told Echelon was the only place humans could survive. A journey outside the domed city proved that was a lie. Now all the other lies told by Lady Lazrad, the leader of Echelon, are unravelling, leading Myla down a path to open rebellion.
At her side are Ben and Lock, one a rebel boy, the other a nanobot infused Decemite who fled Echelon with her. They’ve both helped her grow as a person and into her power, but her heart is confused what she wants from either of them.
Myla never meant to become a rebel leader when she first snuck out of Echelon’s dome to rescue her sister. But with her sister turned against her and Lady Lazrad determined to rule over everyone, she must reach deep within herself to find the strength to lead her allies.
With death hanging over her, Myla knows the only way to save the people of Echelon and those outside the city that Lazrad is determined to annihilate is to reveal the iron fisted ruler’s treachery and remove her from power.
No matter the cost.
On an Earth ravaged by toxic waste and violent mutants, one girl with power in her blood will rise to save them.
Only the Decemites—carefully selected children injected with nanobots and trained to survive the treacherous terrain Earth has become—can survive the outside long enough to collect resources for the domed city of Echelon. Decemites who serve long enough have a chance at a better life. But few live to experience their reward.
Myla’s only ever known the stratified life inside the dome. As the secret child of a forbidden Decemite relationship, she has abilities like no one else, abilities she’s had to keep hidden her entire life. But when her Decemite sister goes missing on a mission, Myla’s search to bring her home will uncover the truth about the Outside and the secrets the leader of Echelon has been keeping. No normal human is supposed to be able to survive outside the dome, but rebel Outsiders prove that wrong.
By her side is Lock, the Decemite golden boy and unlikely companion in her quest. As she grows closer to Lock, a rebel boy, Ben, shows her the lies that Echelon has been keeping. He draws her deep into the rebel world and a life she never could have imagined.
As she uncovers the ugly truths about Echelon, Myla will have to make a choice: can she ever go back to her old life, or is her only chance at freedom to tear down the only world she’s ever known?
