What if you could live hundreds of years – but never age?

In the year 2315 you can live for hundreds of years and never age past eleven. That is, if you’re one of the lucky ones. But the not-so-lucky ones are disturbingly close, and they’re threatening your safety, security, and even your deepest beliefs. Soon, it will be all-out war.

Among a chosen few, life expectancy is now hundreds of years; these are the forever children, and science has found a way to keep them in a nearly endless childhood state. Secure in their giant hives, they have left the outsiders, who must live natural lives, to fend for themselves.

This is the story of Kianno and Seelin, two youths who find themselves trading places in this strange new world, one leading the life of a forever child and the other growing up in the anarchy of the outside world.

Their lives come together in surprising and unexpected ways, as they both become involved in a fierce struggle between the two worlds.

Discover for yourself a future world of eternal childhood, and the nightmares and battles which erupt from this seemingly innocent society.

But the quest for endless youth comes at a cost.

How will Kianno and Seelin survive in this battle for eternal life?

Review for ForeverChild

What an entrancing read in this fast paced story! The author did a fabulous job of bringing us forward about 300 years while letting us know the history – both in an informative yet not boring way. The world building is out of sight, I could feel what it was like to live in both the “normal” outside world and within the hives of the forever children. The characters are fantastic, namely Kianno and Seelin who bring the different worlds alive. The twists, turns, and emotions pack a powerful punch. It’s definitely a story I won’t be forgetting soon.
