2023 Selah Award Finalist in First Novel

World War III has erupted on American soil. Seventeen-year-old Jadzia’s life will never be the same again.

As a mandatory draft takes effect, Jadzia finds herself on the front lines of the war, torn apart from her family. But when her best friend is killed, Jadzia is desperate to find her way back to them. She abandons her platoon and sets out on her own.

Jadzia must navigate a dangerous cross-country journey, facing betrayal, violence, and the constant threat of death. Along the way, she meets Ryker, the son of a faith leader whose places of worship have been attacked. Despite the chaos, Jadzia finds refuge and friendship among Ryker’s unlikely group of individuals … even though their faith is a little old-fashioned. And Ryker’s insistence on helping her doesn’t make it easier for Jadzia to resist her growing feelings toward him.

But the military is determined to capture Jadzia and all outlaws. When survival seems impossible, will sacrifice be their only route to freedom?

This action-packed YA dystopian novel is perfect for fans of The Out of Time Series and The Gifting Series.

Review of Path of Totality

World War 3 begins with the bombing of major cities and sets the country up for the draft. Jadzia, a teenage girl, finds herself shipped off to battle. When her friend is killed, she runs back to her family who is now missing. You can feel (and smell) the fear as you turn the pages. The action is non stop and will keep you reading. The characters are relatable and the writing is spot on. There were a few places I felt the scenes were overdone but didn’t slow down the page turns. I scratched my head at the budding romance but realized it was a set up for book two, that I would gladly read.
