Described as Dune meets The Hunger Games, this epic narrative of survival will have you in suspense and intrigue. Set in the futuristic world of Eldon, our hero, Zelenka, is forced to abandon everything she loves for a chance at freedom.
With parallels to today’s global crises, this book will have you questioning; would you risk it all?
It is year 2107 and the planet which was once called Earth (now Eldon), is ruled by a single, oppressive government.  Many of those who suffered under the tyrannical rule of Eldon, have fled to a neighbouring planet, Amaryllis, and attempted to grow a utopian society.
Relations between the two worlds are fraught.  Each believe the other to be evil.  Each believe it is their responsibility to save humankind from the other.
Within this interplanetary political backdrop, lives Zelenka.  The Eldonian teenager is forced to hide her intelligence and knowledge.  Naïve and idealistic, she has never fitted into Eldonian life.  She longs to openly be herself but is terrified of the government’s harsh rules and punishments.
“Zelenka is a true hero to me,” says the author, Elisa Hansen. “She has a strength of character that I see in many women facing similar fates today. Facets of the Eldon society mirror the present. Our heroes should not always the ones who succeed, but the people with true intent, and drive, to change.”
About the Author

Growing up in Melbourne, Australia, Elisa Hansen was curious about other worlds. The travel bug bit her young, and she spent her early years with a pack on her back and hiking boots on her feet. Beyond exploring she loves to dance, cook, eat, learn other languages and paint.
Excerpt: 
The streets were void of human noise. Only their breaths and the soft wind broke the silence. It was well past curfew.
Zelenka followed him downhill. He turned left at the end and continued along an uneven laneway. At first, Zelenka knew the streets but as they ventured into unknown nooks of the city, she was forced to concentrate on her footing. The potholes were invisible in the darkness. She realised he took the back laneways, the ones concealed from the barred, grimy windows of the apartments, squeezed along the narrow roads like stockpiles.
These paths were narrower and shielded from the moonlight by the amass of worn-away walls.
Neither spoke. Every now and then he would glance back, checking she was following.
She heard their destination before she spotted it. A low din of government music, a cough, then a groan. As they rounded the next corner, she saw a single electric bulb over a red plaque. As they approached, she read its words in black print: State Bar—Contracted women available nightly.
And below that in fine gold text: God relieves you.
