Aubrie Dionne began her New Dawn Series in August 2011 with Paradise 21. I was lucky to meet this great writer through my blog. She's also a great reader and critique partner. The world is lucky to have her in it. Now, drum roll ****
Please welcome Aubrie today to celebrate the release of Tundra 37 and A Hero Rising.
First of all, I want to thank Cher for hosting me on her blog on my book release day!!! Thank you, Cher!
She’s been a great critique partner, and I love reading her own work, which all of you should check out after reading this post!
I came today to talk about two important characters in Tundra 37: The Seers, twin sisters with the ability to manipulate technology.
Growing up in the lower levels of an overpopulated Earth, their only chance at a better future lay in having their powers tested and used by a corporation called TINE: The Telepathic Institute of New England. While at TINE, they are asked by a very rich man to use their powers to drive his colony ship from Earth to Paradise 18. They agree to his terms, and find themselves driving the ship hundreds of years into the future. To keep them alive, they’ve been attached to the computer mainframe of the ship while their bodies waste away.
These characters are integral to the plot, and were the most fascinating characters for me to write. Just imagine questioning your own identity and humanity after so many years attached to a ship. One sister gave up
her love for this job, and every day she questions her choices. I don’t want to give too much away, but in the end of the book, she’s faced with the hardest choice of them all.
My question for you is: would you give up love to keep your twin sister safe and drive a colony ship to Paradise 18? How would you feel after doing the same job for so many years, you physically become part of it.
These are tough questions, and I can’t wait to see your answers!
