About the Book

The Last Life of Avrilis

As a Sentient living at the end of time --- 16 year-old Avrilis is one of the few to know that life repeats --- replaying a script exactly. As an orphan cloistered in her home for the past three years, she knows that even a scripted life can suddenly change. It has, this time around. Her mother died; her father disappeared. Her only companions have been the other planet in the sky --- her memory of a boy called Isaac --- and the protective “halo” that absorbs the electricity a Sentient creates by living off-script --- even if they didn’t have a choice.
 
Leaving home is Avrilis’ only chance at finding the real Isaac and uncovering what ruined her family’s script --- making this lifetime go so terribly wrong  --- but outside, zealots are preying on anyone who defies the planets with change. When Avrilis saves the life of a vagabond moments before he’ll die, she means him to be her protection. Instead --- the two find the subterranean Sentient city --- and that the father who abandoned her has a plan to end the world for good. Now she’ll cross the sky from her planet to the other and find out whether this world is worth saving --- as long as the zealots and the end of time don’t catch up to her first.
