Age of Order, just released today, Feb. 6, is a brand new book from Julian North.
North’s book got an excellent review on Kirkus, where it’s been compared with Hunger Games and Divergent, as well as referencing Harry Potter:
In North’s debut YA novel set in a violently divided, high-tech New York City, a poor girl enrolls in a Manhattan school that serves as an enclave for the fabulously rich, powerful, and dangerous.
A promising debut that re-energizes tropes in the dystopian sci-fi genre.
I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek at this novel, and I am entranced. I was very impressed with Mr. North’s opening, and the way that, as a reader, I was completely captured into the moment, already wanting the character to make it to safety, entirely wrapped up in a story that there was been no preparation for, but I was already inside.
Main character Daniela lives in the barrio in a futuristic, dystopian New York City that most of us would barely recognize. By some stroke of luck, she is selected – a one-in-a-million-shot – to attend an elite school for the privileged in Manhattan… and that’s when things get interesting.
You’ll be rooting for Daniela, just as I was: A smart, tough, brave girl devoted to her friends and family, and determined to live well in an untenable life. I can’t think of a better heroine to stand up to the forces of oppression.
