The Blending Time


Gang, I’m all a-twitter. THE FIRES OF NEW SUN, part II in Michael Kinch‘s BLENDING TIME trilogy pubs this week!

Why this trilogy is awesome:

  1. One of my favorite female protagonists in y.a.
  2. Absolutely terrifying action that’s dark as hell and unflinching.
  3. An eerily plausible vision of the future (think Children of Men meets Apocalypse Now)
  4. “Full of action …a compelling, realistic, and exciting thriller.” ¬†– Kirkus Reviews
  5. “Entertaining, credible, scary, and memorable.” – Voya

The Blending Time

Guys, the BLENDING TIME by Michael Kinch drops today!

I’m so excited for this book (part one of a Trilogy from Flux). Check it out!

In the year 2069, turning seventeen means mandatory Global Alliance work assignments that range from backbreaking drudgery to deadly canal labor. trying to survive in a world that’s been ravaged by plagues and environmental disasters, three “s’teeners” from the harshest backgrounds think they’ve gotten lucky. Jaym, Reya, and D’Shay are chosen to be among thousands of blenders, whose task is to help repopulate and rebuild Africa after a devastating solar flare.

But the continent itself- roiling with civil war and mercenaries intent on crushing the blending program at any cost- poses the gravest danger. Separated, three friends struggle to escape the violence and chaos, and somehow reunite. But will following rumors of a mountain hideout lead them to sanctuary, or cost them their lives?
