Julia Keller’s The Dark Intercept is a thought-provoking science fiction adventure series that challenges the voluntary surrender of liberties for the perception of safety.
In a radiant world of endless summer, the Intercept keeps the peace. Violet Crowley, the sixteen-year-old daughter of New Earth’s Founding Father, has spent her life in comfort and safety. Her days are easy thanks to the Intercept, a crime-prevention device that monitors emotion. But when her long-time crush, Danny Mayhew, gets into a dangerous altercation on Old Earth, Violet launches a secret investigation that will lead her to question everything she’s ever known about Danny, her father, and the power of the Intercept.
“The Dark Intercept grabbed me from the first page and shook me until the last. A riveting and suspenseful story of love, risk, and betrayal.”—Emmy Laybourne, author of Berserker
