“This action-packed speculative novel will have you reading long into the night.”
“Howes thoughtfully extrapolates from current events to create a chilling, all-too-plausible future. Vividly sketched, deeply sympathetic characters and high-stakes, adrenaline-fueled plotting propel the tale to a cathartic close. Intelligent, action-packed, and emotionally charged.”
“Documentary filmmaker Howes’ debut novel treats readers to a reflective, futuristic adventure story that’s full of twists and turns while also offering thoughtful commentary on issues that are all too real in our here and now: medical ethics, equity and inclusion, and personal freedom.”
“A propulsive drive straight into the dark heart of American dystopia, with a flickering hope as our guide. I could not put down this book—Howes’ killer storytelling wouldn’t let me.”
—David Yoon, New York Times bestselling author of Version Zero and City of Orange
“The Awoken is a phenomenal story—filled with action, romance, plot twists, and a few big juicy reveals! It is a heart-pounding tale that helps people not only process what is happening in the world around them, but also to understand how they can actively play their part to create a more accepting future. I can’t wait for readers to discover Alabine.”
