PRAISE FOR THE 13TH CONTINUUM:
“The books I loved as a YA reader profoundly informed my life. So I’m excited for all who are about to discover The 13th Continuum. Jennifer Brody has brought muscular, propulsive writing and big ideas to bear on an ambitious, dystopian landscape that dares to look past the near horizon. And dares to hope.”―Mark Ordesky, Executive Producer of The Lord of the Rings
“Non-stop excitement and strong world-building combine to make The 13th Continuum a fantastic read for science fiction and dystopian fans alike. The story sucked me in from the very beginning, and had me pulling for Myra and Aero to break free from their very different, but equally oppressive governments. Eagerly awaiting the next in this series!” ―Rysa Walker, bestselling author of The Chronos Files
“I tore through Jennifer Brody’s The 13th Continuum at light speed. This fresh, fast-paced novel featuring a post-doom Earth will hook readers with its likable characters and thrilling stakes. But it’s the book’s action and hope for a better future that will keep readers turning the page and leave eager for the next installment.” ―Mindee Arnett, critically acclaimed author of Avalon and the Arkwell Academy series
“The 13th Continuum manages to be smart, surprising, and a good time, all at once. That’s hard magic to pull off, but Jennifer Brody makes it seem easy. Swift and surprising, this novel is such a confident debut. Here’s to many more.”―Victor LaValle, author of New York Times Notable Book of the Year, The Devil in Silver
With meticulous world-building and an epic scope, Jennifer Brody has created a fascinating sci-fi story. Readers will flip the pages, anxious to answer a question that will determine the future of humanity: Will they reach the surface? ―Pintip Dunn, New York Times bestselling author of Forget Tomorrow
“A fascinating premise and compulsively readable debut. It totally sucked me in.” ―Robin Talley, author of Lies We Tell Ourselves
“This gripping read is recommended not only for advanced teen readers, but for adults who enjoy solid sci-fi dystopian settings.” – Donovan’s Bookshelf
“Brody writes an intelligent narrative that is entertaining as it is introspective about the human race, its fate and where we might end up.”-Roanoke Times
“Fans clamoring for a new dystopian science fiction series may appreciate this latest addition to the genre.” – School Library Journal
ABOUT THE BOOK:
One thousand years after a cataclysmic event leaves humanity on the brink of extinction, the descendants of the chosen survivors take refuge in thirteen contingency shelters buried deep underground, at the bottom of the ocean, and in the far reaches of outer space. In the underwater 13th Continuum, sixteen-year-old Myra Jackson has heard rumors and whisperings all her life of a magical place called “The Surface” where people could breathe fresh air, feel the warmth of something called sunlight on their skin, and see things known as stars and trees and mountains. Myra has never dared to ask whether the stories are true, since the act of speaking such words aloud is an offense punishable by death. But after she discovers that the air supply aboard her underwater colony is running out, she realizes that her only hope for survival is to find this mysterious place. To get there, she must first recover the only guide to the Surface―the Beacon, an ancient device that also connects her to Captain Aero Wright, a dashing young soldier from one of the only remaining space colonies. With the fate of all humankind depending on them, Myra and Aero must escape the tyrannical forces that rule their colonies, journey through the black depths of the ocean and across the cold void of space, to find each other on the Surface that their ancestors once called home.
Better yet … the second book Return of the Continuums is coming November 1st! I’ll be doing tons of giveaways and events in the next few months, so follow me on social media for your chance to win even more stuff!

THE SECRET QUESTION:
What’s your favorite way to kill a character?
- Buried Alive
This is a HARD one (and I secretly love killing off characters)… but I have to go with DROWNED. My book features an underwater colony located in a deep-sea trench called The 13th Continuum, where the punishment for breaking the strict laws is being put out to sea. You can imagine how that goes! Hint: it’s not pretty. You’ll have to read the book to learn more!
