A flesh-eating virus is spreading… Being immune puts Deter in worse danger
Deter Edison is an ordinary girl, or so she thought…
After a brutal kidnapping, Deter finds herself propelled into a world that she knows nothing about. Her scientist captors want something that only she has – an incredibly rare gene – and they’ll stop at nothing until they get it.
Feeling betrayed by her guardian, Amery, Deter’s world turns upside down when she’s plummeted into a war with the government and her captors. She must flee to London to seek protection there, but she doesn’t know who she can trust. And even if she does make it to safety, how can she remain hidden from the Establishment?
Sophy Layzell lives in Ilminster, Somerset and is the Founder and Trustee for the Jemima Layzell Trust, Artistic Director of Make Performing Arts and Bookkeeper for J Layzell and Sons. Her daughter Jemima is the UK record holder for most organ transplant recipients. Since her daughter’s passing, Sophy set up the Trust and has been fundraising ever since.
Sophy says, “For the past few years I have been defined, and it might sound odd, but inspired by the death of my daughter Jemima. Everyone loves a fast-paced adventure to become lost in and by writing this I have created a unique world that reflects Jemima’s and other young people’s influence on my life. Having worked with students aged 8-18 for many years, helping them write plays to express issues they are passionate about, this book is very much inspired by them too. My world is a better place with stories in it.”
