Happy Book Birthday to Stefanie Gaither!

abyss-coverPlease help us celebrate with Stefanie Gaither whose YA science fiction thriller, INTO THE ABYSS, releases today from Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers!

INTO THE ABYSS is the sequel to FALLS THE SHADOW, Stefanie’s 2014 hit debut:

“A different twist on a post-apocalyptic tale, Falls the Shadow is a very engaging read and hard to put down until the last page.” —VOYA, starred review

“FALLS THE SHADOW takes weird science and makes it a whole lot weirder. Debut author Stefanie Gaither explores what happens when bleeding-edge science collides with the human experience. Highly recommended.” –Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of ROT & RUIN

Violet has lost her memory, and her sense of self — but can she decide who she wants to be in time to save the world? Find out in this sequel to Falls the Shadow, which Kirkus Reviews called perfect “for fans of Divergent and The Hunger Games.”

Violet Benson used to know who she was: a dead girl’s clone, with a dead girl’s memories. But after Huxley’s attempt to take over the government left her memories and personality wiped, all she has left is a mission: help the CCA fight back against the rest of Huxley’s deadly clones that are still at large.

But when a group of clones infiltrate CCA headquarters, Violet is blamed. Already unsure of where her loyalties should lie, Violet finds herself running away with an unlikely ally: Seth, Jaxon’s unpredictable foster brother. With Seth at her side, Violet begins to learn about a whole new side of her city’s history—and her own.

But when she learns the shocking truth about cloning, Violet will have to make a choice—and it may be one that takes her away from everyone she ever loved.
