Legacy Code

by Autumn Kalquist


A brutal conspiracy threatens humanity's survival. Three hundred years ago, the Earth died, and the last humans fled. Beaten. Broken in more ways than one. But there was something they couldn't leave behind: The Legacy Code—mangled genes that force them to abort half their unborn children. When Era and Dritan Corinth get placements on the safest ship in the fleet and win a chance to have a child, they feel lucky. Until the day Era's supposed to find out if her baby has the Defect, and the ship suffers a hull breach. An investigation uncovers new threats: Dangerous secrets. Lies. Treason. Era begins to question everything she’s been taught about the fleet, their search for a new Earth, and the Defect. But the answers she seeks were never meant to be found... Legacy Code is a suspenseful and dark genetic engineering science fiction series that has earned five star reviews from fans of some of the best sci-fi and fantasy books like Hunger Games, Divergent, and Red Rising, and has been compared favorably to Wool, 1984, and the new Battlestar Galactica. "Addictive sci-fi series. I haven't been this hooked on an author since Anne McCaffery's Killashandra series." ~ Marie Hall, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author What Readers are Saying: “One of the best books I've ever read, I can't wait to read the rest of the series.” “Space, spaceships, planets, wormholes, dystopian, pregnancy, oh my! I thoroughly enjoyed Legacy Code. It was a quick read for me, as I found it hard to put down. After the first few chapters I was hooked & couldn't get enough… A great mix of SciFi & Dystopian! One of my top favourite reads for 2014.” “Compelling post-apocalyptic novel about survival: Wow. That was... astounding. I really enjoyed reading this… Living in space inside space ships? Holograms? Post-apocalypse? Heck, yeah!” “I cannot get enough of the Fractured Era series. It's the best sci-fi series I've read since The Post-Human series by David Simpson.” “…An uncertain future has the colonists on edge, leading to acts of terrorism and assassination attempts on government officials… There are several intriguing elements at play, most significantly, the mystery of the Legacy Code and whether it holds the key to humanity's survival…I'm looking forward to continuing the series to see where it goes from here.” “A couple of chapters in and I was already hooked! I ended up staying up til midnight (as a mother of a toddler this is a rare occasion) in order to finish it.” “I just finished this book...at 6:00 AM. This society crafted by Autumn Kalquist is fascinating. I can't even imagine how much time she spent carefully plotting every detail. Their existence feels so real and so frighteningly possible.” “It kind of had an initial feel of Battlestar Galactica -- a civilization that has to abandon their planet and go in search of a new one. …It had mystery, a bit of a thriller like aspect, humor, and a taste of romance." “I both love and hate this book...but in a good way! Instantly I fell in love with the characters and storyline that Kalquist spun together…This story is based in the future (almost a space opera / dystopian) where the populations of earth escaped to space to find a better world. ...we arrive in a distant future where civilization exists on space ships and they have to take decades before making jumps across space -similar in a way to what I imagine Stargate” “It pulled me in faster than most books I have read and kept me on the edge of my seat through the end. I read it all in just a few hours." keywords: free science fiction books, free sci fi books, free science fiction, free sci fi, free space books, free space opera books, free ebooks, fiction books free, sci fi books free, science fiction books free, free mystery books, genetic engineering, space colony, space colonization, space opera, apocalypse, post-apocalyptic, generation ship, end of the world, space battle, space explorer
