“We’re Federation officers. We swore to uphold the laws of our Federation. If we want change, we have to do it the right way.”
Lt Cairo Wilson, a decorated military officer, never questioned her duty to the New Earth Federation she served. So when a Federation general sends her to investigate suspected terrorist activity in a colony on the other side of the Federation, she gladly accepts. It was simple — gather information and head back to the Capital.
But she finds way more than what she signed up for.
There’s a growing army of disgruntled colonists getting ready for a revolution. New City, an enemy of the Federation, has set up shop on Federation territory in secret. In the middle of it all is her best friend and fellow officer London Chandler, whose loyalty to the Federation remains unclear.
With colony after colony falling to the death and destruction of a murderous rebellion, Cairo must do what she was trained to do – protect those who cannot protect themselves. That includes her estranged family, an ex-lover, and a New City scientist seeking a new life. But with the betrayals and conspiracies, she learns along the way, was the Federation doomed to fall from the start?
The Fall mixes classic adventure sci-fi with YA-style exploration of cultural restrictions and the younger generation’s rebellion against them;….the book overall was well-written and an enjoyable read – I would recommend it to sci-fi readers, especially those in the younger age brackets.” By Riite of Word
McGriff’s science fiction novel is an action-packed ride set on a world colonized by the descendants of Old Earth. The ride is full of betrayals and revelations. And not everyone is who they appear to be….McGriff makes you keep turning the pages as you follow Lt. Cairo Wilson on her journey to warn the capital of the impending rebellion, and her emotional journey as she makes peace with those who have hurt her in the past.” Meghan T.
The characters are intriguing, the world is massive, and the plot is enthralling in a way that makes me glad to know that when I finish this novel there are more for me to read. Larkin W.
