About the Book
WHAT IF YOU LIVED IN A HIGH-TECH WORLD
WHERE CHRISTIANITY WAS ILLEGAL?
WHAT IF THEY WILL ERASE YOUR MEMORIES WHEN THEY FIND OUT?
AND WHAT IF MEMORIES… HOLD FAITH?

The year is 2050.

The Dogma Wars have decimated the world. Now society is rebuilt on the ruins of a few remaining cities. Thanks to the miracle-drug Theta-66, there is no more crime, sickness, or religion, so life is perfect and peaceful. Unless you are a Christian.

When Pogs capture JulieAnn Bishop’s Misfit family, taking them to the memory-obliterating Shot, she alone must rescue them from a hostile, high-tech world. She makes her way from the only home she’s ever known on the heights of the Angeles forest, to Hilltown, the capital of North Newland, a sky-high glass city rising from the ruins of Los Angeles.

Quickly swept into a strange world where right is wrong, friends are enemies, and everything pivots on a virtual Game, JulieAnn races to find clues about her family’s whereabouts before super-soldier Pogs discover her Misfit faith and submit her to Theta-66.

Are Brazilian jiujitsu, forest survival skills, and a knowledge of the Bible enough for the invisible, virtual, and real-life battles? Or will she trade her soul to protect her life? The fight is real, and it’s not fiction.

About the Author
Darlene N. Bocek

Darlene Bocek and her family live in Izmir, Turkey. Making the Bible accessible, the main message of her stories, is dear to their family's heart.  Besides being a pastor's wife, she is mom to four wonderful young adults, each one her most favorite.  She spends "most" of her time in front of the washing machine, and her spare time writing (or vice-versa).

The family lives on an olive farm overlooking the Aegean sea in Turkey. To date, they have nine  sixteen twenty-four cats, three giant dogs, and two Havanese. Most pets are named for movie characters. Outside the kitchen window lives a dove named Noah with his wife and many children.

If she had free time, Darlene would enjoy cooking, gardening, painting, sewing, and training her wild animals.
