Set in the Hive Future
Amber is one of over a million eighteen-year-olds in one of the great hive cities of twenty-sixth century Earth. She’s about to enter the Lottery of 2532, which will assess her abilities and decide her hive level, her profession, her whole future life. Amber’s dream is to be level 10 or above, her nightmare is to be a level 99 Sewage Technician.
When Lottery discovers Amber is a rare and precious telepath, she must adapt to a new life protecting the people of the crowded hive city. Her job is hunting down criminals before they commit their crimes, but she doesn’t know that she’s being hunted herself.

SF crowsnest “Anyone who enjoyed the ‘Earth Girl’ trilogy will love this. Like Jarra, Amber dances across the page with all the hopes and neuroses of any eighteen year-old. A good job well done.” See review
Books In Brogan “This was definitely a five-star book by a five-star author. Brilliant character development and a plot with a different kind of twist make this a great book for all ages.” See review
Brainfluff “All in all – another cracking read and the start of an exciting series from a writer who continues to produce thought-provoking and entertaining worlds.” See review
Kirkus Reviews “This sci-fi coming-of-age story finds young adults struggling against being complacent workers in a hive society.” “With vivid prose, Edwards also manages to make the hive spaces seem vast or claustrophobic by turns; along the way, she also offers a thorough analysis of the costs of isolationism—to individuals and to a nation as a whole.” See review
