Can the truth set you free?
The refugee caves have been destroyed, and most of the refugees are dead. The Potentate now knows of their existence and will stop at nothing to wipe them out completely. He suspects that terrorist Jackson MacNamera is among them, as well as reporter Kate Brandeis’s fiancé, hacker Will Anderson—and probably therefore Kate herself. Now that the Potentate is aware of security threats, most of the strategies the rebels used to get back onto the grid before now no longer work. The Potentate knows the rebels are on foot, and he knows they were at the caves not long ago—they can’t get far.
The remaining rebels, among them Jackson and Kate, have Kate’s fiancé Will to thank for their survival: he arrived back from the dead and in the nick of time, bearing classified information about the Potentate’s plans to expand his influence internationally. But the remaining rebels and the Council cannot agree on whether their top priority should be spreading truth far and wide and freeing as many citizens from government control as possible, knowing that they will likely die in the process—or escaping to New Estonia, in hopes that they might live out the rest of their days in peace.
Kate, meanwhile, finds herself torn: between Jackson and the fiancé she thought she lost, and between the damsel-in-distress she once was, and the rebel she believes she has always been underneath. Whether the other hunters will support her or no, she knows she must use her influence over the people of the Republic to tell them the truth, no matter the cost. But is she strong enough to withstand the government’s lies?
PRAISE FOR THE EDEN CONSPIRACY:
“C.A. Gray…has created a world that feels new and unexplored.” —Leigh, The Bookish Life
“It’s so well-written, that I had to stop reading at one point and consider whether I was actually living in the story’s world. If you’re looking for a smart, well-written, and entertaining dystopian fiction, then you should definitely give this series a try.” —Lindsey, Lindsey’s Library
“This book absolutely does not suffer from middle book syndrome. Rather than serve as a bridge between the first and third, this one could stand on its own. I found myself tearing through the pages, desperate to figure out what happens next.” —Tara, Spinatale Reviews
“The Eden Conspiracy did not disappoint… C.A. Gray’s style of writing is remarkable… she really knows how to write a compelling story with equally exceptional characters.” —Louisse, Serene August Reads
“Gray continues her streak of great writing. The Eden Conspiracy has action, the good fight, a strong female lead character, and a timely message on the perception of reality. Extremely well done.” —Joseph, Evilcyclist
