December Love with Rivka Spicer

Hi everyone! My name is Rivka Spicer and I’m an author living in the far, frozen north of Scotland. Tilly has really kindly allowed me to post on her blog today so I thought I’d use the opportunity to tell you about my new book, Bloodlines.

It’s a post-apocalyptic dystopian Young Adult story following Piper and Kael as they navigate first love under the shadow of The Enclave. The official blurb is:
In the years after a virus wiped out most of the population, humanity was teetering on the brink of extinction and the new governing body enforced a law for survival; at the age of 16, all girls must travel to The Enclave, where they will spend two years producing children to ensure the propagation of the species.
9 generations later, Piper doesn’t want to go. Educated by parents that taught her to read and write, she sees The Enclave as a violation of her rights. Unable to escape her captors, she is plunged into a race against time to uncover the dark secrets and betrayals perpetuated by The Enclave. If she fails, she loses her right to choose the man she loves.
It was inspired by a discussion I had about A Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. If providing children was a duty, what would the impact of that be? Particularly when it comes at an age where everything is confusing.
