Debut author Gretchen Powell (that’s me!) brings you Terra, the first novel in the Terrestrials series. Published by Hopewell Media, the book follows protagonist Terra Rhodon through a dystopian future where the planet’s natural resources have been depleted and the rich and powerful have fled to cities in the sky. Eighteen-year-old Terra makes her living as a scav, collecting valuable recyclables to turn in for profit. Terra’s life is changed forever when a routine scavenging run leads her to a discovery that turns her world upside down. From there, she finds herself being rapidly introduced to a world she never knew, as well as to Adam, a boy unlike any she has ever met. But Adam has secrets, and with him by her side, Terra embarks on a journey that leads to an earth-shattering revelation – one that will test the bonds of loyalty, family, and love.

Terra is available on Kindle, Nook, Kobo, iBook, and in paperback.
