What if your very existence threatened the heart of power?
It’s the 21st century, right now, in America and on the surface everything looks just fine. But the commonly accepted image of society is an illusion. A clandestine force usurps the desires of individuals, and those who won’t conform must be crushed to preserve the appearance of free will.
Aranka is just a sixteen-year-old girl but a fluke in her genes makes her a threat. Those with power will stop at nothing to protect their supremacy. She is kidnapped by doctors who claim she’s sick with Ebola but it’s only a matter of time before it’s her turn to die.
A diverse band of outlaws from every corner of the globe represent the only hope of resistance. Kenyen, a young doctor, infiltrates to the heart of the oppression but he can’t stop the terror. He just wants to save one life. In the process he uncovers “the Seed,” the first flicker of hope in a thousand years.
This is the first book in The Kyrennei Series – a dystopian fantasy thriller of today’s world. The second book is The Fear and the Solace.
Arie Farnam grew up on Pumpkin Ridge, twenty miles north of La Grande, Oregon. She briefly attended La Grande High School as a freshman and later transferred to Spray High School in Central Oregon. She has been legally blind since birth and has always been interested in understanding how and why society accepts or rejects individuals.
When she was twenty two, she graduated from Lawrence University with a BA in Slavic linguistics and struck out for Eastern Europe to work as a freelance newspaper reporter. She received an equipment grant from the Oregon Commission for the Blind. Subsequently, she made a shoestring documentary with Afghani journalist Aref Jahesh in Kazakhstan and shot the film “Walls” with Dantia MacDonald and Mathew McClean in the Czech Republic, documenting that country’s racially segregated schools in the year 2000.
After writing about conflict and social justice issues for The Christian Science Monitor and Business Week in Kosovo, Bosnia, Macedonia and the Ukraine, she settled in the Czech Republic and married her long-suffering husband Dušan Blažek.
She has traveled and written in over thirty countries to date, including Bangladesh, Nepal, Kazakhstan, Zimbabwe, Malawi and Ecuador as well of most of Central and Eastern Europe. She has also written extensively about the discrimination faced by the Romani people of Europe.
She now lives in Mnichovice, a small town outside Prague, where she is raising two children, writing like the world is on fire, concocting herbal medicines and trying to live on the earth in a sustainable way.
