Listen to an Audiobook Sample of FORTUNE’S RISING by Sara King

Fortune’s Rising by Sara King just came out on June 15th, and you can listen to an audiobook sample here (narrated by Allyson Johnson.)

Here’s what the book is about:

Under the supertech Coalition government, Fortune’s colonists are enslaved to harvest the highly valuable brain-enhancing drug Yolk, often losing their sanity and lives in the process. The population is dying off and the planet is becoming a police state whose only purpose is to harvest Yolk. But a revolution is in the air, fueled by an unlikely band of rebels:

  • Anna Landborn, a brilliant, sociopathic child, and her quiet, lethally gifted sister, Magali;
  • Runaway Joel, a virtuous military pilot turned tormented smuggler;
  • Milar Whitecliff, a tattooed, chess-playing fugitive full of hatred and heart;
  • Doberman, a simple robot in the throes of a startling transformation;
  • and Tatiana Eyre, a captured Coalition soldier torn between loyalty and love.

As their paths and fates collide, the battle to spark a full-scale uprising is violently challenged by the Nephyrs, the government’s elite army of sadistic, near-indestructible cyborgs. But the prophecies of a mad soothsayer have foretold the coming of a hero destined to turn the tide—and the fight for freedom is just beginning.
