Jennifer Brody’s award-winning novel The 13th Continuum sold to Turner Publishing in a 3-book deal and is being packaged into a feature film. The book is a Gold Medal Winner in Young Adult – Sci-Fi/Fantasy from the Independent Publisher‘s Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards. Return of the Continuums and The United Continuums (July 11, 2017) complete this epic trilogy. She lives and writes in LA.
After a cataclysmic event called the Doom destroys the surface of the Earth and leaves humanity on the brink of extinction, the descendants of the chosen survivors take refuge in thirteen contingency shelters known as Continuums buried deep underground, at the bottom of the ocean, and in the far reaches of outer space. They’re supposed to stay in exile for a thousand years and then to return to the Surface to recolonize Earth.
PRAISE FOR THE 13TH CONTINUUM:
"The books I loved as a YA reader profoundly informed my life. So I’m excited for all who are about to discover The 13th Continuum. Jennifer Brody has brought muscular, propulsive writing and big ideas to bear on an ambitious, dystopian landscape that dares to look past the near horizon. And dares to hope."
―Mark Ordesky, Executive Producer of The Lord of the Rings
"The 13th Continuum manages to be smart, surprising, and a good time, all at once. That's hard magic to pull off, but Jennifer Brody makes it seem easy. Swift and surprising, this novel is such a confident debut. Here's to many more."
― Victor LaValle, author of New York Times Notable Book of the Year, The Devil in Silver
"This debut is an exciting and well-built read."
"This gripping read is recommended not only for advanced teen readers, but for adults who enjoy solid sci-fi dystopian settings."
"Brody writes an intelligent narrative that is entertaining as it is introspective about the human race, its fate and where we might end up."
"Fans clamoring for a new dystopian science fiction series may appreciate this latest addition to the genre."
― School Library Journal
"An original and deftly crafted science fiction novel, The 13th Continuum is especially recommended for young readers ages 12 to 18 and would prove to be an enduringly popular addition to school and community library YA Fiction (and especially science fiction) collections."
