The Awakening of Artemis

A stunning thriller set in a world where the elites make the rules and artificial intelligence enforces them, The Awakening of Artemis is a remarkable story of one woman’s personal journey with enough plot twists to keep readers guessing to the very end. 

Set in 2049 America, it is the story of Diana Gutierrez-Adams, a U.S. Space Force officer and war hero. She is tasked with retrieving her cryogenically frozen grandfather from a remote region outside the “pods” where 90% of the population live. When she and her military unit are captured by a domestic militia, she is caught up in a conspiracy that reaches higher than anyone can imagine. 

To evade a devious enemy who is one step ahead of them at every turn, Diana must outsmart a global monitoring system that tracks her every move. On a trail littered with the dystopian remains of middle-class America, she comes face-to-face with an artificial intelligence that threatens the future of all humankind.
