4.5 out of 5 Stars
Thank you to D.L. Richardson for having me on the tour today!!
World peace came with rules. We’ve just broken them.
In the year 2055, millions of humans were wiped out by a deadly virus known as EMB-II, a bioweapon strain of Ebola that could not be stopped. The need to get off the planet and into space was never stronger. Before the ships could be launched, First Contact was made. A dozen spaceships arrived, carrying twelve Criterion Advocates – peacekeepers of the universe – and thousands of Criterion soldiers, aides, workers, and engineers. To stop the virus getting into space, Earth was placed under quarantine and work begun to save the planet and humanity. Through tough control measures, world peace was achieved.
The year is now 2355. The virus is gone. Humanity is eager to get into space. Yet the Earth is still under quarantine. The Criterion are lying to us. What they don’t know is that we’re lying to them.
Kethryn Miller is an award-winning actress, but nothing will prepare her for the role she’ll take on when a strange woman who shouldn’t be alive turns up in the city, threatening to expose the lies that have kept peace on Earth for 200 years.
“Damn world peace. It wasn’t worth her happiness.”
D L Richardson has done it again!!! Did I ever doubt her? Not for a minute!!
A sci-fi dystopian novel that spoke to my tin foil hat clad, paranoid soul.
What if nothing was what you thought? Your life, your parents your society… All lies. I’m sure that any readers out there who have been on my blog for a while have heard me mention my favourite move “Southland Tales”, well this novel reminded me of that but on a much bigger scale!
I won’t spoil anything for anyone, but there are well written characters, amazing world building… Or should I say WORLDS building?? 🤔
It’s a book about stepping into another person’s shoes, about the cost of freedom, and who has to pay the price.

D L Richardson writes speculative fiction, which encompasses science fiction, light horror, supernatural fiction, and fantasy. When she’s not writing, she can be found wandering in her yard waging war on weeds, watching back-to-back episodes on Netflix, playing her piano or guitar, curled up on the couch reading a book, or walking the dog.
