Near-future dystopian science fiction. The Cricket – a fast read by ZZ Adams, available now on Amazon. Eco-sci-fi set in a future Tokyo where water is scarce. A princess must reach deep to find the strength to save her people.
A world without water or compassion.
In the future, shifting weather patterns have left the nation of Japan a dried out dustbowl. The wealthy huddle beneath crystal domes, living the lies of the past, while the poor scrounge for food and jealously guard what moisture they can recycle.
Miyo lives inside the Imperial Palace at the heart of the city. Her days begin and end within its walls. Dust storms rage and howl against the dome, but below the crystal, the verdant gardens, koi ponds, waterfalls, and moats are pristine. In the palace, nothing ever changes. But even Miyo is aware that things beyond the walls are not what the Chancellor would have her believe. The people are parched and angry. There is talk of rebellion. But the Chancellor’s cruel fist controls all.
If only the cricket could escape the walls of her cage…
