ABOUT S.L. WALLACE
S.L. Wallace is a teacher and life long writer who is a descendant of the famous William Wallace. Like him, she believes in freedom and independence. Unlike him, she fights her battles with the pen. In addition to being a writer, Wallace is an upper elementary Montessori teacher. She believes in guiding each student toward his or her full potential and in respecting people for the unique individuals they are.
Greed. Power. Class division. Resistance.
While Guy and Keira navigate their way through a Terenian society that enforces the separation of classes, April is haunted by her past. Now known as Aimee LaFleur, she returns to Tkaron to open an art gallery. Everything seems to be going well, except for the nightmares.
Will they be able to close the Divide and rid their society of a severely corrupt Gov? Will Aimee ever be free? And who can be trusted?
In book two of the Reliance on Citizens trilogy, S.L. Wallace delves deeper into political intrigue as we examine the bonds that make us human, blending the genres of action, sci-fi, romance and political suspense.
I dried myself and started to dress when my stomach grumbled with displeasure. Just then a delicious aroma wafted in from the kitchen. I turned away from the closet. My clothes would still be there after breakfast.
When I walked into the dining room, Guy turned. He looked startled and...terrified? Directly behind him stood an older couple. Company? No, not just company. In that second, I knew. The man's blue eyes and the woman's sandy brown hair were identical to Guy's.
I jumped back into the bedroom and slammed the door,then leaned against it. What a wonderful first impression, Keira. Way to go! You've been with their son for over a year, and this is how they meet you?
Seconds later, the doorknob turned. I stepped back, out of view and heard Guy mumble something about needing a few minutes.
Then he asked it, the big question. The one we'd never even discussed because it was impossible and so very much against everything I believed in. Marry him? Absolutely not! Give the Gov an easy way to track me? It was ridiculous! I couldn't marry him. I couldn't marry anyone.
I took another step back and shook my head. “No, I can't.”
