A broken and desolate Earth. A young girl simply trying to survive. A lost boy with a powerful secret.

A discovery that will change everything.


In the distant wake of a plague that has decimated the Earth's population, humanity is split in two: The rich and powerful live in skycities that float overhead, while those who remain on the ground have gathered in settlements strewn across a dying planet. Eighteen-year-old Terra Rhodon is a terrestrial--a denizen of the barren groundworld--who makes her living as a scav. Long abandoned by her father, her caregivers gone, Terra supports herself and her younger brother, Mica, by scouring the earth for discarded scraps and metals to recycle for profit. One day, while on a routine scavenging run, she discovers something that shocks her home settlement of Genesis X-16. When the value of her discovery is revealed, Terra's world is turned upside down.

Terra suddenly finds herself asking questions no one will answer. Her search for the truth leads her to Adam--a beguiling skydweller unlike any she has ever met. But Adam has secrets and a quest of his own. With him by her side, the world Terra thought she knew begins to unravel. Soon her discoveries unearth a terrifying conspiracy that has the potential to shatter everything--a revelation that will test the bonds of loyalty, family, and love.

The first book in debut author Gretchen Powell's anticipated Terrestrials series, Terra catapults you through a story filled with blood-pumping action, intrigue, and surprising twists that will wrench and warm your heart. As the hidden truths of this world unfold, the new dangers looming on the horizon are sure to leave you waiting breathlessly for the sequel.

Gretchen Powell grew up in far-off places. She is 24 years old, half-Chinese, and the owner of two adorable miniature schnauzers. They wear many sweaters.


By day, she types and types (and types and types) for personal, professional, and cathartic purposes. She is a lover of books both young and adult, but her favorite genre combines those terms.


By night, she binges on episodes of Doctor Who and sleeps fitfully.



Sometime in the mid-afternoon, she writes another blog, called "Honey, I Shrunk the Gretchen!" about food, fitness, and her life.

This book tour post was organized and designed by:
 

“Well, careful what you wish for,” I say with a grin, running my finger over the embossed lettering on the blueberry jar, “or you’ll end up with mine attached to your hip.”
“Could be worse,” Adam says. “At least your brother had the courtesy not to punch me in the face when he met me.” I turn to make a face at him, but the small space between us feels suddenly charged. I tuck a lock of hair behind my ear self-consciously and we both pull away from the cabinet.
“Mica shouldn’t get so attached,” I say suddenly. “He’s had enough people duck out on him.”
He shuts the cabinet door. “Mica has, huh?” he says, stepping toward me.
“Yes.” It comes out like a whisper.
There is a sudden and noticeable silence. I barely have time to step away from Adam before Mica bursts through the front door.
“Holy crap,” Mica says, his face flushed with excitement. “That was awesome!”
