Alexandra Duncan writes science fiction for young adults, including Salvage and Sound. She’s also a former member of the Spellbound staff and we’re beyond excited to celebrate the release of her newest novel on its publication day.
Inspired by current environmental issues, specifically the genetic adjustment of seeds to resist blight and the risks of not allowing natural seed diversity, Blight is a stand-alone action-adventure story that is Margaret Atwood’s Oryx and Crake meets Nancy Farmer’s House of the Scorpion. When an agribusiness facility producing genetically engineered food releases a deadly toxin into the environment, seventeen-year-old Tempest Torres races to deliver the cure before time runs out.
