Bright City, the first in a duology, is a coming of age story about Abigail Drexler, who is expelled from her utopian community for treason. Abigail journeys through the post-apocalyptic landscape of a world ravaged by plagues and devastating climate change, and becomes determined to find her way back home and avenge her friend. Eventually she ends up in the Bright City, a beautiful, information-driven society that thrives on intrigue and manipulation. Thrust into this treacherous new world, Abigail is wrapped in a conspiracy that pushes her to the edge of sanity and deeper into the corruption of the Bright City. In this new world of information as power and information as currency, will Abigail find the clues to her exile and the keys to her freedom?
