Description

At five years old, Cassidy had outlived almost Earth's entire population. Now, at sixteen, she's in a forbidden relationship with an unworthy Earth boy.

Cassidy Jones was five years old when her parents escaped Earth with her and her brother. They were safe in Earth's orbit in the town of Petriville—hovering at the center of an indestructible sphere—when the meteor impacted Earth and killed Cassidy's grandparents, aunt and cousin.

But now, eleven years later, Gina Petri, Petriville's founder, assigns a mate to each youth. When Cassidy refuses to participate in this forced mating, her dissent places her and her family in Gina's firing line. This becomes especially pertinent when Cassidy enters a communication pod and meets an alluring hologram. Eric isn't in Petriville and he insists Gina will murder his people if she discovers their existence, because he is one of Earth's few survivors.

The more Cassidy gets to know Eric, the more she's drawn to him—and the feeling seems mutual. He has lost so much in his life and her compassion for him runs deep. Despite the intensity of the static electricity when Cassidy and the hologram of Eric touch, she yearns for the day when she will meet him in person.

All the questions will be answered when Petriville returns to Earth, and that day is quickly approaching...

The renascent world by Carryb W. Kerry.
At five years old, Cassidy had outlived almost Earth’s entire population. Now, at sixteen, she’s in an impossible relationship with an unworthy Earth boy.
Cruel, dark mystery laces Petriville, the town that long ago saved Cassidy Jones and her family from the meteorite strike. While Earth perished they thrived in a blissful utopia, orbiting Earth within the town’s indestructible sphere.
Now sixteen, Cassidy discovers how Gina, Petriville’s founder, manipulated her family when Gina reveals Cassidy's assigned mate. Cassidy refuses Jonas but things get worse when she meets Eric, an alluring hologram—especially after he reveals the true extent of Gina's malice. It's much worse than Cassidy realized. Stranger still, is that Cassidy and Eric's attraction seems unnatural. And that passion intensifies after the two share a virtual kiss.
Cassidy yearns to meet Eric in person. But Eric is still on Earth and Gina, when she gets her hands on Eric, intends for him to follow the rest of Earth's citizens—into the grave.
All the questions will be answered when Petriville returns to Earth, and that day is quickly approaching…
A really good read. Different. Liked the cover. 4*.

This is the story about Earth's survivors living on a satellite environment after a catastrophic meteor strike. T"hey continue to search for life that still exists on the planet while thriving in their new environment. One day a boy is seen on Earth in the periphery of the camera frame. From that point on, it is a thrilling race to find a way to communicate and to maybe repatriate the survivors on Earth. There is, of course, a sinister force at work to control both the satellite colony and the remnants on the planet. It is an entertaining read with great character development. Although it followed an expected chronology, I enjoyed the rich details in the story and the twists and turns in the adventure. This is a stand-alone book but the end leaves enough unexplored to allow for the story to continue.
