Why you must read Carissa Andrews’ Pendomus
Humanity has colonized on a tidally locked planet known as Pendomus, a planet of extremes. Half eternal scorching desert and half perpetual arctic night. Surviving along the temperate band between the two, we’ve set up home in a complex known as the Helix. Within the Helix lies a highly sophisticated, highly technological society that seems to function solely on humans fulfilling their life’s purpose. That purpose is determined and nurtured through a person’s natural aptitudes, as read by their daily brain scans. Eating, sleeping, even procreation is handled by professionals. These basic concepts, no longer a part of society’s every day norm.
Sounds like a nightmare version of paradise. Who’s our main character? Are they satisfied?
Runa’s life takes an unforeseen turn when she’s brutally attacked, and left for dead in those woods near the Helix. Rescued by a stranger with blue hair, she’s immersed into a surprising way humanity has survived. Fueled by a yearning to belong, and an attraction she didn’t even know was possible, Runa wants desperately to make a new life. Yet, there’s much she doesn’t know about herself, about the planet and the forces controlling her from afar.
What she needs are some answers.
So is this science fiction, is it romance?
So it’s not aimed at the Twilight crowd, unless they are willing to try something new.
Let’s get back to Runa. Tell us about her.
Have you written any other books that we should read next?

Tell us a bit about yourself.
I am an accomplished graphic designer, so in my spare time when trying to get around my writer’s block, I would switch to being visual and design my cover.
