Worlds collide in debut author Jennifer Wilson’s graphic dystopian series where Divergent meets Mad Max. 

Since witnessing her parents’ murders at the age of eleven, Phoenix’s only purpose in life has been to uphold her mother’s dying words – to be strong and survive. But surviving outside of The Walls – outside of The Sanctuary – is more like a drawn-out death sentence. A cruel and ruthless city, Tartarus is run by the Tribes whose motto is simple, “Join or die.” 

Refusing to join and determined to live, Phoenix fights to survive in this savage world. But who can she trust, when no one can be trusted? Not even herself…

The first of a trilogy, New World Rising is an epic tale of survival, instinct, trauma, and the extraordinary power of human connection.

“Savage and raw, Jennifer Wilson pulls no punches in this blood tingling dystopian.” Kimberly Derting, award-winning author of The Pledge Trilogy


“If we keep punishing people for what their parents or their ancestors have done, the world as a whole can never move forward. Society will never grow.” 

                      “In all of my adventures, nothing ever smelled quite like an old book.”

“There is no good or evil here, it all depends on what side you’re standing. Nor is it about wrong or right, it’s about surviving.” Triven”

  1. A 5 star read and I already own this book! (Thank you Owlcrate!) Guess I need to read this one soon. It just makes me a little nervous to start it because you said it reminds you of Divergent and I didn’t much care for that series. I liked the first one, hated the last two.
