We’re going from ancient Alexandria into deep space for today’s edition of Styled by Books, featuring The Tomb by S.A. Bodeen, a cool new sci fi novel with a fascinating premise.
The book follows a teen who thought she was living in ancient Alexandria — until she learns it was all a lie, and she’s actually been experiencing a virtual reality while living in a sleep chamber on board a space ship.
I loved the deep space images of the cover, and it paired so nicely with this constellation dress I customized from eShakti. Some starry accessories added a little sparkle.
The Tomb is the first in a series, and the ending definitely leaves you with a bit of a cliffhanger — so I can definitely see this one leaving readers eager for the next installment.
Look for The Tomb in stores September 25th. Here is the official synopsis:
These are the first words Kiva’s best friend Seth says, after three years of silence.
Kiva thought she was growing up in ancient Alexandria. That’s what she and all her classmates had been led to believe by their parents. It turns out she was living in virtual reality, in a sleep chamber in deep space, and three years ago, Seth woke up. Now it’s her turn to join him.
Together, Kiva and Seth must take an escape shuttle to search for the engine part their home ship needs to keep running. But it’s been a long time since the Krakatoa has communicated with any of the other three ships harboring human civilization.
