About the Book
Ideal for Hunger Games and Divergent fans, Crystal Marcos delivers Novus, a riveting novel set in a dystopian future of action-adventure, suspense, and romance. Intriguing characters and a gripping storyline keep the reader turning page after page.
Being a teenager is hard enough. And what if your life's path is predetermined? On top of that, you aren't even Human?
Cayden was given life as a Cresecren. He expected to live out his days with the dysfunctional Human family he was assigned to serve. One fateful night, however, landed him in Gavaron, the home of maimed, elderly, or defiant Cresecren.
Beyond its borders is the Den, an area much more dangerous than he ever imagined. Now seventeen, Cayden unwittingly becomes involved in a conspiracy and is one of a handful of survivors fleeing a deadly attack. They set off on a perilous journey in search of refuge and the truth. Along the way, Cayden begins to comprehend the difference between fully living and merely surviving, while trying to balance his emotions and a forbidden love.
Novus is a real page-turner and I highly recommend picking up a copy." - BeachBoundBooks

"I found this book to be quite intriguing. I loved the idea of the cresecrens as it is unique and I haven't read anything like it. The story was steadily paced and the characters were well developed. I really connected with Cayden and his gang. I found the action scenes to be well designed and the obstacles that they encountered were believable and surprising." - Amazon Reviewer
