Set in a time that could almost become a reality, Tomorrows Child tells the story of a community who comes together as they try to survive in a world that has spiralled out of control.
Interwoven in this story of survival is the story of Psyche Darnell. We follow Psyche as she learns about the gift that she was destined to receive, but is not sure she wants; and as she learns how to come to terms with everything this gift brings with it. She also discovers her link to Phoenix and why she is drawn to him so strongly and why he is always in her thoughts and dreams.
Along the way we are introduced to a host of characters (not all of them good) and discover how they affect Psyche on many different levels.
Starr West has created a truly believable story that is well written and takes the reader on a journey through darkness and light. There are moments of suspense and others of deep feeling where you feel your heart breaking along with the characters involved.
This is truly a thought provoking story, about what really could happen in a post-apocalyptic world.
