The Creative Fire(Ruby's Song, #1)
Character-driven, social science fiction inspired by the life of Evita Peron
Nothing can match the power of a single voice...
Ruby Martin expects to spend her days repairing robots while avoiding the dangerous peacekeeping forces that roam the corridors of the generation ship the Creative Fire. The social structure of the ship is rigidly divided, with Ruby and her friends on the bottom. Then a ship-wide accident gives Ruby a chance to fight for the freedom she craves.
Her enemies are numerous, well armed, and knowledgeable. Her
weapons are a fabulous voice, a quick mind, and a deep stubbornness.
Complicating it all — an unreliable AI and an enigmatic man she met — and
kissed — exactly once — who may hold the key to her success. If Ruby can't
transform from a rebellious teen to the leader of a revolution, she and
all her friends will lose all say in their future.
Like the historical Evita Peron, Ruby rises from the dregs of society to hold incredible popularity and power. Her story is about love and lust and need and a thirst for knowledge and influence so deep that it burns.
