Watch the promo for the first title in Helen Brain’s Elevation trilogy

16 year old Ebba has never known life outside the underground bunker known as the Colony.

In a sudden twist of fate she is elevated to join the elite who enjoy life on the surface in a post-apocalyptic world. But why was she saved and who is the mysterious great aunt who has left her a fortune?

The High Priest and his handsome son Hal are especially keen to keep her close, but things are not as they seem. When Ebba learns she has a sacred task to find four lost amulets so that Theia, the Earth Goddess, can regain power and save the Earth from a second and final Calamity, her life changes forever.

The first title in a fast-paced dystopian fiction trilogy set in a futuristic Cape Town.

Helen Brain was born in Perth and grew up in Durban. She has written over 50 books for children and young adults, as well as a memoir for adults entitled Here Be Lions. Her teen novel, Tamara won an ATKV prize in 1998. She teaches part time at an international online writing college. She lives in Cape Town with her husband and two dogs.
