REINCEPTION WILL CHANGE YOUR MIND...whether you want it or not
A hundred years in the future, ReInception is used to modify the brain and eliminate unwanted behaviors--everything from overeating to the worst criminal impulses. Unmodified 20-year-old Leandrea Justus feels ordinary compared to her perfect friends who like living in a ReInception world. Not everyone is in favor of modification--some remain quiet, while others are outwardly insubordinate. After a protest turns violent, a rogue member of the serving class known as The Prole saves Leandrea and exposes a new reality to her: The true purpose of ReInception may be far more nefarious than advertised. Now, her free will may be her greatest asset. But Leandrea's discoveries about ReInception are putting her life at stake. Can she save society or will the secrets she uncovers start a Civil War? ReInception is a fiction-debut, the first in a new, action-filled sci-fi trilogy with surprising twists, and a story that may be closer to reality than we think.

This book may be futuristic, but it is not really that far off to imagine it could be a reality. Now with more mention of AI technology. That is what makes this book that more intriguing. Instantly, I felt as if I was transported into this world.
Leandrea is a relatable character. I felt for her because she was an unlikely hero. She did not plan to be a savior but when it came time for her to help, she did not question but was ready for battle. She is not alone as she is accompanied by Izabelle and Ward and a few others.
Because I was invested in Leandrea and the world that author, Sarena built, that I found this book to be a quick read. I do look forward to reading more books by this author. ReInception is going to get you!
About the AuthorI write novels for the curious and adventurous, for people who are intrigued by a “what happens if,” scenario, and who like to explore the outcomes. My characters are ordinary people who find out that they are capable of extraordinary things and discover that one person can truly make a difference. After receiving a BA in art history and political science from Barnard, I graduated from Fordham University School of Law. I then worked for five years at the Bronx District Attorney’s Office (BXDA), where I prosecuted sex crimes and child abuse cases. After leaving BXDA, I published a true-crime memoir, Bronx DA: True Stories from the Sex Crimes and Domestic Violence unit (Barricade, 2006). In 2010, my book sold as a TV Pilot to CBS/Paramount. I’ve gone on to publish numerous legal articles and works of poetry, and I was an editor for a legal magazine. For a few years, I was also a talking head, commenting on current criminal cases in the media on tv and radio. Today, I live in the Hudson Valley, NY with my husband, our two children (also budding writers), two naughty Labrador retriever ladies, and two barn cat boys. I’m now working on sequels to my debut novel ReInception and will keep you posted about them on my site. When not writing or lawyering, I love to scuba dive, take photographs, and travel off the beaten path. I’ll swap diving or courtroom stories with you all day long or happily talk to you about books–writing them or reading them! R&R Book Tours
