Ask Raffi Delgado. He knows all about it.
Set in the late 22nd century, Chronosphere follows the adventures of teenager Raffi and his friends Dario, Jonah, Lastara and Sal in the Chronosphere, the sprawling holiday resort you go when you’ve bought time out of time. At first all is well, but something disturbing bubbles beneath the glossy exterior of the ‘paradise’ that is the Chronosphere.
In Book 1, 'Time Out of Time', the Secrocon Police are out in force to catch whoever is responsible for a series of teenage kidnappings, and when they say 'freeze', they mean it! When Dario and Raffi are arrested and sent to a horrific subterranean gulag, they discover a girl who is living her life backwards, but why? And how?
With mystery, fun, danger, twists and turns, Chronosphere is a mesmerising glimpse into a dark future where the fun of hoverbiking, air-tennis and trips to the holoplex are all held in check by the firm grip of a police state.
