The Verona Trilogy

The Verona Trilogy

This week's sponsor is Lory Kaufman, author of The Lens and the Looker, The Bronze and Brimstone, and the recently released The Loved and the Lost, which together comprise The Verona Trilogy:

It’s the 24th century and humans,with the help of artificial intelligence (A.I.s), have finally created an almost perfect post-dystopian society.

To make equally perfect citizens for this world, the elders have created History Camps, full-sized recreation of cities from Earth’s distant pasts. Here teens live the way their ancestors did, doing the same dirty jobs and experiencing the same degradation. History Camps teach youths not to repeat the mistakes that almost caused the planet to die.

But not everything goes to plan.

The protagonists include three spoiled teens from the year 2347. Hansum, almost 17, is good-looking and athletic. Shamira, 15, is sassy, independent and an artistic genius. Lincoln, 14, is the smart aleck. But you don’t have to scratch too far beneath the surface to find his insecurities.

These three “hard cases” refuse the valuable lessons History Camps teach. But when they are kidnapped and taken back in time to 1347 Verona, Italy, they only have two choices: adapt to the harsh medieval ways or die.
