by L. Salt
Genre: Futuristic Urban Drama
St. Petersburg, Russia, 20XX.

Four best friends, young, talented and ambitious try to find their own way

in a reality where people can’t speak and even think freely.

Laura Danco is a young talented designer who returns to the city after

studying and working in the UK. Friends tell Laura about new

controlling institution, the Department of Censorship. All media

sources are under control, government opposition is destroyed

completely, minorities are under threat. Everyone who resists is


Laura tries to live an ordinary life of every young

person in a big city–friends, relationships, travels,

parties…Everything is changing when a reputable design company

employs her as an assistant to a dangerously attractive, scandalous

architect and designer, Daniel Polanskiy, whose ambitious and

outstanding projects don’t comply with the government views and its

dictated taste. Daniel’s colleagues believe he is insane, the press

calls him “Russian Gaudi”, the Department of Censorship

watches his every movement.

The situation becomes even more

complicated, when Laura meets her Uni-mate from the UK, Mark Evans.

Completely lost between two absolutely different

characters–friendly, amiable Mark and sophisticated, bad-tempered,

but ingenious Daniel–she struggles to whom to give her heart.

The future looks bleak for Laura, as the company gets into trouble, when

the Tax Office conducts a detailed financial audit, the Department

gives Daniel the final warning, and one of Laura’s friends is killed

by his boyfriend. The plot leads characters through many

challenges–from love to betrayal, from revenge to a murder. The

story which starts like a comedy is turning into a tragedy. Will

friends find their way to follow?

This is book 1 of the duology.
Laura and friends are back in book 2, “Angels of Zion”.
