Blog Tour + #Giveaway: GROND: The Raven High by Yuri Hamaganov @yaboundtourspr

GROND: The Raven High
by Yuri Hamaganov
Genre: YA Scifi
Release Date: April 2017


In the year 2086, Earth is exhausted. The seas have been emptied, the bedrock and soil stripped of their resources, and the superheated atmosphere churns with terrible storms. Those who can afford to do so live in the limbo of virtual reality, and the billions who suffer in poverty have no work, no clean water, and no security from the chaos.

The only hope for those trapped on a dying Earth are the Changed—the seven bioengineered post-humans who work in their separate manufacturing facilities orbiting high above the planet. Raised from birth for their work and fully matured at ten years old, their genius provides the nanomaterials that have begun to cleanse Earth of the pollutants that have wiped out almost the entire ecosphere. 

But for Olga Voronov, youngest of the Changed, the isolation and endless toil are not the greatest of her challenges. Down on Earth there are those who resent and fear her talents—and would prefer that humanity not be given the second chance that only she could make possible …

What is your favorite time period? Please tell us why this is your favorite time period.

The Hagakure says:

"Although one would like to change today’s world back to the spirit of one hundred years or more ago, it cannot be done. Thus it is important to make the best out of every generation.”

The best time for me, you and everyone else who lives now is today. The best and only possible option. Awareness of this fact greatly simplifies life.

But, despite the fact that my best day is today, this circumstance doesn’t prevent me from loving other times. Each era, every century, and in the twentieth century every decade has its own special charm, a choice for every taste.

And of all the interesting times, my favorite is the beginning of the twentieth century, from the year nine hundred and to the First World War.

The world is changing so fast as never before. Baleen men in cylinders and monocles, and ladies with umbrellas, in long dresses and huge hats very funny and quickly move on the black and white frames of the silent chronicle. Steamers and locomotives are everywhere, the heavenly kingdom for a steampunk fan. Electric lighting everywhere replaces gas, telephone and radio become an ordinary thing. A man learns to fly, swim under water and ride the earth faster and faster. Great scientists create history in their laboratories. The era of science fiction and comics begins, a fundamentally new kind of art is born - a cinematograph. A great time when the belief in progress was stronger than ever.

Then there will be August of the fourteenth year, and people belatedly realize that progress has its own, heavy price. But it will be later. In the meantime, happy and carefree people are very funny and quickly move on the black and white frames of the silent chronicle.

All the best,

Yuri Hamaganov
