T.D. Fox is the author of The Walls of Orion duology, and the soon to come Shadow Walkers saga.
The Walls of Orion
Orion City has been on lockdown for ten years. Courtney Spencer, a disillusioned barista doomed to live a “normal” life in a quarantined fishbowl, is certain she’ll never see over the Wall again.
Until one rainy evening, Courtney unintentionally befriends W, an eccentric customer who leaves a switchblade in the tip jar. The unexpected acquaintance soon opens the door to a frightening string of questions that flips everything she knows upside down. Stumbling into a world of secrets, lies, and disturbing truths, Courtney grapples with a burning temptation to look again at the Wall. Surrounded by citizens trained to ignore its looming shadow, Courtney no longer can.
Intrigued and terrified to expand her world, Courtney finds herself toeing a knife’s edge between the law and justice, learning quickly that the two are not always compatible.
She wants to cling to her morals. She also wants to stay alive. But most of all, she wants to see a certain customer again, despite everything in her whispering W is dangerous.
In a gritty urban clash of hope and fear, passion and survival, The Walls of Orion explores the edges of light, dark, and the gray in between.
City of Loons
There aren't many places to run in a city surrounded by a wall.
Courtney Spencer has left her safe, normal life behind. Joining up with Orion City's #1 Most Wanted man, she plunges headfirst into an underworld she never knew existed—a realm full of Changers, like herself, willing to do whatever it takes to bring Orion's darkest shadows into the light of day.
But W's plan for justice may reach further than she's willing to go. With a murderous organization on their heels, and her detective ex-boyfriend not far behind, Courtney must rely on dangerous new friends to bring down AITO and the Wall once and for all. But when using her newfound ability means risking her own sanity, and her ties to W put her in danger of falling in more ways than one, Courtney will need to fight to become someone who can bring true justice—without losing herself, or her heart, in the process.
Packed with suspense, heart-pounding action, and forbidden romance, this thrilling conclusion to The Walls of Orion duology tests the boundaries between villain and hero, revenge and revolution, and raises poignant questions for a world not so far-off from the world within the Wall.
