One hundred years have passed since the dreaded bacteria attacked humanity, causing women to become sterile and shortening men’s lives. Marauding bands kidnapped children, now the most precious commodity on Earth. Only those living in the coldest lands have survived. A strange silver liquid covered the skins of a few chosen ones, giving them extraordinary powers. These Silversuiters became the sworn protectors of the world leaders. Hero teachers saved thousands of children and evolved into the most respected leaders on the planet. As generations passed, they became more powerful and finally absolute dictators. L’ora R’oak and her companion, rogue Silversuiter Fourth, become the heads of the resistance to overpower the Supreme Teacher and the Tenured Council.
About the author:
Beverley Blount lives in El Paso, Texas and Mexico City where she has completed 30 years of training teachers in her Montessori schools. She is now consulting in schools in Mexico and the United States.
Under her pen name, B. Palma, she has written seven bilingual books in the Palo Alto series for young adults. Palma’s books weave her husband’s tales of growing up on his family’s haciendas with her own adventurous teens in the Mexican countryside. Their lifetime love of horses is reflected in these Palo Alto adventure books.
Silversuit III is her first Science Fiction adventure book and Silversuit I and II will soon follow, tying the 100 years back to the last Palo Alto book; Love’s End — And Then. Blount’s most recent book; The Blount Guide to Phonic Reading, is the result of her life’s work in sharing with children and adults her passion for reading.
