Defective - Book One of the Fractured Era Series
Scientists have long predicted an inevitable mass extinction event capable of wiping out the human race. It has arrived.
In the early twenty-first century, pandemics ravaged humanity. From the wreckage, the Coalition rose with a cure: genetically modified children, immune to the deadliest diseases on Earth.
Every parent wanted a Protected child until a shocking discovery turned the blessing into a curse—and all the Protecteds were imprisoned.
Now the American South burns, and a mysterious quarantine zone has appeared. Whispers of another pandemic infect the continent with fear, but the Coalition is determined to keep the truth hidden at all costs.
Bas is an unmarked Protected and a resistance fighter. When a top agent goes missing behind quarantine lines, Bas and his team have one mission: rescue him… or make sure his secrets die with him.
Selene is also a Protected, hiding off the grid. As the quarantine zone creeps closer, it puts everyone she loves right in the Coalition’s path. But she'll do anything to keep her family safe, even if it means risking her freedom... and her life.
A small part of the Defective trilogy storyline was originally published in the limited release "Defect" episodes, which are no longer available.
The rest of Autumn's e-books can be purchased exclusively on Amazon.

"Addictive sci-fi series. I haven't been this hooked on an author since Anne McCaffery's Killashandra series." ~ Marie Hall, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author
"I was immediately drawn into the story. Ms Kalquist possesses the rare gift of painting vivid scenes and emotions while using very few words. Her characters are alive and real and the reader sees and feels every nuance of emotion. I rarely write reviews, but this story is so well-written and riveting it deserves it." ~Amazon Review of Defect: Part 1
