I NEVER ASKED TO BE THE SOLE BEARER OF THE ENTIRE KNOWLEDGE OF YOUR CIVILIZATION.

Yet, here I am, barely sixteen-years-old, and it has fallen upon my shoulders to save what remains of humanity from a second Dark Ages.
Your civilization is gone now, lost six hundred years ago in cataclysmic wars brought on by climate change. Your virtual information vanished along with electricity. Only your ancient printed books remain, and they have been scanned into a memory device hanging around my neck, to which only I have access.
For Knowledge is power, and the dreaded Wraith Lord knows this. He would keep the Knowledge for himself. He would hunt me down and force me to give it up, submitting humanity to infinite darkness and servitude.
Knowledge must belong to all, or to none. I must find a way to spread Knowledge back to the world, or die trying.
International bestselling, award-winning author Rae Knightly presents a thrilling young-adult dystopian novel, The Knowledge Seeker , which takes a thought-provoking look at what would remain of our civilization six-hundred-years from now, were we to disappear today. This coming-of-age story will captivate fans of The Hunger Games and The Maze Runner , and is ideal for readers aged 12-to-16.
“In our current age of almost anti-science, denial, and misinformation, this is an extremely important book for young readers to learn and appreciate knowledge in all its forms.” – READER’S FAVORITE
“A cleverly plotted, futuristic novel with a strong ‘climate change’ message.” – WISHING SHELF BOOK AWARDS FINALIST
“An exciting, action-packed dystopian adventure filled with much discovery.” – Giselle Schneider, author of Stars Hollow Paranormal Mysteries
“This is truly a 5 star book. It reminds me of “A Canticle for Leibowitz” but more contemporary and extremely well written.” – Goodreads reviewer
“The main character is intelligent and a very positive role model. I don’t usually like ‘dystopian’ stories but this has some great ideas and warnings about our future. I highly recommend this book.” – BookBub reviewer
