From New York Times best-selling author Calinda B, comes a dystopian tale of ruthless struggle and triumph.
For two long terrifying years, Sakhi Borren, and her beloved brother Reve, are headed to live at The Complex. An enclosed metal and concrete manufactured world on the barren planet Lorn, the Complex is some government's version of a good idea. Its sole purpose is to "heal the rifts between warring races" - a joke if ever Sakhi heard one. If she and her brother can survive to the end, they'll leave, far richer. In the meantime, all they can look forward to is co-existing with criminals and the scumbags known as Metas. She's scared of Metas. Her brother loathes them.
Strict rules and "guidelines" govern their every waking hour. Harsh punishment awaits all who violate the rules. It's a bleak, bleary, mind-numbing existence.
A telepathic dreamer, Sakhi does her best to get along and not make waves, working alongside her charming yet terrifying boss, Thrasyllus Blüthe, a decorated war hero. She dreads each night, where she'll wade through the hopes and fears of others, caught in their dream-state. It seems she can only escape one world to be entrenched in another. But soon its evident someone is stalking her in her dreams. It could be any number of Metas she works with. It could be her boss. But she suspects it's someone far more deadly - her worst nightmare and her greatest enemy - the Meta assigned as her parole officer. He wants her eradicated - only after he seduces her.
Surviving until it's over is no longer her only option. She needs to deal with what's right in front of her face - her present. With no one to turn to, she leans on her brother for strength and comfort. But he might have a few secret plans of his own that leave her with no recourse but to rely on her own faltering strength.

Wow...Really enjoyed this book
Wow! Really enjoyed this book. This is the first book I have read of this series. Where can I find more of this series/ stories? If you like paranormal/Sci-Fi stories this is a really good one and worth your time and credit.
Very entertaining, engaging and enjoyable. The story pulled me in immediately and never let go. This is one of those books I couldn't wait to get back to. It's an interesting, creative and original world that has paranormal creatures of all kinds including vampires, fae and werewolves just to name a few. The characters both good and bad are interesting, unique and unusual. There are some definite twists to many of these characters. There's enough action, suspense, romance and mystery to keep the story constantly moving, exciting and intense at times.
After doing a bit of research I found that The Complex is a collection of stories that are written by different authors and can be listened to in any order. Hopefully Audible will have more of these books available soon.
This is the first book by Calinda B. that I have listened to but it definitely won't be my last.
Lynn Norris did a great job with the narration. Nice voice, easy to listen to for long periods of time. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. Really good character voices. Great tone and delivery. She was able to bring the characters and story to life. I'm looking forward to listening to more stories she narrates in the future.
This book was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I voluntarily left this review.
