Karas has earned everything she has the hard way, even the strike on her neck. Life in the dry lands of Texas isn’t fun for girls like Karas. With no future and no choices, it’s all about survival. Her friends, Cassie and Connor, don’t have it much better, but together they’ve managed to carve out a life. Sort of. Keeping one eye looking over her shoulder and one eye on the next meal, Karas lives in constant fear of the authorities, because in Texas there are no prisons, only an accounting system that is as cruel as it is efficient. For each crime, a tattoo is marked on the offender's neck - a strike. Five strikes earns the label of habitual criminal and a quick death sentence.Already sporting a strike at the age of sixteen doesn’t bode well if Karas is looking for a long life. It should be easy: just avoid breaking the law. Of course, it isn’t. The disadvantaged like Karas can expect more strikes than the wealthy elite. When the guy Karas has crushed on since grade school risks his own strike-free neck to help her, everything goes wrong. Her entire group of friends is put into life and death jeopardy and there’s only one way to survive.They have to go Striker. They have to escape Texas. With the authorities on their tail and death the punishment if caught, it’s a race against the elements and the might of Texas. If they survive, the prize is freedom.
Strikers is book one of the exciting Strikers Trilogy! There are no cliffhangers and Strikers can be read as a stand-alone. Book two, Strikers: Eastlands, is coming in May 2016!

5.0 A triumph. I can't wait for the sequel!
I read Strikers while I was on vacation, and after I finished, I had a major book hangover for the rest of the trip. I couldn’t navigate myself out of the amazing dystopian world that Ann Christy created; a mix of old west and future bleakness, the Texas in the novel is a gritty, dusty, brutal polic...
