Editorial Reviews

Michael Fletcher - Author

Jarrett has nailed it

With Mortal Tether, Jarrett has nailed it – and has raised the bar for YA science fiction writers everywhere! Set in a small town following a world-wide, extinction-level event, this apocalyptic story grips readers from the very first pages and propels us through terrifying and heart-pounding adventures. We follow the heroic exploits of a young Boricua protagonist, Amaia, who is thrust into a nightmarish and vicious world of the undead against her will. She digs deep for her courage – and grows up overnight, proving her mettle while matching wits and bravery with her older contemporaries. It is a story of victory, and Jarrett deftly weaves tension-fraught themes reminiscent of Golding’s Lord of the Flies where tribalism runs riot, against a subtle backdrop of an evolving religious awareness by the main characters. Once “bitten,” you won’t be able to put this book down!
