Centuries after the near-extinction of humans, Guardians like 17-year-old Aaliss protect Eden by eliminating all who stray too close. When her younger brother discovers a cure to the plague, they get branded as traitors and flee to the land of the Soulless—a medieval world of magic, and elders only slightly older than Aaliss. Will they survive?

This YA Dystopian Sci-Fi adventure is ideal for readers 13 and up.
What happens when everything you believed turns out to be a lie?
Every child of Eden fears the Red Death. All those afflicted with the plague die young, their souls stripped away as punishment for ancient sins long forgotten. For centuries, Guardians have protected Eden from the Red Death by killing outsiders who stray too close.

Seventeen-year-old Aaliss is a highly-trained Guardian, but when her rather odd thirteen-year-old brother, Wilky, discovers a cure to the plague, her world turns upside down. Branded as traitors by the corrupt High Priest, Aaliss and Wilky are forced to seek refuge in the last place Aaliss thought she’d ever go—beyond the boundaries of Eden and into the land of the Soulless. Here they must navigate a medieval world filled with witches, magic, and warrior kingdoms run by Elders only a few years older than her.

Aaliss yearns to return home, but when her heart tugs her deeper into the world of the Soulless, she questions everything she once believed. Has her soul been taken? Will she and Wilky fall victim to the Red Death, or might they die sooner in the center of a battle that threatens to tear apart the Soulless world? Or… might Aaliss finally find, against all odds, what her heart has yearned for all along?

"A complex dystopian story recommended for older teens, its ultimate impact and winding, engrossing story will be welcomed and relished by not only this audience but new adult readers who appreciate the complex worlds and feisty protagonists of The Hunger Games and similar dystopian novels. In the end, it's more than just a story of teens surviving in their world; but a thought-provoking saga about belief systems and religion, courage, adaptability, greed and goals of ruling humanity, and a seemingly unstoppable juggernaut of change that rolls over everyone in its path. Red Death is ultimately about revolution, the kernel of which begins here, in a gripping story of two talented and determined siblings who reach out to connect with and embrace their world."
"Where dystopian novels are a dime a dozen, Altabef creates an epic tale that stands out. While the premise follows the pattern of the dystopian genre, the author twists the tropes into something fresh and imaginative. A perfect example revolves around the center of the dystopian genre: the corrupt government versus the lone protagonist. While Eden's government is co-controlled by a corrupt High Priest and President, not all who are a part of the religious sect are conniving or evil. Additionally, in the outside world, the government of the tribes are also a mix of corrupt and good individuals. In other words, the perspective of the world is not simplistic. Altabef does a fantastic job of making concepts thought-provoking and delightful to read. Red Death will appeal to a wide audience since it has something for everyone. It's action-packed, with plenty of chases and fights for those who enjoy adventures and drama. There are enough twists to surprise those who are intrigued by political intrigue, suspense, and cliffhangers. Amid kingdoms to unite, princes to save, and lives on the line, there is also a playful romance sprinkled throughout for those who desire some lightheartedness."
"Jeff Altabef creates a fantasy adventure that weaves together powerful themes like death and faith, love and devotion, and, of course, betrayal. 5 STARS."
– Readers' Favorite Book Reviews
""Red Death" by Jeff Altabef contains dynamic writing and an epic plot-line that will keep you on the edge of your seat....The author has created not just a single city or even a single state; he has created an entire world that is like a MAD MAX version of a mixture of Tolkien's Middle Earth and Medieval England. 5 STARS."
