"The characters and story line felt so real, it was hard not to get hooked."
" ...Pulse-pounding action ... I was rooting for the characters so hard."

A brutal conspiracy threatens humanity's survival.

Three hundred years ago, the Earth died, and the last humans fled. Beaten. Broken in more ways than one. But there was something they couldn't leave behind: The Legacy Code--mangled genes that force them to abort half their unborn children.

When Era and Dritan Corinth get placements on the safest ship in the fleet and win a chance to have a child, they feel lucky. Until the day Era's supposed to find out if her baby has the Defect, and the ship suffers a hull breach.
An investigation uncovers new threats. Dangerous secrets. Lies. Treason. Era begins to question everything she's been taught about the fleet, their search for a new Earth, and the Defect. But the answers she seeks were never meant to be found...

Legacy Code is a suspenseful, dark post-apocalyptic read that has earned five star reviews from fans of books like Hunger Games, Divergent, and Red Rising, and has been compared favorably to Wool, 1984, and the new Battlestar Galactica.

"Addictive sci-fi series. I haven't been this hooked on an author since Anne McCaffery's Killashandra series." ~ Marie Hall, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

What Readers are Saying:
"Upon receiving my copy of The Legacy Code, I started reading and just could not stop, until it was over."

"It pulled me in faster than most books I have read and kept me on the edge of my seat through the end. I read it all in just a few hours." 

"...An uncertain future has the colonists on edge, leading to acts of terrorism and assassination attempts on government officials... There are several intriguing elements at play, most significantly, the mystery of the Legacy Code and whether it holds the key to humanity's survival...I'm looking forward to continuing the series to see where it goes from here."

"A couple of chapters in and I was already hooked! I ended up staying up til midnight (as a mother of a toddler this is a rare occasion) in order to finish it."

"I just finished this book...at 6:00 AM. This society crafted by Autumn Kalquist is fascinating. I can't even imagine how much time she spent carefully plotting every detail. Their existence feels so real and so frighteningly possible."

"Autumn Kalquist is a talented author. LEGACY CODE is easy to read, her plot is engaging, and her characters are real. Her world building is second to none, and I felt completely sucked into her story."

"It kind of had an initial feel of Battlestar Galactica -- a civilization that has to abandon their planet and go in search of a new one. ...It had mystery, a bit of a thriller like aspect, humor, and a taste of romance. I'm hooked enough for another taste, now I just have to wait!" 

"I both love and hate this book...but in a good way! Instantly I fell in love with the characters and storyline that Kalquist spun together...This story is based in the future (almost a space opera / dystopian) where the populations of earth escaped to space to find a better world. ...we arrive in a distant future where civilization exists on space ships and they have to take decades before making jumps across space -similar in a way to what I imagine Stargate"

" ...riveting. Just a couple pages and I was hooked. I made me want to spend every free minute reading it until I finished the whole book. I can hardly wait to read the next book in the series. Action packed and fast moving the whole way through. A must read for Sci-Fi fans."
