Release Day Blitz: Gambit By C.L. Denault

Today I am celebrating the release of the YA dystopian “Gambit” By C. L. Denault. Be sure to watch the cool trailer.

Check out the trailer here.

Here’s the synopsis:

Gambit Cover

In Earth’s battle-ridden future, humans have evolved. Those with extraordinary skills rise to power and fame. Those without live in poverty.
Sixteen-year-old Willow Kent believed she was normal. But when a genetically-advanced military officer shows up in her village and questions her identity, long-buried secrets begin to emerge. With remarkable skills and a shocking genetic code the Core and its enemies will do anything to obtain, Willow suddenly finds the freedom she craves slipping through her fingers. Greed, corruption, and genetic tampering threaten every aspect of her existence as she’s thrust, unwilling, into the sophisticated culture of the elite Core city. To ensure peace, she must leave the past behind, marry a man she’s never met, and submit to the authority of a relentless officer with a hidden agenda of his own.
Her life has become a dangerous game. How much will she sacrifice in order to win?

About the author:

C.L. Denault is a speculative fiction writer who loves dreaming up tales of adventure and intrigue. A former systems analyst, she gave up her nerdy code-writing skills to care for her family (including a son with special needs), and currently lives among the vast stretches of cornfields in Illinois.
Writing stories and posting on The INFJ Café are her biggest passions, along with drinking coffee and watching sci-fi. When she’s not hanging out with her husband and kids, she can usually be found at a library or tucked away in the shadowy corner of a hip coffeehouse. She’s also been glimpsed sneaking into her garage, late at night, to work on her time machine.
Her debut novel, Gambit, is the first in a Young Adult dystopian series.

  1. This sounds like it could be interesting, and the cover is quite striking- kind of dark and deathly but clearly showing the fragility of the race/future/protagonist. Fierce yet fragile? Interesting. Not sure whether I’ll read this, at least not without reading a couple of reviews- I’m kind of off Dystopian at the moment, unfortunately, and am holding out for a book that gets me back onto it. Maybe I’ll read some great reviews and this will be that book!
    Hope it’s a good read for you, Rochelle.xx

    1. I love the sound of it and the cover. And I know what you mean. This is exactly what reviews are for, when you don’t know whether you want to read a book or not.

  2. Have added it to Goodreads just based on that synopsis alone, I love the premise, it reminds me a little of a darker version of Red Queen actually. I’d love to see a few reviews for it first before giving it a go myself (bit time poor these days). Will you be reviewing it? Thanks so much for sharing Rochelle and putting this one on my radar ❤

    1. I love the sound of this one too. I haven’t got a review copy because I didn’t have time for the blog tour so at this stage I won’t be reviewing it.
