To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
On a business trip, Indigo Meyer falls for a young woman, a fading teen-star, and makes the mistake of letting her read his manuscripts. His nemesis is to find himself held captive by a secret organization, his and his family's lives threatened unless he continues to write in captivity. Charlotte Watson becomes the successful author of his stories, beginning with Humanity's Sunset over Osaka Bay, a dystopian science fiction fantasy.
The story within the story continues with the characters and the premise of Humanity's Sunset, as Charlotte becomes famous and forces Indigo to edit and prepare more of his unpublished manuscripts.
Will Indigo ever be able to escape from this oppressive captivity? Will he see his family again? Does the dystopian tale of Humanity's Sunset carry messages for a different world? Or will he continue to be Sentenced to Obscurity while someone else takes credit for his work?
Many hooks and twists in the plot make this well-written story a gripping read.
Indigo Meyer, a talented but unknown author, falls into a trap set by a pretty, much younger woman. Incarcerated and starved, his wife and children under constant threat, he's forced to edit novels he's written or work hard to produce more, while this woman, a former teen film star fallen from grace, takes the credit for his novels and receives world acclaim. Sunk deep into obscurity, Indigo's work is adored by the public. The problem is he will never know how the impact or his words, or the power they contain, together with scenarios that spring from his inventive mind will influence the world in the distant future. Lots of twists and turns, a profound and thought-provoking read.
A book within a book, walls within walls. A spectacular success in examining both the trials of being an author and the legacy of ones work Captivated, captured – his work stolen, his live stolen, and the tale that is his, defining a dystopian future. Sentenced to Obscurity is the work of an incredibly gifted writer. I look forward to other works in this series.
