The First Book in the defenders Guild Series: Eyes of Autonomy

The Eyes of Autonomy is a dystopian novella set fifty years into the future. After years of turmoil, America has become a socialist police state. Those who fought against the totalitarian regime in this civil conflict were banished and sent to resettle in Texas, which became a sovereign country. Upon the terms of surrender, these families were required to give up their children to the state. These children became the subjects of a science experiment that genetically modified them to be used as weapons for the state. However, the state soon discovered that genetically modified beings posed a risk to society and were ordered to live in separate confinements, which the state called “the shielding,” until they needed them for military assignments.

Piper O'pray has grown up in the shielding. But when she is exposed to both sides of the conflict, she must decide which is more important, Freedom or equality.

About Josephine Rubinsky

Hi, I’m Josephine Rubinsky! I’m a big nerd about Marvel comics and basically anything dystopian. I love anything strawberry-flavored, and Jesus is my best friend of all time!

When I’m not writing, you can find me sewing, gardening, or daydreaming about writing my next book. I was an MMA boxer in high school, and this helped me learn how to write fight scenes. I would love to meet you, so let's connect!
