Across the Wire by Stella Telleria
Publication date: November 4th 2013
Genres: Adult, Science Fiction

When Mia Mitchell, a hardcore but lonely former Marine, steps into an alley to pull some thugs off an unlucky foreigner, she walks into a fight she expects. What she doesn’t see coming is the foreigner making her a job offer any sane person would refuse. So, she takes it. She thinks she’s headed for some third-world country; instead she’s mysteriously transported to an Earth-like parallel world. That’s a mad left-hook.
Mia discovers a matriarchal dystopia where freedom doesn’t exist and fighting for it means execution. Lethal force bends all to the law; women fear for their families and un-wed men suffer slavery. Mia’s job is to train an underground syndicate of male freedom-fighters for a violent revolution. However, the guys don’t want a pair of X chromosomes showing them the way.

Eben, an escaped slave, is encouraged by Mia to become a leader among the men. But when he turns his quiet determination on her, it spells F.U.B.A.R. for cynical Mia. Their unexpected connection threatens more than her exit strategy; it threatens the power struggle festering with in the syndicate.

Haunted by nightmares and post-traumatic stress, unsure who to trust or how to get home, Mia struggles to stay alive as she realizes all is not what it seems.

Nothing could prepare me for what I read in this book... this is totally out of my comfort zone yet it's an amazing book to be read.

Stella has create a unique world, this is truly UNIQUE and ORIGINAL, you won't see -or at least I don't- another book with this kind of storyline.

There's a parallel world where Women dominated and Men are slaves, totally opposite to our world, can you imagine us being the one in charge? the world being rule by women? the slang women rule the world is true in this different yet amazing book, women are tall, and muscular and taught to fight and men are slim, pretty femenisn, boyish are slave, concubines who are often castrated to keep the boyish look. and I can only applaude the amazing mind of Stella.

So in this parallel world we met Eben who has escape his destiny of being a slave and went to the "right world" -our world- and find Mia a former marine to teach him and other men how to fight against the matriarchal dystopia where they lives.

i really enjoyed this book and highly recommended to everyone who loves a dystopia that is well written, where the characters are well develope and the world is amazingly done and built.

All my life I’ve dreamed of stories or have had my nose buried in one. I live in Edmonton, Canada with my husband and my weird sense of humor. Across the Wire is my first novel.

I love old war movies, dystopian fiction, and any story with action, a good plot, and characters I'd get into a fight at the pub for. Not that I'm a brawler or anything. Unless you think that out-of-print book or vintage piece at the thrift shop is going home with you instead of me. Then, my friend, the gloves are off. 

Some say if you have your nose buried in a book, you're missing out on life. I say my nose is buried in a book because one life is not enough.
