Asylum is a Christian sci fi novel from a new author- Ashley Hodges Bazer. Sci-Fi is one of my favorite genres to read since almost anything goes and it’s fun to disappear into a futuristic or other-worldly place.

Trista is a Ghost (rebel) and captured by the Legacy (the government) and used as a guinea pig for the Legacy’s new rehabilitation program. The Legacy released news that Trista has been executed and their doctors from the Experimental Medical Agency implant memory and pain controllers into her brain to make her think that she is loyal to the Legacy. She believes her name to be Krissa and has little memory of her parents and no conscious recollection of her husband. She has terrible headaches whenever Ghosts or her husband, Chase, is mentioned. The doctors orchestrated this on purpose to keep her on a short leash.

Chase, while trying to track down Trista, has also been captured by the Legacy and sent to a prison ship where he will be rehabilitated (aka tortured) daily. When the prisoners riot and take over the star ship, they find themselves with an unplanned prisoner – a systems analyst who was working on the ship’s computer systems at the time of the discourse. This systems analyst is none other than Krissa, whom Chase recognizes immediately.

This was a very fun book to read and I’m definitely looking forward to reading more in this series of books!
