Stasis by samberk

For the greater good of serenity 

Peyton Williamson has always felt like he hasn’t belonged. In the idyllic City, everyone seems to know exactly what they’re doing and exactly who they like—except for him, of course. Being shipped to the Academy, the school all adolescents must attend to become full members of society, barely helps at all. If anything, the realization that the world he’s spent his whole life in may be a fabrication for something more sinister only exacerbates his insecurities. Others around him find themselves disillusioned with the City as well, doubting who they can trust and what they can do to keep themselves safe. When they’re all ripped out of their homes and thrown into a territory ungoverned by the City’s authority, they must learn their way through the wild lands, meeting the people who struggle to live on a day-to-day basis within it along the way. Over a series of events, they slowly unearth secrets about their society—and themselves—that may have best remained hidden.

Note: Stasis contains some graphic violence.

Dec 19, 2018: Often times, I find myself hard-pressed to get into dystopian stories, especially if they don’t carry with them some unique premise or way of showing things. So it’s always a pleasure to find something that breaks my preconceptions, even in the simplest way possible.

The following story, simply named Stasis, revolves around a dystopian future of sorts, where humanity has been brought to brink and their population has diminished because of it. To survive this bleak future, people lead incredibly structured [more . . .]

Feb 12, 2019: Stasis. It’s a catchy title for a catchy novel. I am reading it while it is being written, almost, as the novel is a story in progress. I’ve finally caught up with the author now, and I can’t wait to read more. I’ve read the first 33 chapters (that are available at the time of writing this), which means I’m almost halfway in Part Two.

Stasis takes place in a dystopian future, and the main character is Peyton. I like Peyton, [more . . .]
