When Shelli (S. R. Johannes) emailed me and said she wrote a novelette, I was like cool. I never expected Suffocate to leave me on the edge, begging for more. In what is 15,000 words which is roughly 50 pages, Johannes, created a world, killed off a major character, added suspense, mystery and love and completely shocked me.
Suffocate is the story of Eria and her scientist father, Duke. For centuries, the world has been unlivable, forcing people to live in a Biome. Eria has never known what real grass feels like or ever touched a real tree. She’s never felt the sun touch her face when it rises early in the morning. Eria lives in a bubble.
Ash, Duke’s assistant, knows everything there is to know about Duke and Eria – so when things take a turn for the worse, Eria knows she can only trust one person – Ash!
When Duke, creates a suit that allows people to walk outside the Biome, everyone is excited. A suit like this would likely to cause problems, especially for the man who controls the oxygen distribution . . . dun dun dun. When Eria and Ash figure out the oxygen is killing people, the puzzle starts falling together rather quickly.
The only thing left for Eria is to leave the Biome, but how can she without a suit?
