Read Wilders (Project Earth, #1) Online Free - Coryn Williams is left behind in the megacity of Seacouver after her parents commit suicide and her sister, Lou, flees the city to work for a non-governmental organization (NGO) in the wild lands. For company, Coryn has her companion robot, Paula, who helps her get through school, keeps her safe in the city, and acts a coach for her in many things -- including running marathons. But Coryn misses her sister. When she graduates from high school, she is required to choose a profession. She refuses, instead choosing to “go feral” and leave the safety of her city to find Lou. She abandons most of her technology, which will not work in the wilds anyway, but brings along her robot companion, Paula.
Wilders explores the relationship between the two sisters, between the megacites and the wild lands, and between a city girl and her robot protector. Coryn must grow up during a science fictional adventure full of drone flights and fights, frightening ecobots, and dangerous weather.

Brenda Cooper is taking a new direction in her new book Wilders, switching from space operas to look at a world in a future where human expansion and environmental change has shaped the face of the planet in dramatic ways.

Trigger warning: suicide
Reading Wilders was a struggle from the get go. It took me three weeks to finish. I haven’t had this much difficulty forcing myself to finish something since my senior English class read Faulkner. I may take Faulkner over Wilders.
The future is divided between the cities an...

[This was also published at my website, the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography.]
To be fair, the premise behind Brenda Cooper's new series-starting science-fiction novel Wilders is legitimately pretty great; namely, in a post-ecological-crisis future, the power of nations has fallen apa...

I found the writing to be very dry, slow and uninteresting. The characters were flat, each character was interchangeable, one might as well have just been another. The writing was awkward and very difficult to read. I had to struggle to force myself to read this. 1 star.
I got this as an uncorrect...

An interesting near-ish future set in the Northwest after a semi-collapse. Not one of the author's better books, and yet still good. There was something odd about the pacing in which the latter half of the book dragged. But the ideas were good enough to push on through, and some of the characters...

I make it a point to always finish a book, I think there's only ever been one that I just couldn't muster the verve to complete. Usually this works out for me, either in that it all turns around and I end up being surprised, or that it's so terrible I hop on here and review it to vent my rage.

Nature and progress collide, both subtly and violently. That is the short description of the events of Wilders. In a future where most people live in vast technologically advanced cities, the wilds outside the city are struggling to survive.
Coryn Williams has grown up in the city and, although sh...

Disclosure: I know the author personally, have done copyediting and other work for her (not on this book, however), and got a copy of the book from her before it was published.
What will happen to us as climate change accelerates? One possible option is the creation of megacities that house 95% or...

Wilders by Brenda Cooper is a highly recommended coming-of-age dystopian science fiction novel.
In the near future cities have expanded to megacities that take care of most of the populations every need. The land outside the cities is set aside for wilding, or returning it to a natural state, sans...
