The year is 3103, and the Earth is dying. One of the last remaining pockets of survivors are preparing for the inevitable future -- they either find a way off the planet or be left behind to die.
Sanaa Griffin is ripped from the job she always loved and reassigned to work for the mysterious Mark Sakai. Her task: spy on the corrupt leaders of the city who are playing politics and pulling strings in the hopes of earning a ticket on the next ship leaving a planet now in its final death throes. War looms on the horizon, and Sanaa must help Sakai determine the key players and their weak spots before it's too late.
Mark Sakai has many plans for Sanaa that will take her into a web of lies and danger. With the help of Jiro, a man who teaches her self defense while stealing her heart, Sanaa realizes Mark Sakai is holding back important truths about her life, her job, and her family. Learning the truth may put all of humanity in jeopardy as the great exodus from Earth begins.

Here's what readers on Goodreads are saying about REMOVED, the first book in the Nogiku Series:
"If you are afraid of Science Fiction, this is the book for you!"
"I couldn't put it down, but more importantly, it made me think."
"This book/series changed my life."
"I'm not usually one for Sci-Fi, but this was great. Just enough to be interesting, but not so much to be 'way' out there."
"This book is definitely worth the read, I could hardly put it down in the 2 days it took me to read it and over a week later, I'm still thinking about all the characters."
"It is full of surprises. The book unfolds slowly at first, but becomes more gripping as suspenseful as it goes."
REMOVED "explodes in a final action scene worthy of the cinema."
And much more! This New Adult Science Fiction Romance will make you fall in love with Japan and all of its cultures and traditions, from kimonos, sake, and swords to romance, sex, and secrets.
