How did the world of the Hunger Games come to be so separated and hostile? Often missing in dystopian fiction is a fleshed-out background of the people or world the story takes place in. Author Matthew Valles finds this often hinders his enjoyment of a novel, so he wrote his own.

“Warrior Seven” is the first installment in a trilogy that tells the tale of a dystopian society riddled with religious restrictions and a disturbing downfall from an over reliance on technology. The book follows the story of how the city came to be in its current state, the progression of the beliefs that now rule the people and the battles that threaten their survival.

“I am an avid reader and student of philosophy, theology and history,” Valles said. “I wanted to incorporate my research into an elaborate, but believable, sci-fi world that has been shattered.”

Valles incorporates his interests in the history of his hometown and other societies in order to create not only an entertaining story, but one that is grounded in a though-provoking state of realism.

Daven, the protagonist of “Warrior Seven,” plays an important role in the most vital religious ceremony of his people, but he does not agree with, or understand, their beliefs. When his city is attacked he must accept his destiny or find another way to save them all.
