Phaet Theta has lived her whole life in a colony on the Moon. She’s barely spoken since her father died in an accident nine years ago. She cultivates the plants in Greenhouse 22, lets her best friend talk for her, and stays off the government’s radar.

Then her mother is arrested.

The only way to save her younger siblings from the degrading Shelter is by enlisting in the Militia, the faceless army that polices the Lunar bases and protects them from attacks by desperate Earth-dwellers. Training is brutal, but it’s where Phaet forms an uneasy but meaningful alliance with the preternaturally accomplished Wes, a fellow outsider.

Rank high, save her siblings, free her mom: that’s the plan—until Phaet’s logically ordered world begins to crumble.

Suspenseful, intelligent, and hauntingly prescient, Dove Arising stands on the shoulders of our greatest tales of the future to tell a story that is all too relevant today.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Newcomer Bao’s off-world setting and world-building details are intriguing.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Characters are well developed, especially strong-willed Phaet, and an even pace will keep teens turning pages. Fans of Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game, Veronica Roth’s Divergent, and Marie Lu’s Legend should flock to this well-written debut effort by nineteen-year-old Bao.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Until just recently, the number of formidable young adult authors who got published before they were out of their teens was extremely small: Christopher Paolini and Isamu Fukui. Well, it is time to make room for a third name in this elite list: Karen Bao.”


  • “Kim Mai Guest narrates the story of an introverted girl who becomes a leader in this thrilling adventure story set on the moon…Guests use of strength of emotion and tense pacing to good effect. Listeners who enjoy science fiction adventures that unravel slowly will enjoy this series starter.”
