Imagine a world where light is a privilege
In a future Australia, where light is only for the powerful and the poor struggle in darkness, Sam grew up praying for a way out. Living as the only sighted boy in a town of blind workers was tough. Discovering it didn’t have to be that way was tougher.
Sam is just one of five desperate people, each from vastly different societies in a deeply divided land, who must survive prejudice, calamity, and each other, to unlock the secrets of their world, and ultimately help a fabled AI defeat an ancient foe.
Letters from the Light is a debut dystopian sci-fi novel by Australian author Shel Calopa. Join her and celebrate diversity, explore the corrupting influence of power, and ask whether it’s truly possible to break free of your upbringing.

Cleverly marrying the feel of The Handmaid’s Tale and an espionage Saga, the plot strands pull ever tighter, heading, inexorably, towards a showdown. Intelligent, complex, entertaining and surprising, this book is one of this year’s most compelling reads.
– Caroline Noe, author of The Conellian Eye Series
It’s a well thought out clever, imaginative, detailed and meaty tale, filled with unique characters that each have their own voice. All this set against an Australian background with a dystopian theme. The melange of ethnicities and cultures blended with concerns that reflect, all too glaringly, our own real-world problems was brilliant.
–T.K. Toppin, author of The Lancaster Trilogy
A well-crafted and unique world populated by a broad cast of the good and the bad. This is a multilayered story with strong threads of culture, politics, societal inequities, religion, and revolution. Loved the Australian flavour.
–V.E. Patton, author of The Opal Dreaming Chronicles
