More in dystopia

 Trust no one - not even family.

How much courage do you need to survive betrayal, war, and loss?



Adara and her friends infiltrate Agro headquarters ready to free the Meeks. With only a handful of allies by their side, Adara soon learns that these mysterious adversaries are more powerful and cruel than she ever imagined. Despite overwhelming odds, she has to summon up all of her strength and power to destroy the Agro army.

As filthy battles ensue and loved ones perish, Adara must sing The Song of Forgetfulness one last time if she is to save not only the Meeks, but all the folk of NotSoGreatBritAlbion, from a life of slavery and despair.

But there is a traitor trying to sabotage their mission. Someone who is in league with the enemy. Someone close to home. 

‘Exciting, fun, unique, and creative. The author is truly a gifted writer to be able to whip up something like this. Easily a must-read for dystopian adventure lovers out there.’

It’s a sickly wind that blows. Ash black and full of menace. Agros. Lots of them

Feet pounding, shaking the earth, drawing closer.

An unseen enemy equipped with tech we know nowt about.

All I have is my voice and the power of friendship.

I must act now before the Agro menace snuffs us out for good.

If you enjoy reading books that are different, have a strong storyline with offbeat characters, and quirky language, then you will love A Silence Heard. It is a great addition to the dystopian/Sci-fi/cli-fi tradition of authors such as, Suzanne Collins, Veronica Roth, Bella Forest, Patrick Ness, Ursula K. Le Guin and Margaret Atwood.


A timely and uncanny portrait of a world in the wake of fake news, diminished privacy, and a total shutdown of the Internet

BEFORE: In Bristol’s center lies the Croft, a digital no-man’s-land cut off from the surveillance, Big Data dependence, and corporate-sponsored, globally hegemonic aspirations that have overrun the rest of the world. Ten years in, it’s become a center of creative counterculture. But it’s fraying at the edges, radicalizing from inside. How will it fare when its chief architect, Rushdi Mannan, takes off to meet his boyfriend in New York City—now the apotheosis of the new techno-utopian global metropolis?

AFTER: An act of anonymous cyberterrorism has permanently switched off the Internet. Global trade, travel, and communication have collapsed. The luxuries that characterized modern life are scarce. In the Croft, Mary—who has visions of people presumed dead—is sought out by grieving families seeking connections to lost ones. But does Mary have a gift or is she just hustling to stay alive? Like Grids, who runs the Croft’s black market like personal turf. Or like Tyrone, who hoards music (culled from cassettes, the only medium to survive the crash) and tattered sneakers like treasure.

The world of Infinite Detail is a small step shy of our own: utterly dependent on technology, constantly brokering autonomy and privacy for comfort and convenience. With Infinite Detail, Tim Maughan makes the hitherto-unimaginable come true: the End of the Internet, the End of the World as We Know It.

The second chapter of a Dystopian saga built on the belief that man knows about and uses only a fraction of the brain’s real ability. A saga in which heart and mind collide against a backdrop of unrest, passions, plotting, and extreme actions. A story that will shock you!
After being torn from a life that she believed hers, Kendall finds herself immersed in a world completely different from what she believed. And just as she was about to discover the origin of the bond between her and Trevor, the leader of the Orphans, a succession of unpredictable events forced them apart.
Kendall is now in the hands of Axel, who more than anyone want to resurrect her lost memories so that he can get hold of the information he desperately craves. But how will he convince her to cooperate?
What effect will the Root implant have on her?
Will the days spent at the Mind’s headquarters change her view on the Orphans?
Or will she do everything in her power to find a way to return to the Mausoleum and to Trevor?
Can you really lose yourself in someone else’s eyes?
Well, that’s what just happened to me.
Sucked into an ocean in which warm and cold currents swirl into an incredible blue giving life to a unique color, I was incapable of resurfacing. Or maybe I simply didn’t want to.
It was as if my soul had migrated towards that magnetic gaze and had no intention of returning.
Who was that man? And why was he staring at me with such an intensity I wanted to cry?

Not far in the future, Francesca is an apprentice in the idyllic, agrarian community of Heron Fleet. She loves her impetuous partner Anya and the community acts as mother and father to her, as its founders intended. But outside Heron Fleet, the world is violent. Only a remnant of city populations, organised into violent despotic scavenger gangs, cling on by combing through rubble in search of food. They are the survivors of an ecological disaster. The causes have been forgotten, but the climate suffers with harsh, cold winters and short, hot summers. Between these two worlds, Tobias trades food gathered from agrarian communities for raw materials from the cities. But most of all he seeks books that might help him understand what happened to the climate; he believes that if humans are to have a long-term future, the agrarian communities must expand. Francesca rescues Tobias when his boat is wrecked by a storm and his arrival coincides with a crisis in Francesca and Anya’s relationship. This pushes Heron Fleet into a turmoil, which threatens the community’s cohesion and brings the ethical basis on which the community was originally formed into doubt. Heron Fleet asks many questions. To what extent is necessity an excuse for the suppression of basic human rights? How easy would it be for our comfortable society to become poor, nasty and brutish? Is there a natural urge to be literate? What is the proper duty of the individual to the community? The book, which has been inspired by a number of authors, including Margaret Atwood, John Christopher and Russell Hoban, will appeal to fans of speculative literature. Author Paul weaves gripping dystopian fiction with an underlying theme of global warming, posing questions about human nature and needs – both for today’s society and for the future.
