Realistic story about how a small American town would try to survive an EMP strike

One Second After is a scary book because you have to ask yourself if it could really happen. Unlike many dystopian books that feel disconnected from our real world this book is shockingly realistic. The story begins with a history professor/retired military officer explaining to his family that the power should come back on soon after an outage occurs. However, he also wrote a very detailed paper on Electro Magnetic Pulses (EMP) and he fears that is what really happened. The small town soon finds itself under...

Another great dystopian novel like The Maze Runner or Divergent

Arena 1 is the first book in a new series by Morgan Rice. Morgan Rice is best known for her series The Vampire Journals and I really enjoyed her fantasy series The Sorcerer's Ring. I got sucked into that series because the first book in the series, A Quest for Heroes, was free as a ebook. This new book, Arena 1, is also a free ebook and a great start to a new dystopian series. The story is a children's book but I think any dystopian reader will find something to like here...

Fast paced story with plenty of action

I have listened to Amped as an audio book twice now and think it is an excellent example of dystopian science fiction. The main character, Owen, is a young man with unique cybernetic implants that make him an "amp". "Amps" have no rights and are treated more like animals than people. The average implants transforms children with learning difficulties into super intelligent or athletic kids that normal kids just can't compete with.   And then there is Owen who thought his physician father gave him an average implant that just keeps him from having epileptic seizures but...

Dystopian story of miners on Mars in the middle of a revolution

I finished reading this dystopian book set on Mars over a month ago and am just getting around to the review. The book is by Kyle Perkins who is a young author that I teamed up with on a free book promotion a few months ago.    This book is about a man and a woman that both work as miners on Mars. Their world is headed towards a revolution as there are three different factions that have very different views of how life on Mars should be.   The book continues to build as...
