Description

Everyone accepted that people were different physically. But inside? Inside, they were different too. You just had to know how to tell, what to look for. Evil has been eradicated. The City has been established. And citizens may only enter after having the 'evil' part of their brain removed. They are labelled on the System according to how 'good' they are. If they show signs of the evil emerging, they are labelled a K ...But no one knows quite what that means. Only that they disappear, never to be seen again ...show more

Review quote

Chillingly well-imagined. Daily Mail 'Chillingly well-imagined.' Daily Mail 'Malley creates a harrowing dystopian world that keeps you turning the pages.' We Love This Book Malley creates a harrowing dystopian world that keeps you turning the pages. We Love This Book I love Gemma Malley ... Somehow, she manages to produce books that are at once intellectual, challenging, sophisticated, exciting, romantic and accessible. Thebookbag.co.uk 'I love Gemma Malley. She's pure class (as my younger son would say). Somehow, she manages to produce books that are at once intellectual, challenging, sophisticated, exciting, romantic and accessible. I'm not sure quite how she manages it but I know I start reading her books the moment I receive them and I return to them over and over again ... I'm looking forward to the second book in this trilogy more than I can say.' Thebookbag.co.uk At times I felt I couldn't put this down, there were times where the action was riveting and others I just wanted to read on to find out the truth about the system ... Malley has done an excellent job and it is well worth a read. Passionfornovels.co.uk 'A great deal of thought and planning has clearly gone into the world building. I believed it, could see it happening and found it disturbing and fascinating at the same time ... The denouement was particularly satisfying. The System is organised on a computer and I loved the part that this took in the plot and its ending. Although this is the first in the series I was happy with the conclusion of book one, it satisfied my need for revenge although there are plenty of untied ends and interesting threads for the rest of the series.'

Myfavouritebooks.blogspot.co.uk Praise for Gemma Malley's previous books : The Declaration is a chilling, dystopian view of how life may be in the not too far off future, reminiscent of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale and PD James's The Children of Men, but written for a young teenage audience ... ground-breaking, mesmerizing and compelling novel. www.lovereading.co.uk Stunning, thought-provoking and a book that genuinely stays with you.
