Description

"When freedom is a luxury, resistance is inevitable."




The Government rule the Hub with an iron fist, their strict laws enforced by Derivates, humans with psionic abilities. When one of these Derivates flees her post, they send KC-847, a powerful telekinetic, to bring her back. But KC-847 soon learns he and his team are unprepared for what they find, and their mission goes awry.



Flit, a plucky teleporter, works for the Underground resistance, the last refuge for Derivates wishing to live free of the Government's control. On a routine security patrol, Flit comes across KC-847 and breaks all the rules to bring him back to the Underground.



However, KC-847's arrival brings with it a string of deadly events that threaten the safety of the Underground. Convinced the incidents are more than unfortunate coincidences, Flit refuses to fall back on a false sense of security and drags KC-847 on an investigation that will change the trajectory of Derivate-kind forever.

Review quote

"I was intrigued by the premise of The Underground and Liv Evans more than lived up to expectation. As soon as I began reading, I was thoroughly immersed in the world, characters and their cause. The complexity of the setting was perfectly presented, creating a clear picture in my mind without bogging down the pace with heavy description. While there is an extensive cast of characters, they are individuals with distinctive personalities, abilities and motivation. I found myself as interested in some of the sides as I was in our main couple. Well, maybe not. There's simply no competing with Flit and KC-847."

- Charisse Moritz, author of 'Shatter' and 'Shakespeare Burning'




"Liv managed to build a futuristic authoritarian world with delightful strokes of defiance and human tenacity."

- Daniel Newwyn, author of 'The Color of Your Voice' and 'The Thirst'




"The Underground is a well-written and engaging account of a society living apart. Part X-men (think prejudice against mutants), part Hunger Games (think strong female lead with realistic family, friendships and romantic relationships), the story caught my attention at once and held it throughout. Dystopias can be depressing -- and I expect the series to get darker -- but this was an uplifting and entertaining read. Highly recommended."

- Frances Evelyn, author of ''The Time Before' and 'The Changeling Tree'
