A thrilling debut of a harrowing post-apocalyptic world for fans of The Hunger Games
Weaving philosophy and science together into a riveting, dystopian story of love and adventure, The Office of Mercy illuminates an all-too-real future imagined by an phenomenal new voice in fiction.
Twenty-four year old Natasha Wiley lives in America-Five — a high-tech, underground, utopian settlement where hunger and money do not exist, everyone has a job, and all basic needs are met. But when her mentor and colleague, Jeffrey, selects her to join a special team to venture Outside for the first time, Natasha’s allegiances to home, society, and above all to Jeffrey, are tested. She is forced to make a choice that may put the people she loves most in grave danger and change the world as she knows it.
The Office of Mercy is speculative fiction at its best with a deeply-imagined, lush world, high-stakes adventure, and romance that will thrill fans of Suzanne Collins, Margaret Atwood, Justin Cronin, and Kazuo Ishiguro.
“Gripping, well-plotted, and boasting a fascinating setting, this utterly engrossing tale is thoughtful and surprising.” — Deborah Harkness, author of A Discovery Witches and Shadow of Night
