The Kingdom

by Jess Rothenberg
Release date: May 28, 2019
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction, young adult

A half-android, half-human girl is accused of murder in this tautly-paced YA thriller told through fragmented flashbacks and court testimony, set in a futuristic fantasy theme park.

Welcome to the Kingdom, a dazzling fantasy theme park where “happily ever after” is not just a promise, but a rule. Home to genetically engineered F.E.S. (formerly extinct species) that roam the park, the park employs cutting-edge technology to make dreams come alive.

Ana is one of seven beautiful “Fantasists” — half-human, half-android princesses whose only purpose is to entertain Kingdom visitors. Counter to her programming, she begins to experience emotions and feelings... even allowing herself to fall in love for the first time.

But the fairytale ends when Ana is accused of murder. Told through court testimony, interrogations, and lush flashbacks, The Kingdom blends the futuristic appeal of Westworld with the twists and turns of a true-crime thriller.
