Such an interesting concept! After reading the blurb, I just had to read more!

The Stolen Generation (Release Date: March 3, 2018)

Between 1972 and 1993 the Global Sector Council forced single mothers to have abortions.When those babies were aborted, their souls were stolen and attached to lab made children. Those children, together with a group known as the Rebellion are now fighting back. Freya ‘Freddie’ Faith Raner takes us on a whirlwind adventure as she and her soul sister search for their soul mother, look to over throw the global government, and make friends, and enemies, along the way.

A dystopian novel set in a parallel universe which split from our own timeline in the aftermath of the Second World War. Utopia isn’t all that it seems, in a world where religion has been abolished, LGBT people have rights the world over, and food, shelter, and education are taken as given.

My Thoughts…

If you’re a fan of Dystopian like I am, you’re probably getting tired of reading the same books over and over. The genre is getting saturated and it’s difficult to find a great book that stands out from the rest.

That’s why I had to read this one. Imagine souls being harvested from aborted fetuses and then being transplanted into lab-grown babies. Nevermind the profound spiritual consequences, think of the ethical lines not just being crossed, but blown away! Now you know how the “Rebellion” feels.

In addition to that, we have a whole generation of people who have been living a lie their entire lives, wondering why they didn’t fit in with their biological families, when they all shared the same DNA.

This book has everything! Great writing, strong diverse characters (especially Freddie), and it will make you think. I also love that it was written in a parallel universe as it added a whole new dimension to an already fantastic theme.

I really enjoyed it and if you’re a fan of smart, unique dystopian sci-fi, you should really give this one a read!

About the Author 

N.A. Le Brun is an author living in a small West Yorkshire town and looking to move to London in the New Year. Growing up they lived on the small island of Jersey and that is why the first book in the Lunegosse Tales begins there. Life on an island can be very insular, particularly when the island is only 45 square miles in size. But even a small drop in the English Channel can hide many secrets.

Jersey has a history lined with myths of mysterious creatures, witches, and devil worship. What it didn’t have up until now is a tale of mysterious humanoid aliens fighting to save their race. N. A. has always loved both Science Fiction and Fantasy and also writes short LGBT stories and screenplays/theatre scripts.

Since childhood, N.A. has wanted nothing more than to see their name in print, and this dream is slowly becoming a reality.

N.A. dislikes gender labelling and prefers to use neutral pronouns, such as they and their, feeling more comfortable in their skin without the question of gender being raised.  This in part stems from their belief that women and men should be treated equally, in part from the fact that identify as gender non-binary (neither male nor female). It’s also why their protagonists are often female, giving girls the chance to find role models in a male dominated world.
