Perfect for fans of The Hunger Games, The Maze Runner, or The Divergent Series!

The Sweepers are coming. They hunt the young.
Sixteen-year-old Derry Connolly lives in perpetual fear of capture. The year is 2069. A scorched post-apocalyptic earth overrun by merciless gangs offers little haven. From the skies, mysterious hoverships manned by military clones prey on the young. When Derry's older brother goes missing, she must strike a deal with a group of cutthroat rogues and launch a daring raid to save him.
But she soon finds out the world she knows is a lie. Keeping her brother alive could mean trusting the enemy and opening her heart to someone scarcely human.

Immurement is the first book in The Undergrounders Series, a sci-fi dystopian thriller trilogy. If you like captivating apocalyptic tales, gritty complex heroines, and twists you won't see coming, then you'll love this fast-paced, end-of-the-world adventure!

INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR
What inspired you to write The Undergrounders Series?
I've always been fascinated by regimes and resistance movements, and the heroes who emerge from atrocities. I grew up reading every concentration camp escape story I could get my hands on. As an author, I find it intriguing to place characters--especially strong teen heroines--in dystopian, post-apocalyptic or sci-fi settings and watch what unfurls inside them as they go head to head with staggering odds. After spending several summers in Idaho, and learning more about Preppers and survivalists, the idea to plant Derry Connolly in a bunker community of homesteaders and mountain men took seed and The Undergrounders Series was born. Think of it as a young adult adventure series meets dystopian survival fiction!
Have you always enjoyed writing?
I grew up among rich storytelling traditions in my native Ireland and it was a natural transition for me to try my hand at writing. Irish legends are full of action, adventure, impossible missions, and unlikely heroes, and to this day nothing captivates me more than an epic story, whether it's an apocalyptic thriller or a fast paced action book. Any thrillers for teens along the lines of The Hunger Games or The Divergent Series are always a must read for me, only because I'm endlessly fascinated by the capacity of heroic individuals to rise above tyranny and change the course of history.

Book Description Dunecadia Publishing. Paperback. Condition: New. 260 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.6in.The Sweepers are coming. They hunt the young. The only place left to hide is underground. When the earths core overheats and the sovereign leader vanishes, a young girl becomes the survivors only hope.

Anything along the lines of The Hunger Games or The Divergent Series is a must read for me, only because Im endlessly fascinated by the capacity of heroic individuals to rise above tyranny and change the course of history. A strong heroine in a young adult action series is a plus! How did you choose the titleThere are three books in the series and the titles track the internal growth of the main protagonist Derry Connolly. Immurement, Book One, is the state of being entombed or confined in an enclosed space. At the outset Derry is trapped in self-doubt and insecurity. The bunker symbolizes the prison she needs to break out of in order to find her place and calling in a world with no rules. Embattlement, Book Two, is the state of being engaged in battle or conflict. As well as describing the obvious physical struggle against the Sweepers, the title symbolizes the civil war of sorts that wages inside as Derry rises up against everything that has been holding her back. Judgement, Book Three, is the act of imposing judgement. Derry discovers a lot of harsh truths about leadership during her journey, not the least of which is that every great leader must discern when to seek reconciliation and when to pursue retribution. Internally, Derry evaluates her own moral imperfections and the darkness lurking in her own heart. Best piece of advice for writers trying to break inIf writing is where your passion and strengths intersect, dont take your eyes off the goal. Put your shoulder to the wheel and throw your whole heart into mastering the craft, and taking incremental steps toward publication. Dogged persistence will get you there in the end, and the talent you have honed along the way will be your staying power. This item ships from multiple locations.
